    Our water surface temperatures are around 41-44 degrees right now in the piedmont. Shad can not survive in those water temperatures very long. That means the bait will be deep, and I am betting the cats will be deep also. Tomorrow I will be out on the water, so we will see if that holds true.

    Tomorrow I will be keeping my eyes open for any signs of a shad kill. This will be evident a bit after sunrise when the birds take to flying. If there are dead or flopping shad then that area will get the anchors.

    My last trip out for catfish was two weeks ago and the water temp then was 49-50. Things have changed a lot since them. Since then I have been striper fishing, but now it is time to seek out the big cats. With a little luck maybe I can find some tomorrow.

    Seems be some shad die off and bait and fish have moved to deep water at least the last couple days. Good luck
