    Things are startin to pick back up just a little but not near like it should be.Me and Brandon caught 6 fish 2, 3, 8, 10, 15, and 20 lbs.Anchored on drops with gizzard shad.The bait is bunched up in big balls.Maybe after this warm week we have it will cause a die off and cause a major feeding to go on.Tried slip corks for a while with no luck, those things are hard to get used to.Heres a few pics.

    I need to get back and try it again. Lots of nice mid lake humps and long points there. I am sure they will hold some cats!

    Nice catch Chris, we are thinking of having a little tourney March 3rd at twin lakes if any of you are interested........on Lake Hartwell. The bite has seemed to pick up a little on Hartwell this weekend, nothing real big, but exciting anyway.

    Hey Chrisblue, you should try them corks when it gets hot in the summer. They are great when blues suspend ove deep water. Replace your drift rigs with slip corks and keep fishing. Usually you'll have enough channels to keep ya' busy with some nice blues mixed in. I don't get the blues in the numbers in the summer, but what I get are usually ove 20 lb. see ya
