    I'm on my way to Truman lake today to try out a couple of new rods, and to make sure the boat runs alright after setting all winter. Will post later.

    Good luck to ya! I'd pour a bottle of Seafoam additive in the gas tank just to be safe. I think its about $5 at Oreilly's. Let us know if you do any good. Chris

    Didn't need the sea foam the boat ran great but the cats didn't do much. Did find a good mess of shad but didn't need them. Oh well I'll try them again this weekend.

    Well, I'm going to give it a shot on Thursday and would appreciate any info on where to find shad. I threw the net a ton below the dam Sunday night but they were nowhere to be found. Might go up on the lake to get the shad then fish below the dam. Thanks, Chris

    The place where I found my shad was near mud banks that the wind was blowing to, they were in about 8 to 12 ft. of water. I got mine early so I would say the might not have been that deep later in the day.

    Lyle - did I see you guys drift fishing near the Hwy 83 bridge? There were two boats drifting together.

    I didn't catch a thing yesterday except the stomach flu... Been sleeping on the bathroom floor most of the night. Ugh.
