Fished from first light to 8:30am on east side of lake were my family's place is since I can't launch the boat. Was fortunate to have a wind coming from southwest pushing some shad up to the shore. Started with big pencil popper then a Zara spook and had a few swirls and miss before sunup. Chunked that lure for a while at a few different spots. Switched to a char rod runner with white tail and chunked it the top of a rock jetti that was now partially submerged into 15-25 ft of water and had a big one slam it first throw. Probably one of the bigger ones I've ever hooked. Fought for a few minutes and got close to shore when it was able to wrap itself in some brush and I had to break it off even after wading in the water..........while raining. tied on another road runner and got another bite, but then they were off. Lots of guide boats nearby all behaving nicely. Looked like they were all doing well. Lots of shad shallow on the banks. Could see ducks and gar chasing them around. GoIng to put on some heavier line to try and turn them quicker so I don't get man handled again.

Sounds like you found a good spot.  Good luck tomorrow.  I wish I could get out there somehow.

Was the water muddy there? I am interested to see if the lake is clearing up.

I'm going to try from the bank tomorrow.
While bank fishing back in 2007 I caught(almost) a monster green carp on a rattletrap. It jumped 3 times before opening BOTH split rings. She outta be even bigger this time. [biggrin]

It's a little muddy, but seems to be clearing up. Went two weeks ago and was really muddy one day and next day very clear so just depends on how much water water is coming in. I could see guide boats on the east banks from the damn all the way to railroad bridge. I've cruised this east shoreline for 15+ years. Seemed like most were anchored on structure like humps and drop off's and holes. No doubt the shad are there and shallow, but don't seem to be reacting to topwater as well although I didn't get to try at sunset.
