I went to Badin this morning, put in at old whitney. rode to garr creek and cast netted about 8 shad. not many but I was happy, first time I caught bait after hours trying to throw that net. rode up river. got several bites but caught only 1 -7lb striper. When I woke up to go fishing, my daughter was sick (throwing up) took a shower and my other daughter got sick. when walking out the door to go fishing my wife called from work(she works midnight shift) she was on the way home from work she was also sick. I grab my stuff and ran out the door. you guessed it! about 5 miles from Badin I got sick. but had already made the 1 1/2 drive there so fished anyway. done alright until the sun got warm then I had to go. boy that sucked. several boats up there today. alot in the cove before straight to dam. were they pre fishing?
