Tried under O'neal bridge with no luck. Caught 4 or 5 small salt water stripe at the mouth of Cypress Creek casting small jigs upstream and letting them get down by the time they were next to the drop off near the mouth of the creek. All were under a pound.
In the back end of the barge harbor (Fuzzy's Feeds used to be there) I managed several drum, a LMB about 3 or 3.5 pounds, lots of small yellow stripe and a coule of small white bass. The small shad minnows were THICK!
Last place was at the north end of where the old train lift bridge used to be. First cast caught one crappie about a pound. Nothing after about 20 more casts.
Fished the above areas from about 1pm until 3pm.
On the way home stopped below Wheeler dam. Only saw one boat in the tailraces and lots of shad minnows running the banks, but nothing seemed to be hitting. Didn't stay long and left for home about 20 minutes before dark.
Good luck and good fishin'
