So after several dissappointing attempts at fishing over the last month I decided to go all out Thursday night. I took the boat out, took 3 jugs, 4 rods, some perch, and caught fresh shad and some worms. Baited up the jugs with perch/shad, and baited 2 rods with shad, one a 7 inch shad, one with 3 inch shad, 1 pole with worms and the other a 5 inch perch. I was fishing starting in 15 foot of water drifting about 300 yard towards a cove. The end depth was 28 foot. I ended with 3 cats (2 channels, 1 blue) that were about 15 inches on the small shad. The large shad had 1 hit that made me believe it was a huge fish but I missed hooking him. Got 1 blue on a jug about 3# but he got off when he got to the surface. Over all I was happy that I caught something, but still kinda dissappointing in the summer time fishing in my lake. Luckly the water temp is dropping fast, was 86ish last weekend and this weekend was about 80-82. And were finally getting some decent rain to refill our lakes. Im just waiting for the Fall bite to start, its my favorite season for blues.
