With the weather forecast for today I figured the lure bite would be tough today so I caught a few shad yesterday just to be on the safe side. We started out fishing slabs and it was not working so I threw out the anchor and we caught all the box fish we wanted up to 19″. We left those fish to go look for a few bigger ones and never found anything but a few more fish. I sure am glad I had that bait this morning. We need it to get cold again to catch them on lures.
