Went out for the afternoon today. It was about 50 degrees, rainy, and high winds (50mph gust). Got set up at the first spot and immediately got a decent channel. The fish kept coming all day. Ended up with 10 fish. I struck out on the size factor though, biggest being about 12 pounds.

I was fishing washout and scour holes in 25-35 feet of water. My most productive bait of the day was skipjack fillets but live shad about 4 inches also were very successful.

Unfortunately i left the camera at home, so no pictures from this trip, but everybody should get out, this warm air seemed to turn them on. They were hitting hard and frequently.

Max,
Did you fish locally today? I saw someone out today fishing a nice eddy hole a couple mile south of Rising Sun but didnt recognize the boat. Thanks for the report. I made it out yesterday but the bite was really slow then, maybe its starting to turn on again. rspd507

Yeah that was me. Did ya beep because I had a couple people honk as they were passing and i just thought they were letting me know I was an idiot :big_smile:

We fished that scour hole you saw me at (remain annonymous) and they were there, thick. We couldn't keep poles in and each dropped down to two poles to slow the bites and hook up. They were stacked at the very front edge of the scour hole getting outa the current so we just use drop rigs with 7-10 oz of weight and dropped straight down on them. Let me know if you wanna get out sometime ross! We marked some nice arcs that looked like good fish, just didn't hook any of them up, but they are there!

I'm back living in town now so get used to seeing that boat out! :cool2:

Max, Ive had alot of success at that spot this year myself. Vern and I fished it a few days ago with him catching several with the biggest being an 18 pound blue. Yeah, we could hook up sometime and go out and maybe fish a tournament together this year. Ross
