Went to Kaw yesterday. I put in about 5pm and wanted to fish until about mid morning. The lake level is pretty close to normal and the water is slightly murky. I talked to the gate attendant on the way in. He said that some of the campers had been catching a few blues but they were mostly small. They were using jugs with perch. Took me a while to locate and net some shad. They were up the river along the sandy banks in about three feet of water. I wasn't seeing any fish on my sonar except real small stuff in small schools. I went up the river to Coon Creek area to check out the state fishing report (good?). Not good. I fished all night in the river. Fished about 45 min in any one spot. I tried to stay near the bait fish. I still never saw any decent size fish on sonar. I fished till daylight and never had a bite on fresh cut and live shad. I gave it to them and went home. This was a duplicate of another trip a few days ago on the Cimarron off of Keystone. I keep trying but its been mightly slim for too long. Guess I'll go back to my knitting.
