Fished from 2:00pm till 0-dark-thirty. Trolled a white and chartruse Clouser, and a couple of wollybuggers, no hits. Saw lots of Shad on the fishfinder. They were 10-20 feet deep. Saw more larger fish around 35 *feet deep. As it begin to get dark I saw a few trout swirlling the surface chasing the shad, threw the line at them , nothing. I guess I spooked them.

fished my way under and around the bridge, the depth was more than 300 feet there, as it went off the scale of my fishin buddy...

There were a few of these ducks diving for shad as the shad got closer to the surface.
