Just wanted to let some folks know that the pre spawn bite is heating up at lake shawnee in topeka - Fri. night 9 keepers - big fish 7 1/4lb all the rest 2 1/2 to 4 - lasnight 13 - big fish 6 1/2 lbs others 2 to 4. Hitting so hard switched to circle hooks instead of kahles - cut fresh shad 3 to 5 feet of water along weed beds with chunk rock or dead falls about 1/2 way back in the coves - cut back pockets have been best for the #'s but the bigger fish are coming off the weed bed points - best fishing has been between 10:30p.m. and midnight and then a good # around 2a.m. Surface temps are in the mid 70's and there are lots of small schools of shad roaming - good luck!!!!!
