I know most of you guys don't fish pomme but for those that might here's how things went on vacation. The heat was terrible and the water temp was about 87 degs. No shad but really little ones, tons of them. The few shad I did get paid off however. We fished 2 evenings this week about 2hrs each and caught channels both nights I think we had 7 or 8 total and they ranged from nearly 20 lbs to about 2lbs. and only one off a jug about 10 lbs. I believe if a person had some good fresh cut shad they might have limited out, we only went out with 2 or 3 shad each evening. Tried some frozen shad from one of the bait shops but the fish wasn't too crazy about them. The fish we did get was in water from about 16' to nearly 30' on mud flats.
