    My brother and I launched at Deep Bottom at 12:30 today. No trailers except our to be seen. Wind was howling 20 + out of the south and temp rose to almost 60. Set the gill net for 25 minutes and got 11 big gizzard shad. We fished five of my favorite spots including the double secret spot and only had one pull down that didn't hook up. I think it was a 4 or 5 pound cat trying to be a bad azzz. All the sudden the wind changed from 20+SW to 20+ NW. Rain coming down in sheets. Thank goodness we had sense enough to put on rain gear before we started. Rain changed to a drizzle. We fished another hour to no avail. Odd, when I put the boat in the driveway, I took my Labrador for a long walk and darned if it wasn't howling out the southwest again. Durned unstable weather queered my fishing for sure.

    Got to report the dog trips along with the good ones. This was a doggy. Not to be discouraged, I am going Sunday.

    Thanks for the report. I always enjoy reading them regardless of the number of fish caught! It is always nice just to get out and be on the water.

    Wow Keneth,

    I think I watched that same show (minus the wind and rain) Saturday.

    Thanks for the report.

    I am swearing off the double secret spot. All the luck in that place has been milked dry by Mike and Josh. I promise I will never fish that loser place again.:roll_eyes::roll_eyes::roll_eyes::roll_eyes::smile2:

    I'm sure it was still an adventure. The big ones are just taking a break.

    Not photoshopped just a weird camera angle.. It was taken with Ralphs camera and the taker was at an angle and a little close. But I can promise its real.
