I fished from about 10:00 to 6. Fished the East Side right by the fence. (Gate side). We were standing on the four or five exposed rocks right by the fence. We caught about 30 hybrids and 5-10 whites. Biggest Hybrid was 7-9 lbs (didn/t have a scale). We were fishing with live shad. One of the guys we were fishing with went on the West side right by the fence and wore the hybrids out on a 1/4 jig with a smallish 3 inch deal like a slider drifting it on the bottom with the current.. Said he caught about 30, but I think that was an exageration at least a little, but probably at least 20. When I got over there when I was leaving he had on white and pink, but not sure what he fished with the rest of the time. So all in all we caught about 50- 60 hybrids between the shad and jig fishing.

The fishing was not steady. They would move in, you would catch 3 or 4 fish, then they would move out. Longest stretch without a fish was probably an hour.

Topwater bite is really close. I would say by Wed with warm weather it should be on. They were hitting some shad that were basically on top because they would hang up on the weighted slip bobbers we were using in the wind, so they were basically in the first foot or so of the water colum and they were getting bit. 4-8 feet down on a slip bobber.lr 8 feed
