    Well it might be out of your way a bit but Anglers south about 18 mins past monty has shad and herring.... What day do you plan on going? I will be out there tomorrow maybe... and this weekend sometime..

    Your best bet is to get bait, either at one of the bait shops in Anderson or catch it somewhere before you go.Most of the places that sale bait anywhere around Monticello are way out of your way.The one place that sales bait right at Monticello has proved to be very un-reliable.Good Ol Boys Sporting Goods off hwy 187 in Anderson is the cheapest place.They are alot cheaper than the rest of the places, up to $2 cheaper per dozen than some.Heres the link to their site that provides the contact http://www.gobsportingoods.com/index.html

    You can now use a castnet on Monticello, thats one option or you can jig up some white perch when you get there but neither are a definate way of getting bait fast.You might find yourself spending half the day or more just gettin enough bait to fish with.Sometimes its easy..... sometimes its not.

    The bites pretty strong right now as long as the wind aint blowin 20+ so you can get out and fish the deep water comfortably.

    Well I went fishing in the rain since I didn't have to work... Most of all fish was caught on Main lake humps and also drifting was working good for bigguns in 30-70 foot range... Gizzard shad was bait of choice only got a few on herring and bream...
