Been having to work to get big but its been fun. Tuesday was by far the toughest. Yesterday was great on size and numbers were better today. Literally have 2 techniques working and any deviation for me ends up with no bites. Got a couple of spots holding fish and looks like the shad are finally moving up. They had been suspending in 10-15` with no fish around them. Finally started seeing some surface activity up close but top water still is dead. Thinking its about to bust loose though. Got 5 more days to chase them around though. Weather is great and absolutely no crowds at all.

I think they are getting fitted for feed bags and its about to be great. The amount if shad that moved up shallow was huge today. You could not even get sand bass bites hardly either the last few days. Deep water was barren and shallow was dead. Reminded me of postspawn.

It's almost that time!! I think I'll be targeting the 6-10 ft range, pitching jigs tomorrow. Maybe I'll see you out there...

All joking aside I have only had 1 jig bite in 4 days and I have thrown one a lot. Also it seems 5` or less is the deal for me.

I'm going to be out there tomorrow too to try some shallow stuff up on the north end of both sides. Maybe it'll work out, maybe not but it sure beats working.

I don't doubt it. Last week, most of the better fish I caught were on 5" swimbaits.

Just got in from 4 days at Fork, I experienced pretty much the same thing as we caught 4 in 4 days. Like fishing in the dead sea,bazillion baitfish moving up,in,and on a few humps, but no fish around them. the 4 we caught were on weightless watermelon flukes around grass and they were pretty much on the bank

Thanks for the tips! I was out there Monday for the first time, and only hit one dink. Was sounding bass at 6-10 suspending, but not biting. Good to see the shad are about to move up, that hits my favorite type of fishing! I will catch ya`ll out there on Saturday!

Just hang in there. It will get better. Everyone I talked to is struggling. I had to put down the jig and junk fish a bit till I lucked on what seems to be how they want to bite.

I agree with Mark, the fishing should start heating up very soon. Lots of baitfish have moved onto the flats and the bass seem to be getting a bit more active. In a week or two the bite should be much more consistent with some topwater mixed in! The best days will probably be the cloudy rainy ones when the fish will be chasing up shallow all day long...those are my favorite this time of year!
