    Went to Island 40 Chute this afternoon, only had about three hours to fish and did not really have any luck there. On the way back to the dock the shad were really showing off. Had five volunteer to be catfish bait (jumped into boat). No way I could refuse so I have them for the next trip.

    Gotta love those volunteers.

    I wish shad would jump into the boat with me instead of Asian Carp.

    Do you think you could teach the shad in Missouri to jump in the boat?

    While pursuing cats and I were fishing Cheatham dam, we were watching them jumping out of the water and up on the rocks next to people that were having a ball grabbing them up for bait. The water being pushed out of the generators just made that water boil as well as boil with shad and skip jack.
