We trolled from Brickhouse bar down past the mouth of Eastern bay. On the way down we saw a small boat land a nice fish within 100 yards of the bay bridge. Started our troll off brickhouse bar, but saw very little bait or fish signs in that area. Had our first knock down north of Bloody but no hook ups. As we trolled across the mouth of eastern bay saw lots of bait and some bigger marks. We managed to pull a nice 35+ incher out of one of the more impressive bait balls. On the way back north, we had another pull down but after a few head shakes nothing. I tried to clean the lines about ever half hour and they were still covered with winter jellies. The 2 knock downs were on large white bucktails with a 9 inch shad. Our only catch was on a white Ches. lures bunker spoon.
