    Don't discount the asians. A lot of good fish have been caught this year on cut asians...AND they are pretty easy to come by. Most times they jump right into your boat!:eek:oooh:

    If you go to the barrels by granite city you should be able to get shad. But if your gunna go there get there before dark cops have been chaseing people of after dark.couple weeks ago we got some shad about 6 inches long there. As far as fishing have got to many big 1s out around that area this year.

    It's a little bit of a drive, but I caught hundreds of shad on Thomas Hill lake last weekend.
