Went down to the lake yesterday and fished for about 1/2 day just trying to locate some fish for next week its spring break and I have a few kids to take out next week in search of some big santee cats. Fished shallow but found most of the fish on a heavy dropoff in about 25-30ft deep. The water temps yesterday morning were 58deg but warmed up to 64 by lunch. The bite was real slow matter of fact the big fish of the day was a 24.5lb blue that picked up the bait and swam with the boat for nearlly 5 minutes before pulling the rod down. I just new it was a flathead but turned out not to be. I kept 3 fish to et and 2 of them were full of eggs and I dont mean ready to lay but they had been eating eggs. They were mid teen fish not little fish. All fish that I caught apperred to be females but didnt seem to be ready to lay yet maybe next month.
