    Stayed out all night Friday night. Found some nice shad but same old story, no big blues. Had a few bites but nothing decent. They stooped running water before midnight and it was dead till daylight. Took the Family snagging Sat. did real well, lot of fish tied on boats. I was beat sat. night and didn't fish, but should have it was to rough to fish Sunday. We snagged Four more spoonies and came home. Would like to go back down in a week or so, If they keep running water it should be good fishing.
    pretty nice weekend with the exceptions of the high winds.

    Don't think I'd waste a trip down here until we get enough rain that they'll run water reliably - by the time you get here, they'll probably have it shut off again and that'll kill the bite.

    When the water moves, the fish bite. No question about that.

    I couldn't find shad until the stopped running water. Then I netted shad at the mouth of a overflow pipe. But they weren't there until the water started running back into the river.

I WAS UP THERE TWO WEEKENDS AGO AND CAUGHT THREE GOOD FISH IN THE HOLE OUT FROM THE HANDICAP PIER. TRIED THERE THIS WEEKEND AND THEY WERNT THERE SO I MOVED UP AND FOUND THEM.
