    well ducain and i went out today. we got to our bait hole {shad were there on the 19th}. no shad to be found, well i netted a big ole branch, and while trying to get it out i happened to see one shad fall out of the net back into the water:crying: after about 5 or six more casts i told ducain one more time in the deed and i guess well go home. well i netted one baitfish. so we said lets give it a try for about 30 min. i got skunked again. but youll have to wait for ducain to give ya the rest of the story.

    Don't feel bad I went out the other night and couldn't find a chub anywhere. I ended up wasting so much time looking for bait I didn't even get to go fishing.

    oh i wasnt saying that we didnt fish. that one blue gill had a bad day. ducain took the head and i took a slab. leaving enough for each of us to bait up one more time if we had any luck.

    I'll try to get the pic up, but the upside is that I caught a 5 or so # flattie on the head of that one bluegill that BigFish managed to net.

    Water was 48 degrees.

    A flathead...in WV...in 48 degree water...in March.

    Ya baby. :)

    Fortunately, while he was busy messing around wrapping his lure around trees, I was getting the job done.
