what a nice day on the lake. a little breezy but, we did manage to get some nice cats in the boat. Bait was a chore I turned on my fish alarm and was able to target a school of shad my first cast got me three shad my second cast was hoping to get three more but i must have hit the school and pulled up over 40 shad. got my bait for the rest of the winter, surprise. we were getting most of the larger cats on whole shad we boated 6 in the 5-9lb range and lost as many, most hooks up were solid but some were a faint hook up. we drifted fish for all of our cats and water temp was around 43 f, just a note: we lost one that broke water and looked to run around 15+ range. not bad day out for winter/spring catting. With the warm weather this week the water temp may be going up a little and the bite may be much better by the weekend. Hoping to see some of my Oak Hollow buddies out there.
