Dogwoods are blooming, now, so spring should be here to stay. The water temps have really jumped in the past week or two. Catfish are entering prespawn. Now is the time, if you can get out there. I went Tuesday in the river, almost got blown away by the "5-10 mph" wind. Managed a couple of 8-10 lbers. on frozen shad, with a good many small hits. I went at daybreak this morning and caught some American shad for bait, but didn't carry the boat because it was windy, predicted at 10-15. Wouldn't ya know, since mid-day, the wind calmed down and it's beautiful. The weather folks can't seem to get it right. I'm taking that fresh shad at daybreak in the morning and heading to the river. Refuse to even listen to the wind report tonight. Any of you Palmetto boys going this weekend?
