    The last Kerr Lake thread was too long-winded, so I had to start another one with this post.

    March 5 found me on the lake in one of the better known honey-holes. I spent 3 hours on the lake fishing for blues and managed a 54 and a 21 that were CPR'd, 5 blues between 4 and 9 pounds and two channels at 3 pounds that were fileted. The big girl came on a live 11 inch long nose-hooked shad and the rest came on fresh cut (still bleeding) shad.

    Way to go! Nice day on the water. It never ceases to amaze me at the size of bait that these fish will take. Makes me think twice about letting the kids swim in certain areas!:smile2:

    L&D16 was generating with 2 generators while L&D15 was ginning with 4 causing a nice 4mph current in the old river channel.

    All the fish came from the flat in 25-30 feet of water near the channel drop-off. I was anchored on the flat near the current seam.

    As a side note, most of the smaller fish contained partially digested whole shad in the 9-12 inch range. Their bellies were so distended that they looked like another bite would bust them wide open.

    The shad kill this winter must have taken more of the small shad than I thought... leaving only the more mature shad. At times, there were hundreds of thousands of 2-4 inch shad floating belly up on the water, only to disappear a few minutes after the gulls and cormorants spotted them.

    Kerr is currently host to about 100,000 white pelicans and who knows how many gulls and cormorants. They darken the sky every morning.

    That's a nice looking blue there Albert. Congrats. Those bellies sure do get big in the wintertime.

    A buddy of mine and 2 of his friends caught 45 blues from 4-20 pounds in 7 hours on Kaw. The bigger fish, 20's, were caught at 30' and the 15's were in 15-20'. Half the fish caught were over 12 pounds. Appears to be a wintering area.
