I went fishing this afternoon. launched at Deep Bottom. Shad were slim. I had to set the net three times to get six fish. I only fished three rods today. Had one monster pull down that had me struggling to get the pole out the rod holder. After pulling drag away from me, the fished turned and hauled butt straight to the boat. I was reeling like crazy and when I finally caught up,,,,,the fish was gone. Darn. Only bite I had. I did see three sturgeons jumping. One below Jones Neck Cut Through and the others down near Presquille. Not many people on the river this afternoon and what a beautiful fall day it was. Saturday I am hunting in the morning and might try a striper trip in the afternoon. Good luck to everyone.
