Got out today with my dad had to break ice to launch the boat, We started heading up south fork to find warmer water and baitfish, I found a school of shad that was prolly 50 yrds long by about 15 yrds wide and around 6ft thick, I lowered the aquaview to take a look at em, they all seemed to be around 4 inchs, They were in 29fow, So we started jiggn, My dad hooked up with one on a Vibee it was right at 22 inchs and weight 3.47 at the time it was pulled out of the water, at the truck it weighed 3.35, I ended up going to 2 for 3 the other shook loose around 8ft below the boat.. one being 21 3.35lb. and the other 17.5 1.98lb and it was a male the bigger one had 6 shad in her belly, one was pretty close to being fresh the other were almost gone, All fish came between 29 and 26 fow under a giant school of shad, 3/8s vibees Lake had some ice in bays and some on mainlake but was blowing around, made it hard to spud a path to launch the boat.

Thanks for the update.  Sounds like you had a good day all in all.  I'm starting to think about unwinterizing my boat and heading out.  Don't know if we'll ever see ice this season.  Temps in the 40's thru next week.  Angry

Good to know.  Talked to a friend who's slaying bass on Portage with vib-es from his boat.  Thinking I'm going to get my boat out next week.  I'm off work it looks like.  Is the water up enough at Leesville to launch my bass boat at Clows?  I sold my jon boat and trolling motor.  Stupid mistake, I know!  Grin

I dont believe clows is open in the winter, walkin around the banks and fishing and what not i noticed their ramp isnt even in the water, the main public ramp however is still usable and has very deep water to launch a boat no problems at all launching even with the water at winter pool.. take u big boat use your trolling motor u dont have to go far Wink

Cool!  When this ice from the weekend is back off, I'll go down and give it a try.  Doesn't look like this cold snap's going to last.  Angry
