    Last two times I have been to the spillway in the last two weeks have been a disappointment! Plenty of gills, drum, everything else. But them big cutter shad haven't been in there or below the wall. A bunch of 2-3inchers. Anyone been there and having the same problem? Hope they move back in there before long! rollo

    I know in the lake itself those li'l ones have been raising hell breaking the water.... haven't' seen or heard of anyone getting anything of decent size out of the lake or the spillway lately, tho...

    I have found that sticking them near the eyes, in the upper part of the head is a more solid hook-up. Basically, between the eyes and the gills.
