1. The rain had the water moving and this fish hungry for the Tuesday tournament. All fish caught next to deep water in 5-6 FOW. All caught on hard baits. The fish ...more were actively feeding in current. We took first with 5 fish for 19.45. Big bass was a little over six. Second place had 17 pounds. The fish were biting.

  2. Catfish are biting shallow early. Fishing under a slip cork about three feet deep. Not a fast bite but consistent. We probably caught 30.

      What is the secret to catching bowfins? I've had one and only one in my life and it got off the spinnerbait.
    3. Gabe Mitchell 0
      Sounds like a great trip to me. Never caught a bowfin, heard they're mean sobs

  4. Found a couple of grubs. Would love to see the size of perch that would eat one of these things. Really did think about trying to use them for bait.

      you must be close to indian shores area. we found 31 year before last. didnt get to try them for cat bait. However, if I ever find some again. they will hit a hook
    2. Joe Olsem 0
      I can imagine those grubs exploding when you try to put it on the hook! They're like supersized wax worms!
