Well I am back to fishing. Old Hickory is on fire again. Yesterday I went out with no bait and couldn't catch a skip found about 60 or 70 small shad and boy did they like em. I caught probably about 30 fish, sizes were much better than usually. Caught a few around 30lbs and a bunch in the 20's and teens. I filled up a 50gallon trash can with just guts after filleting them. Went back today and caught some shad and slammed them again. Today they were smaller fish. Biggest was probably around 25 but probably caught about 20 around 5 to 10lbs. Caught a big stripe around 20lbs. Old hick is good to go for the next 6 months as far as I am concerned any day should produce lots of fish.
