    Welcome to the BOC! Try using shad sides or nightcrawlers after a rain. With warm weather approaching the bite will pick up and there will be more options. Stay on them and keep trying different baits. They can be real picky sometimes.

    The most often mentioned bait for this time period is shad guts. Nothin wrong
    with your choices at all. This is just a frustrating time of year. Persevere!

    your choice of bait is fine in a few more weeks you will stack up channels like cord wood on shad or shad guts
