Took the day off and went fishing with my brother-in-law yesterday. Great day! We boated 22 channels between 10 AM and 4 PM catching 19 of them before 2 PM. We were seriously averaging 5 lbs with several 6's and a 7 for bigs through 19 of them. The last 3 we caught were less than 4 lbs with on 1.5 lber. That probably brought our average down to 4+. We released them all. We were using fresh shad and trolling in deeper waters. Another note...I have never caught so many fish with fat bellies. They were all absolutely pigging out on something. I was tempted to kill on to see what they were eating but I guess I don't care as long as they'll bite on shad. Mike.
