Hit up the north side of grapvine today early - decided to bank it instead of boat or kayak since wind was going to be brutal. Must of hooked over 30+ whites in about 1hr with my father and son - it was an absolute blast. Also got my 2year old daughter in on some fish (though her attention span was a bit short - she had a blast catching her first fish). A lot of smalls but a good number were keepers - we threw back anything under 13" as I wasn't looking to fill the freezer - just enough for lunch.

We then went to get some shad(had been using artificial)... And my first two throws were to far out... Caught no shad but got a 17in bass and two carp - all released safely. Had to throw the net at the shore (2-6") to catch shad - couldn't see them due to how rough the water was from the wind. My son had a blast seeing the shad swim against the net.

We had a number of people (both on shore and from boats nearby) catching bass mixed in with the whites. Saw one guy drag in what was easily a double digit bass that put up a spectacular fight.

I banked it around Oak Grove using live shad. Hooked into a nice largemouth, probably 3 or 4 pounds, snapped my 6 lb test as I reached down to pull him out of the water. It was pretty slow overall though, a couple small sandies with one keeper and a channel cat.

Nice job Searsay.

I'm hoping to get out to Grapevine one day this week after work.

I love this method, catching shad and tossing them out under a slip bobber right at dawn. It was a fish on every cast this morning, sandies, crappie, large mouth, yellow bass and a couple channel cats.
