Took a while to find a spot to fish this morning due to the fog. Fished until 1130 and managed 14. One blue and 13 channels...biggest channel went 4 lbs. Don't have a temp or depth report as the new Helix just arrived today and have not installed it yet. Water was kinda brown but not too bad of shape. Quite a few boats out today. Estimating I was in 8 FOW by the anchor line.

Turtles move in at 9:30, fish quite biting. Channel cats were 13 to 17inches. bait was chicken liver.

Thanks for the report ee1 it is about that time of the
year when the shad run the banks at day break in their
annual spawn. the catfish hit the bulk heads in massive
numbers to feed on the shad. If you are there at daybreak
you can usually limit out in a short time but once the sun
gets up the shad leave and goes back to deeper water
about 10 am most days.

Yes sir, 22 channels yesterday morning despite the wind. Sorry no pics this time. Had to hug east shorelines cause of the wind.

I don't remember the turtles being so bad in years past. Seems now every year they get worse.

Instead of killing them or letting them go, I've been relocating them to a creek by mablebrook el sh.
This is the worst year I"ve seen for turtles.
