I went fishing today and finding the shad was tough. So was the catfishing. Several small fish bites. Believe it or not I caught 4 white bass and hybrids while fishing with cut shad. Biggest was about 5 pounds. Last time out I did the same thing. I only boated about 5 catfish. Nothing big enough to eat. I guess that's why they call it fishing and not catching. I would guess the front coming through had a little to do with it being so slow.
