You guys weren't kidding when you said bait was hard to get! I did get enough to fish with in 1 throw(maybe 250-300 threadfin), but it was the previous 20-30 throws that wore me out! I caught bait down lake about 4 mi from bridge, in the mouth of a creek. We ended up with somewhere around 20, with most being white cats. We did have a few blues and channels, with the biggest being 17#.
