In Reply to: Bream, Shellcracker Tournament posted by Alex on May 03, 2004 at 07:06:02:
I fished the Tournament with Alex, we came in second with 50 fish at 21.94 pounds, biggest fish was a 0.86 shellcracker. Our bite was slow until ~11:00 when the sun decided to appear, then it picked up. We fished the islands around Alred's marina. Most of our fish were bluegill, Alex had more shellcrackers. We fished anywhere from 1-6' feet deep, but most came from 1-4 feet. I had problems just like Alex locating them the previuos weeekend. We used bettlespins to locate them, then slowed down with crickets.
I cleaned 50 bream and only 4 had egss, the other 46 were males which explains the smaller than expected total bag weights. I could not find any big females, they must be close, but in deeper water. Good Luck!!
