    First I appreciate the tips to find bait last fri. it didn't work out so we took a ride up to Hills to get some. We drifted Sat and Sun from about 8 in the morn until 4 or so in the afternoon and for about three hours mon. morning. All told we caught 23 fish drifting in 45-55 feet. There was no action at all when we drifted any shallower than that. The water was about 47 degrees I guess and we fished cut shad the whole time. We put 23 on the boat i was on but we didn't get any size. Our biggest fish was 15 lbs. We had lots of action and it kept us busy. No explanation for not getting any big ones, just in the wrong spots I guess. That wasn't horrible though because my freezer was empty and I was in need of some eaters. We drifted out in front of Short Stay from MM #'s 2-7. Had a good time and it we stayed half way warm believe it or not. Tennesee Blues was with me and Cajunkicker from the BOC here. Thanks again for the tips and help..................Brian
