This not an exciting report but just a little overview of my trip Saturday night. I’m pretty thick skinned so poking fun at my lack of success is all good. We launched out of PB2 about 5:30 PM and went searching for shad with our electronics. We hit several coves but always seemed to find them a bit too deep for an effective capture by using a cast net. An hour of casting yielded one big shad. We kind of goofed around some points trying for a bonus white bass until setting up for the evening. The waves created by the flotilla coming out of party cove was somewhere between spectacular and scary. We regained our sanity and moved into a cove with a flat about 20 feet deep and anchored the boat. We tossed out night crawlers, shrimp, previously frozen cut shad, and BeeJay. By 10:00 PM we had failed to get bit. We pulled in the rods and headed to a small cove/big cut off the main lake with wood in the back and shelf rock on one side. We fished until 12:15 AM and I caught two channels running about 1.5 lbs each on the cut shad. One one the fresh shad and one on the previously frozen shad. I missed one bite and the shad. No other bites on any of the baits. We again packed up the rod and headed to the main lake bluffs and anchored up in about 22 feet of water off a shall point that extended out into a flat. We once again set out our ties with cut shad and night crawlers. I missed one good bite that saw the fish make a strong run but in my old age I have a bit of trouble seeing in the dark and failed to get the rod out of the holder in time to set the hook. No other bites and we headed in at 2:30 AM. I might mention that while we were out by the main lake bluffs there was a noticeable strong current headed towards the dam. Once back at the ramp our trailer lights went out as we were pulling the boat out. We ended up taking out the horn and radio fuses from the truck to replace the blown trailer fuse. (Yes, it blew a second fuse.). I finally got back home at 6:30 AM this morning. So in summary, pretty meager results but great company and a beautiful evening.
