Garrett is out of school this week and he and Debbie said they'd mind the store so I could
take a day to off to go Shad fishin'...

Air temp warmed up to 48 degrees F on the thermometer on the front porch before I left the house.
Yep, I had on long handles and two pair of socks. Launched the boat and motored to the first good spot.

Had rods rigged with LC-13, class V sinking and a floating line. Tried several of the usual Shad hang outs. Nothing...

Tried trolling with the LC-13... Still skunked except fer one timber trout that ran 1/2 way cross the river. Decided to check the water temp. It was 42 degrees F (measured). Coldest water I've ever
seen on the Ogeechee. Gonna wait til the water gets up to 50 degrees before I try the Shad again.

Bill, only thing you missed was a cold boat ride and a barley pop or two.

Still Shadless in '10

...but a day out on the water, how bad can that be? Hopefully you'll have better luck on your next outing. We're looking for a warming tend over the next few days, that should help.
