    Got out today with Jason, fished from about noon until 5:30. The fish were biting today!

    No monsters but we got a dozen, 4 over 20lbs the biggest was 28lbs. Got most of the fish in less than 8ft of water and the biggest one came out of about 3ft. All on Carolina rigs on shad. We probably should have caught at least 20 fish but we had a bunch of quick releases. Found some new spots that were very productive. Water temps are down in the high 40's now :wink:

    Had such a good day I didn't even care I broke my transducer off!

    Cleaned two of the little dudes and one of them was full of some kind of goby looking fish. Couldn't really tell b/c they were pretty well digested but I'd never seen any fish like that in one. And the other had one our baits that he'd stole earlier on LOL!
