    Last weekend we fished Around the mouths of Grassy creek and some surrounding areas. Our first stop was goat island, we marked a few fish, but slow on the bite. Fished in 20-35ft of water, using cut shad and faired well with 9 blue cats up to 22lbs. Plus with 25+mph winds made if rough to find a suitable spot outta the wind. We found a few points with Channel ledges with enough slack wind to were we could anchor and be able to hold or not zig zag on the anchor ropes. Hopfully it aint that windy when you decided to head out.

    Go farther down the lake on the ledges with BIG bait.
