Finally hit the water today. Paint Creek lake was the destination of choice! Water temp 80-82 degrees NO CURRENT!! Fished from 0900-1330 Outside temp 90+ Well I put my faith in the Skipjack that was in the freezer, but it is going bad and was very hard to keep on the hook. I caught a few fresh shad in my net and was finally able to catch 1, 2 pound channel cat while drifting in just 5 feet of water!!! I spent the entire morning drifting the old creek channel trying to fish depth and structure and couldn't get a bite. So.................we moved to an area that provided some relief from the sun and finally got 2 good runs prior to catching my 1 fish. Water was very quiet today with just 2 other boats sited!!
