Fished the Hwy 31 bridge Saturday afternoon/evening with minimal results. Had my two girls with me so serious fishing was hard to get a cast in. The balls of shad were moving through under the bridge and the fish were busting on them big time. They were pulling some water and current was present around the pilings. I thought I had it made. Turned out to be skip jacks about 10-12" My girls slayed the buggers with minnows 3' under a bobber. I caught one crappie on a white stump jumper with a 2" white curlie tailed grub, fish was 10" and starting to get some gerth to it(not one of those skinny summer fish). Sure hope this weather changes that pattern. There were plenty of small bream present as well. They were absolutely stuffed and didn't look like they could hold another bite.
