Me and the wife got skunked also. On Ray Hubbard. I think our problem was bait. I couldn't find any shad. ;

Today was a ZIP day on my Catfish Calendar. That means to the most part, sometimes nothing caught, or very few caught. But then there are occasions you do find a rogue that does not follow in line with the majority. The Calendar concerns the patterns of YellowCats, BlueCats, and Gator Gars.

You might try next (following) two weekends after the 7/8 (of May)- 14/15 & 21/22 are BlueCat (BC) days. The 28/29 weekend are YellowCat (YC) days, of which the Blues also bite pretty well on.

On this year's thread, I think on page 1, I shared some comments/testimonies of those who use it.

Just got on. Does not look good. You may have to work hard. Sometimes though a "rogue" one may cross your path. Best to take a variety of baits. If you have a scope, better plant it right into their midst & hope some don't follow the "norm". I have shared that in my estimate, some 66% to 75% follow the patterns of my Catfish Calendar (as to Blues & Yellows). It seems to be a sort of programmed instinct I refer to as a "roam-feed circuit". In other words, it is as if some sort of switch goes off to make them go roam & feed.

The 2016 Lynn's Catfish Calendar [LCC] thread is here on TFF Catfishing page 1 or 2 currently. May was just posted early morning of the 3rd.

Wish you the Best!
Remember two basic keys, Patience & Endurance!

To find out more of the Calendar & items related, it is best to comb thru the links to the Catfish Calendar threads of each year to pool together the info.

Spent 7 hrs. yesterday on Granger, from the bank. Same spot couple friends and I caught 13 blues and 1 white Monday. Caught 1 blue, had only 3 other bites. Only caught 6 shad.

Same here on the Guadalupe. Bank fished and only ended up with 2 about pound 1/2 each. Only a couple of good hard bites but no hookups on them. Bait would disappear and never see a bite.

I did have good luck on Sunday and a couple of them was full of eggs, looked like ready to spawn
