I'm skunking!!! Got down here friday night the 14th, in the Gravios Mills area, water temp is running 41-44 and theres a pretty good shad kill going on with the 2-3" shad only seen a handfull of adult shad floating up. I've been using mostly large (frozen) cut shad I caught down here in Nov. fishing mostly deep spent all day saturday fishing ledges and channel drops from about 30-60 ft deep and not a bite all day w/ 3 rigs in the water. Started w/ standard 18" leader, tried fishing right on the bottom too no luck. I was marking lots of fish 6-7 feet off the bottom in about 55' of water so i tried a bobber rig keeping my bait about 6ft off the bottom, still no luck. Been at it for 3 days straight and not even a BITE yet!! Any suggestions? I've done real well with the same batch of frozen shad previousley but I'm wondering if I should scrap it and stick to the 2-3" kill thats floating up? Tried some yesterday for a bit to no avail. Its been raining and overcast since I got here but tommorow should be sunny. On spring break so I'll be here fishing all week weather they bite or not. Just wonder if I'm overlooking something, usualy I can at least catch some small ones, or even channels, or even get bites! I even tried using some big nightcrawlers that washed out with the rain. Just got about 3" of rain and I'm going to try a shallow mud flat in a feeder creek I do well on in summer months but never fished in the winter..also experimenting with my new Humminbird SI 981 and got some questions I'll ask in the appropiate thread later on that..any advise appreciated...good luck gents.
