I got on Badin Lake at 11am and fished till 2am. 15 Hours without getting a good bite, baitcast clickers never sounded once. I fished frozen shad, up river and down, anchored in 9 locations, deep (45 feet) to shallow. I don't know what was worse, sitting at a location and have the rods do nothing, or go to a place and have the rod tips bumping and reel in nothing but a shad's head or mauled body. I don't know if there are turtles in 40 feet of water or if it's fish too small to eat an entire 5" shad at once.
