Fought the wind to see if we could find some catfish. Finally found shad in the main river channel about 25ft deep in 45ft of water. Fished with shad, chicken liver and night crawlers. Didn't catch a thing drifting the flats. Put out some jug lines in a cove and caught 7 or 8 2-4lb blue cats. Great for the table and nice to get out on the lake for the first time of the year.
