Lake Athens, 1:15 or so during the eclipse.
Report: I had a fish on my first cast that fell off . . . small and chasing shad. I could see them in the 4 ft. water around the boat house. Then, a few casts later, I caught one of these small schoolers.
Then, I heard some commotion on the opposite side so I went over and pitched right to the area it had come up, got it hooked up. My drag was set too low so it pulled me into the pads but I got her out.
I'd say 2.5 lbs. and a nice dark saddle on a healthy fish. They are really feeding up on shad almost all day long. It's fun to watch them chase the shad in shallow water . . . you can see the "arrow point" as they move through the water.
Conclusion: fish all future eclipses. Ha! Brad
