I took my son out for a few hours scouting today. We only caught 38 keepers so I guess it did slow down a bit with this front.

He just turned 4 back in March and has probably caught more fish this year than most guys on this board. His big fish today went just over 9 lbs. He lost another that was probably close to 15 lbs. The little #6 treble hook just didn't find a sweet spot and pulled loose near the boat.

I am going to hit Lavon today. Any advise as to catching some Shad? I usually go first light and load up at the ramp but since we couldn't go until after lunch I don't know if I will be able to get any shad. Any help would be appreciated.

You never know until you throw! I would think there would be more shad late in the day as the water warms up. Send us a report as I'm going in the morning.

Got there at 2:00 PM. Shad tough to come by at that hour of the day but I was able to scratch a few together and the fishing was great. Drifting in 12-15 feet of water but only fishing about 6 ft. deep. Don't know how many we caught but they were all thrown back for someone else to catch another day. Biggest about 5 lbs.

75 fish limit of blues and channel cats today plus 9 hybrids and 20 sandbass. Not too bad for a cold front in May.
