I met up with Mike & Bill around 1 p.m. yesterday. They had a hard time getting fresh shad for bait . Finally got the boat ready for the 1st drift pass at 2:30 Made two long passes no bites, and really did not mark any fish. Checked out the area and found some fish with the fish finder. This time we anchored the boat. Fished for about an hour no bites. Mike pulled the anchor and moved to one of his favorite spots. He marked fish there as usual. Finally at 6:15 Mike boated a 7.7 pound bluecat. Mike had 2 other bites, Bill & I had NONE! Headed back to the dock at 7 p.m. I just can not figure out why not much in the way of bites with the fresh bait? The sunset alone made it a great time on the river.
