    Same thing here. Found some shad, found some fish but not a very hot bite. We managed to pull up one 10# blue. Couldn't get a single bite with frozen baits.

    I did get a gar and a carp in the cast net by accident.

    We fished the ohio side allday on a big inside bend. As far as how deep, im not sure cause i broke the transducer clean off my boat as soon as I took off up river when they called my launch number.First 2 minutes of tourny and hit a log and broke the transducer.. If I had to guess I would say i caught them in 10 to 15 ft of water, right up on the bank. Since I didnt have a finder, i just fished wood..It was only by the grace of god that we caught our limit.
