    Hey Chris Ive was down there thursday and saturday. There are a few shad here and there. The mooneyes and skipjack are no where to be found. I tried and tried to find them along with several other guys and no luck. There is a old man called "Doc" he smokes a pipe that fishes down there every day. He know his sh"" at the winfield lock. The man lives there every day and he cant find them so that usually means their not in there. The minnows are starting to pour up in there though so the skips should be right behind them.
