I got a late start (9 am) and couldn't catch any shad. I tried cast-netting some in the cove at Holiday Marina with no luck. Can you normally catch em there? Where do I need to be looking for bait?
My dad and I ended up just trolling around the damn and around the point just to the south of Sun Point. I'm not sure the name of that point but it makes a nice drop from 17 down to 35. We had our best luck there. We ended up catching nothing but about 3 short stripers, 1 sand bass, and one 18 inch hybrid that we tossed back. We fished till about noon and had to get back.
A slow day but there was a nice breeze to combat the heat, the boat ran good and it was nice to get out there with my dad.
