    Re: Discovery/Miller Area 4/27/2018

    I'm going to be trying from shore at Miller this afternoon. Hoping I can get into them.
    Taking off and flying is easy, it's the landings that will kill you.

    Oh Yeah!...Salmon!...Everything else is just practice.

    Discovery/Miller Area 4/27/2018

    Made it back out plunking for shad from the boat on Friday. The bite was slow, but we managed to get seven shad to the boat, while losing one and had four missed hits.

    We started above the I Street Bridge, where the current was really slow, even on the outgoing tide. In 8 feet of water, we needed less than one ounce to stay on the bottom. In fact, I was not able to back bounce one ounce very far behind the boat. After two fish, we moved below Miller Park in 16 feet of water.

    We managed one shad in our new spot, and headed back to the original area. Out in the middle of the river the current was really fast, and we picked up two fish. We moved in, and landed several more. We even had one lost fish above Discovery Park across from the restaurants.

    Water Temperature: 64 degrees
    Weather: Windy, partially cloudy
    Lure: Dick Nite spoons and small 1 inch grubs
    Depth: 8 and 16 feet
    Tide: mostly outgoing, caught very start of incoming
    River Level at I Street bridge: 7 feet
    Visibility: about 2.5 feet, clear

    My buddy with an early morning shad
