    Had to take my bow to the shop yesterday and desided to swing by the spillway for awhile . Man that place sure has went to the crapper . It is so full of asain carp its terrible . I didnt see a shad anywhere . I was using cut shad and cut carp as bait . The damn asains was trying to eat the cut bait I caught an asain carp around 30 pounds on the cut carp ....lol .

    Didnt see anyone catching any cats . As a matter of fact I didnt see anyone catching anything but asain carp . Some people was keeping them . (yuck)
    different strokes for different folks I guess . I do believe that was my last trip to the spillway for good . Going to have to go way below the bridge and not sure that will help .
