    I haven't been fishing since the high water and before that it was hard to find shad down around the dam. Has anyone had any luck finding any lately?

    I haven't been there much, but I saw a guy throw 20 times down below cable and he left without any.I also saw one guy leave and dump his bucket and several dead shad drifted up past me. I didn't see where he got them. While the water was still high. I caught several small (2-4") in real shallow water. Last week several were flipping out away from the bank. lol

    Regan...what time of day are you catching them? I have been catching a very few and what I caught were really small. But the last couple of times I've went late in evening, it has been skunks.

    We held our own for the most part. We were in 5th or 7th the 1st day depending on who you asked:eek:oooh::smile2: We ended up 13th overall. I went as a substitute. We had a blast though. Just found out 777 had a rod oulled out of the boat while he was there, so there goes 150.00:sad2: I think he is in mourning right now:tounge_out::wink:

    Bait Boat, I haven't replaced it yet but it was one of my new 6600 c4's and a custon meat hunter rod:eek:oooh::angry:. We were drifting and i had just caught 2 fish and still had one rod in the holder. About that time my partner caught one and i went to the front of the boat to help him net his. He ended up catching another one at the same time. By the time we were caught back up and i turned around the first thing i noticed was the rod gone from the holder. It never made a sound:eek:oooh::smile2:, it was just gone. We have gps so we back tracked hoping we could snag onto it but never did. We finished out of the money by 16 lbs. and you know that had to be a 30 lber. that snatched my rod:wink::smile2:. Ah well its time to catch some skips for the next one.
