Well, it was on this weekend at Spadra, but it just took a little time. The other half and I got the tent all set up and got out on the water around 4:30pm Saturday. Netted a few shad, but could only manage about 8 pull downs.....and no fish. Today (Sunday) was a different story. Maybe the full moon had something to do with it. Shad were jumping in the boat as were a few big gizzard shad. We netted plenty. It looked almost like Kerr shad. We fished in and around Spadra creek. Did drift the main channel to see how fast.....3.40mph.....too stinking fast. My call to the corps revealed 98,000cfs. We set up in the mouth of Spadra, way back in the creek and all points in between. Besides having to dodge the Federation Bass Boys, we caught fish at all places, but got into a frenzy out in front of the railroad bridge. At one point, I had 5 rods bouncing and tugging. Here was the catch. We caught a lot of blues today on that hole and put 2 gallons of fillets away.........and ALL fish were caught on Gizzard fillets.....no Threadfin shad caught a fish. Never had that before. :embarassed:OK Sam, you need to get out that bottle of Absorbine Jr. you have. I got my butt whipped again. She caught the 11 pounder. I "only" mustered fish up to 5 pounds. I was "battling" a 2 pounder when her big fish hit. Oh well, we had a great day and caught a bunch of blues. Team Cat 5/0 and 8/0 double action hooks and 80# Tug-o-War did the trick once again.
