I fished this morning and the deep bite is still working but the fish are fairly stubborn. From 7:30 to 8:30 the fish were postured for both vertical and hortizonal presentations. I could not get the swimbait to work so I just stayed with the vertical baits (4" grub and ice jig). Dropping the 4" grub worked the best and triggering a bite on the initial drop was key. If you had to work the bait in front of their nose they would ignore it most times. Another technique that worked was dropping the grub to the bottom and slow crank it up through the fish. The ice jig worked best if the fish where within a few feet of the bottom. There was a light sprinkle from time to time, then about 10AM the constant drizzle started and I headed in. WT about 45. Caught about 20 with approx 8 keepers. Had one decent LM and the rest were K's. Also, finding shad is a challenge for me and I am not really sure where to look. I scouted a few creeks one afternoon and did not find any nice schools of shad.
