    Went out last weekend and fought the wind. Shad are scarce, if you see one hittin, throw the net, you only get one shot then they're gone. A few whites here and there. A few people got lucky and hit them just right and caught a few. I didnt, and couldnt find a catfish to save my life. Still working out new boat issues (mainly depth finder at this point), by the time it gets warm i'll be ready! Will probably be a few weeks before i get to go back out, but i dont think i'll be missing anything.

    People here have been limiting out on the whites aroung the 164 marker. Also been getting good limits here in the cove but not quite as big of fish.
    Been tearing the blues up in about 3 to 2 ft. of water around stick-ups on shad and cut perch.
    Hoping to see u soon.

    Don`t know about Riverside, but their biting decent at the mouth of the Trinity on Lake Livingston on shad and cut carp, in about 6` of water. Nothing huge but plenty in the 5 to 10 # range. Good luck!

    Went last weekend for just a couple hours and fished in a cove close to thomas lake and couple places just off the river and didnt get anything but a buffalo. I'm really ticked at Lowrance right now about my depth finder and hope to get a trolling motor on this weekend, tired of fightin the wind. Taking me forever to get the boat fixed up!

    Is Bells Camp still there? You might be a redneck if you have ever drank a cold one at Bells Camp. And I qualify.
