    Just got back from below Truman. Searched for 3 hours for bait starting around 5:00 p.m. My last throw I caught enough shad for 2 trips.

    Fishing was great until they turned the water completely off at about 12 a.m. I managed to catch a several fish. One fish was 22 lbs , and had another at 10 lbs. Did have a couple of other good bites.

    when they shut the water off i like to spider rig with live shad using the trolling motor to gently and slowly move around then sit for awhile and slowly move again. i run my rods straight down from the boat with the bait around 2 to 10 foot off the bottom.

    its fun watching the rod slowly double over when 1 hits.

    Thanks for the tip on drifting. I wasn't really ready to quit when they shut the water off. Next time I may try that.

    I did hear a boat talking about a 30 lb fish they caught while drifting tonight. You could have heard them a long way when they caught it. They were really hooping it up.
