5/7 AM we had Lou, Al, John, Drew, Chuck and Larry. Got bait and set up on loads of bait and nice reads fish. Nothing on chunks but the livies were getting played with quite a bit. 1 run off and a few misses and that was that. Made a move and saw scattered fish so we threw the plugs in. Got 1 nice and a short finally. Set up with chunks in that area and again fish just playing with the live ones and just 1 run off. Nothing on the chunks... The guys stayed at the rail all day, but they weren't rewarded for there efforts. Frustrating morning for sure, another day of seeing loads of fish, but can't get em to eat.
5/7 PM we had Drew, Peter, Mike, Kevin and Evan. Went back to the spot from the am and within minutes we have a beauty on with a chunk. And that was it. Made a couple moves west on some nice marks, but again nothing. So we put the plugs in. Got a call from Capt Nelson who said he was starting to pick. Trolled our way to him and started to catch. Switched from the plugs to the wire with shads and started catching good. But just like that it stopped. Fish were absolutely loaded over here tonight. It's ashame we couldn't get more. Ended up with 6, 15-20lb fish and one lost, for the night.
