I started out Sunday morning up at Birch. I had not been there yet this year so while I had a clear day I decided to go scout it out. I arrived at dalight and was on the lake and fishing very early. An hour and a half later I was still fishing but not catching. At 8:30 I decided to pack up and go back to Skiatook to see if those big fish were still where I left them on Saturday. I went to the spot where I had left a waypoint on my GPS, threw a bouy when I saw the fish were still there and dropped the anchor. I put out a down line and before I could reach for the second rod I had a six pounder slam that first shad. I had constant fish on, doubles and triples at times. I didn't have anybody to help me, It was just Mandy, my border collie, and me this morning. She gets excited but she wont even try to net a fish. I'm glad I shifted gears and went to Skiatook. I've got clients Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday this week.
