    I am going to fish the hot water discharge for blues on friday and I wondered if anyone had fished it lately and what they caught. I also was wondering about the condition of the river right now..Any shad present for bait, or skipjacks?:confused2: Any help with this would be wonderful. Thanks.

    Discharge is not a very good fishery for Blues. Lots of channels though. I haven't seen it lately so I cant give ya any info on bait, there is usually plenty of shad around there.

    Went there last Sat. we did not catch any skip jacks. The wind started blowing hard, so we only stayed for a couple hours. We saw a few shad jumping not much else going on.

    I was there about a month ago, I might head back out there tomorrow, I was on the bank fishing for skips. Not a single one, however there was a lot of movement in the water so I threw my cast net and got a net full of shad. The shad seemed to be really stacked up in there. It was really cold though and the warmer water was probably why they stacked up.
