    Jerry,
    I fished a half day today. Launched a Deep Bottom. Bait was easy. Funny thing, last three weeks tons of shad all up and down the north bank of the Deep Bottom loop. Not so today. I had to look like crazy to find decent marks to fish. I only caught one biggun today. Beautiful Day. Lots of eagles flapping around. A big ship came by as I was leaving.

    Water Temp has dropped from 50-51 back to 46 with the cold days. Yesterday was sweet 62 degrees by noontime. I love to fish the winter in a wool shirt and only put on the coat when I am running the boat. But,,,,,,,,,,,I have noticed over the years............., the fish do bite better on low light days, cloudy is best. Ohio Jeff, If it isn't blowing a gail Sunday, I will be fishing. Which ramp are you putting in and at what time Sunday morning? Current forcast is cloudy with 50% chance of rain late. That I can handle. As I was loading up yesterday, I saw two different boats putting in at Deep Botton. They were getting bait for a Catfish Tournament out of Jordon Point today. I might ride down this afternoon and take some pictures when they get back for the weigh in.
