I spent a great afternoon and evening yesterday on Lake Marion, fishing with my two daughters and their husbands. What a great way to spend my Birthday! CatfishJunkie and husband invited me to go along with them and other daughter on their pontoon. Fish bit a little slow, but we managed a few blues from 2 - 15#'s. Wind shifted to the south after midnight and the bite dropped off quite a bit. Had lots of trouble with gars picking up the baits, but ended with a great evening. Wonderfull company, plenty of food!, and Trisha caught her largest fish ever (15# blue). Water temps were about 73 deg., S-W winds 10 - 15. We caught some drifting before dark, and the rest anchoring in 4-6' of water, using cut fresh herring for bait.
