    sun came out and so did i this afternoon. try an ol stand by spot at the mouth of a bay and got lucky. nice eddie and shad markings when i eased up on it, my blood pressure rose a bit im sure. caught some bass gills n crapy in and around the shad school. only had about a 2 hour period till the next front, so i had a hunch they would be on the feed:wink: all fish caught on green twister tail jigs 1/8oz., most in brush, 4ft deep next to the channel.

    Those Pics look familiar. Back at you bro. What was the water temp. I river fished an area today that was 45. The crappie came out of my hole looking all yellow. Half hour later they yellow spots turned to black. I never seen this before. Even the ice crappie I have caught didn't do this. The water color was coffee with milk. Maybe that has something to do with it.

    Nice looking haul man, I got out last week a couple days in a row. Hit a farm pond and caught a small bass, and then hit Wildcat creek at Adams Mill and landed a small walleye out of the whitecaps at the base of the dam. I'm really itching for the bronzebacks and the kitties to start coming on strong though.

    To you Lafayette guys, I assume everyone has heard the news that Sportsman's is closing? I am seriously bummed about it.:embarassed:

    But anyway...Nice Job Tim!

    Yeah Ben, I called them yesterday to see what they had in stock for jon boats. The guy told me they were closing. I've never been in but it looks like a nice store. Too bad!

    Tim, I don't think T really has a cell phone...or he gave you a bad number. He never seems to answer when we call him about meeting us after work to catch cats.
