    Went out last night and the bite wasn't as good as earlier in the week.we still got 7 decent ones, biggest 1 was 10 lbs. was me and Randy (Impak209), and Mickey (Howie Ketchdem). the bite wasn't as good like I said but had good company. Sure beat all those nights I was going by myself.
    Details, the 10 pounder was caught on chicken liver, most of the rest were on cut bait or whole shad. water had dropped about 1 foot since we were out tuesday but is still considered up. Wind was blowing pretty hard and had a good chill to it. We were fishing on the bottom using at least 3oz of weight. I got there first, about 9:15 and had the 10 lber on the stringer when randy and mickey got there. Was lots of hits but few good grab and runs. By 2 the bite was definately done.
    Looks like the number of shad is decreasing by the day, Tues they were so thick you swear you could walk on em and not get your feet wet in the water, last night they were hard to spot. Had a hard time getting enough to use for bait using a cast net. Probly why the bite wasn't as good, they are getting full of shad.
