I caught between 30 and 35 spotted bass this morning on crawly bottoms. They weighed between 1 and 3.5 lbs with most being 2.25 lbs. They have really strapped on the old feed bag because they were all looked like they would bust wide open. I also caught a few small stripers in the 3-6 lb range as well as a couple of channel catfish (2 & 3 pounds). I kept the catfish for some fillets and released everything else. I caught all of these fish in eddy water just out of the main current. I saw several boats and bank fishermen catching some sauger but none for me today.
Yellowtails(threadfin shad) still are not running along the south bank wall but plenty of crawly bottoms are running, as long as they don't generate at full capacity. I didn't check downstream near the boat ramp to see if yellowtails were schooling there. Good Luck!
