took the day off with a buddy and fished above 95 from 700am till 900pm and had an absolute blast today fishing for shad. we probably caught over 100 shad with about 20 big americans mixed in. caught a lot of nice perch for the skillet and a couple of stripers 8lb and 6lb which were caught on 4lb. test. hoping to take the kids down this weekend and try it again from the bank at southern states .
