    Good luck, I would be curious to how that works, I will be hitting East Fork tommorow night for some flatties myself. Always use floats, never had any luck drifting for them there. But then again its hard to drift in pitch dark coves in about 3 ft of water!:smile2::wink:

    Did you do any good Shawn? Will be there on the bank tonight with 3 other members. Can we expect to catch a Flathead or not? What was the water temp?

    Not much luck. Shad were small and hard to come by, caught a small bass, a tiny gill and two good size gills. Caught an 8lb channel on a cut shad at 8:30 and had two very small hits at 10:00 and 10:20. Left around 11ish met some people one was a member, invited the rest. The temp was right around 59 degrees. Didn't drift as the water was glass smooth with no wind. May go back tonight as a front is due through Sunday.
