    I had no sucess today on Sooner. Took the wife and kids. Probably got there too late and left to early for the good bite. Caught 4 fish. Struggled to find bait. Caught some gills but prefer shad. Whites surfaced a little over deep water but never stayed up long enough to do any good. Drift for cats was poor at best. First trip to Sooner so some of the guys familiar with the lake may have tore them up but definitely not the case for me and the family. Matt

    Switch to a different lake. Sooner is not that good for blues.

    Went to Sooner for a change of pace. Wasn't up for the crowd at Kaw on the holiday weekend. I am up for fishing for anything that is biting well when the wife and kids are along. Didn't have to be blues. I just couldn't make anything happen for any species. My kids love to fish when it is catching. I want to keep them passionate about the outdoors and spending time as a family.
