Thanks for the update Merv. Was wondering if the fish has moved in down there yet

There is tons of bait and whitebass or hybrid in the creek channel by the little island between 7points and Vivrette. I couldn't catch any but they r there. They were in about 15 fow. Water was very stained in Suggs Creek

I feel better knowing I am not the only one getting skunked in there. There is so much bait/fish my graph wouldn’t show bottom.

4.5 is frustrating at times with all the bait and no fish too. Though have been catching some whites trolling A rigs out there

Why do the Shad move into the creeks when it gets colder? I never understood what happens and why.

Seems they can run up to warmer banks during the day before the deep freeze as I have noticed this on Ky . Lake

I do not recommend fishing with Billy Flatt at all. That’s all I’ll say at this time.

Now that I've told everything, I expect to see lots of reports about monster catches!
Hey Merv. Curious, do you usually use any additional weights with those? Or are those heads already weighted? If so, how heavy are they?

The heads are not weighted nor do I add weight .
What I do is use different weight jig heads on the swimbaits. I make my own jigheads, using mustad hooks from a 1/0 to a 3/0 anywhere from 3/16th oz up to 1/2 oz.
I'll have out 4-6 Arigs with four different weight jiginheads, all set at 80 feet back. Whichever rig gets hit the most is usually the depth the fish are holding at that day.
And that can be anywhere from 15-30 feet.

I can personally attest that when Merv has weight and depth and bait nailed down, its almost comical the amount of fish he boats. Last year on different trips i was either in front, on the side or behind him, trolling A-rigs....same speed, same area and he would boat 4-5 fish to my one at least. Lol. I dont have line counter reels so if i was a few feet off high or low that was making the difference. I just stood in my boat, little tear in my eye every time i heard him holler "fish on" and i look at my rods and they were just as still as could be. Lol.

That was probably because you had skillet on the boat with you.
That's an albatross for sure!
