Spent the day fishing with my grandson. First we went to whiskey slough, out at bacon island where they had the flood. You can still see a few fields that are still flooded. On the way to our spot, we saw half a dozen people fishing in the ditches! I have no idea if they were catching anything, but they were still there when we left. I caught one small cat in about an hour. We decided to head to 8mile road to give a try at my boat slip out at the paradise point islands. We had heard reports of some nice stripers biting on shad. We did see a few schools of shad being chased during the boat ride to the island. We started out perch fishing and caught one after another for several hours. We didnt keep any because the were all very small. I switched over to catfishing and caught one small cat on a night crawler. After a couple hours of that, it seemed time to play and we broke out my buddies jetski and raced up and down the river. Chris, my grandson and his friend Altia, took the paddel boat for a cruise. Spent some time working on the dock. Set up a bench, umbrella and my custom homemade rod holder. Should be a nice spot once the weather warms up. Yesterday was a beautiful day in the 70s, not bad for the beginning of feb!
