    Kaw Lake blues are alive and well! We caught 17 yesterday that weighed approx 200 pounds. The fish are 5 feet from the surface. We found fish for 1/2 mile and all were from 5 to 10' down. My buddies caught 60 with the bulk from 10-15 pounds. My biggest was around 25. We had 4 below 5 pounds and the rest were 10 +. This pattern should last for 30 days or so. One other boat was advised as to where to fish and how to fish and at the end of the day they had not caught a fish. They were drifting with shiners and we were using cut shad. What was sad was that they were drifting exactly where I told them but they did not have cut shad.:sad2:

    Mike - You drove right over the fish. We were there Sunday and the fish are still there. The water temp is 42 -43.5 degs. You have to have fresh shad or you will do no good.

    So George, exactly where are the fish? Getting ready to head over there in a few days. Are they up North past the Coon creek area? What depth were you fishing in? You said they were down 5 to 10 ft but how deep was the water?

    I was North of the Coon Creek launch in 12' of water. If you do not have fresh shad then you probably will not get any fish.

    I would expect them at washunga as well. My friends brought the shad from Great salt Plains dam. No shad no fish.
