    I was on vacation all last week and fished just about every day just downstream of the Harbor at a few hot spots. May 18th I caught a 57, 42, and three others that were over 15. Went again on the 20th and caught a 37 and a 24. Have a few pics, one of the 57 and 42 in the boat. They were all released after I got them weighed and swam off fine, I was worried since I had that 57 out of the water for a little while but it swam off fine. Chris

    Nice looking fish - sounds like you had a pretty good vacation. Your timing was certainly good, with them just starting to release water. I hear it's really rolling through the dam now but the fishing is still good.

    Hoping I can get down there on Memorial Day...

    Hey Chris sounds like you had a good time. I would love to spend a week down there right now. Did you have your best luck on shad heads or sides? I was down there on the 17th and 18th and caught more fish on sides but my biggest fish came off a head.

    I caught the biggest fish on a "chunk". I was using heads and then just cutting the shad from top to bottom in 1 inch sections but it really didn't matter. Oh, shad are stacked up on the Harbor finally, easiest to find after dark. I was averaging 5-8 on each throw and they were big dudes. I probably saw you down there, I was in a 14 foot Jon boat pulled by a black Durango. Just me and my blue eyed dog as always. Chris

    I think I remember a guy launching a Jon boat boat with a black truck, But I don't remember seeing a dog. Does your boat have a pretty new 2 stroke Merc. ? If so I was standing on the walk talking to an older gentleman. my boat was tied to the dock(camo seaark 20ft.) Anyway Thanks for the info. I wont be going down over this holiday weekend (to many boats) but hoping to get back there the following weekend. Good Luck
