We're starting to catch them at the lake on crappie minnows, nothing that big, but good eat'n size. Best part is we're starting to hammer Crappie as well! win win.
59.2 lbs with out the net, which is to small...Nice work on the big blue! Did you put it on the scale?
Looked up the state record shad and we were still almost a pound short!
Hopefully all these shad live and spawn, because I've got 6 bait ponds stocked now!
Nice fish! It’s getting to be the time of year when they get out in the current and don’t mind eating cut carp or whatever you can throw at them.View attachment 230449
Sunday it was really windy. River is running about 255,000 cfps n anchor kept braking loose. All wing dam’s were under water. Fishing at the end of one of them got caught in a whirlpool. While heading to truck figure might as well tie up n re-rig 2 of the rods that got broke off. Threw a couple rods out n commens’d to rigging. Seen I had a nibble. It pulled some. I cranked down and the fight was on. Drag was pretty tight but it was pulling drag an it was hard to get the rod out of the holder. Started to pump him in It then decided to swim to me. Cranking as fast as I could didn’t know if it was still on or not. He let me know when he was about 30 yards out. Fun while it lasted. Only bite of the day but it sure was a frustrating day.
