    Friday morning we fished up on truman ,rain and windy weather but still caught fish in 3ft to 12 ft around berry bend. Big fish 16lb some 3lb.Sat morning shad were in deep water 20ft osage bluffs. :roll_eyes:Great day of fishing , fish were in 12ft 25ft water lots of 3 to 5lb and 2 10lb fish.Fishing with cut shad sides,heads,whole shad but they wanted small chunks of shad. Lost track of how many fish but twice had 3 rods in boat with fish on them. Sunday morning went right back and fish 5 hours one fish 3lb.:sad2: Could not buy a bite.Boy did it rain and sleet, but did manage to get a cold.Should have went home sat night. Good luck to everyone hope this helps. Water temps were between 47 and 52.
