We bought a new house in Hockley (no more flooding) and have been packing for days getting ready for the movers. Brenda gave me yesterday morning off so I could fish as long as I was back by noon to continue packing. I fished from 7 to 10 and kept 14. Fished in 3 FOW. Water temp 75. Water in decent shape....not muddy. Several fish were holding eggs.

you did good for a three hour trip. I would
guess the cat are running the bulkheads chasing
the shad that are spawning.

Yes sir, however very few shad in the stomachs. Guess the shad are a bit faster swimming this year.

I guess they may be i sure saw a lot of shad balls on the depth finder yesterday
a long the channel edge in about 10 feet of water and even dropped my marker
on a few thinking they were brush piles . Before i saw they were just shad. Since
my side imaging transducer is on the transom . As soon as i see the image of
what looks like a brush pile i will toss my marker . As some of the schools of shad
were so big and even some came to a point at top. They got the marker dropped
on them as soon as they came in the edge of the come of my transducer.
I know the catfish spawn in warmer water. But not sure if that will be june or july
when they will spawn here on our lake. You may know more on that.
