Water temp is 77 and the shad hatch is ridiculous: mad: I have given up fishing shallow and I am trolling. Deep and fast, (4-5 colors of lead and 2.5 to 2.8 mph). Yesterday started out slow but we ended up with 25 eye's and kept a couple for dinner. Haven't caught a wiper now in about a month but every once in a while I see few busting on the surface. Crappie are suspended deep on single trees and in between humps in 20 feet. They are still biting, I shot the **** with two guys cleaning a limit at the fish clean station that were hanging minnows deep.
