Where's everybody been? Very few posts this week so either you're all out fishing or busy doing other things. I took my brother and sister-in-law drift fishing near G14 on Saturday and it wasn't much of a trip. We were late getting on the water - had a hard time catching shad at the Windsor city pond. We considered just getting on the water and finding shad there, but I'm glad we didn't - the water was muddy and the wind was awful and I couldn't have found a shad to save my life. Then the wind was blowing better than 20 mph and drifting sideways was a disaster. We made a few more passes with the drift socks out the front of the boat which made the ride more bearable. Once the sun went over the horizon, the wind almost stopped, which was just as bad as no wind at all. We were off the water by 9:30pm. Only caught 4 fish altogether and only was was keeper size. Ended up throwing him back. My boat just isn't big enough for 3 people to fish out of, especially when 2 of the three are restless and can't sit still. Had an impossible time getting my brother to lay off grabbing the rod every time it twitched - tried to explain how circle hooks work but not sure I got through. Overall, it was a long evening and not a stellar fishing experience. Oh well, better luck next time. On the plus side, however, I got my new bait tank from Ed's Bait Tanks (dot com) and got to try it out - kept my shad alive and fiesty for better than 4 hours, which is better than they ever did in the livewell. Once I've had a chance to use the tank some more, I'll post an more thorough review. So what have the rest of you been up to?
