Still a little early for 'em round here. WTH, ain't been able to splash the boat or wet a line in a long while. Fished upstream of the Hwy 301 Bridge.

Tried several spots fer some Shad and few for Crappie. Didn't get a bite...
Weather was nice, sunny mid 50s water was cold, upper 40s.

Hope this years Shad run is better than the last two. Last year was the first time in @ 25 years that I didn't catch a Shad. Year before I managed to catch three.

Still beats the hell outta work...

Tom, I've never fished that section of The River (dammit)...
There are a couple ramps near there.

If your down this way on Sundays or Mondays let me know. Garrett doesn't have classes on Mondays and can tend the store 8-)
We'll find a place to park your truck. I'll bring the boat and fishin' gear
