    Well I was out yesterday from ancarrows to the bridges. Wasn't holding my mouth right only caught two. Watched a boat not too far from us flat wearing them out. He was using shad darts. Could not tell the color from the distance. I used white with pink and chartreuse stripe and chartreuse with eyeballs. Also tried sabiki rigs and gold spoons.

    Keep on them Kahuna, I would imagine it will get better for you. Lots of lamprey going through the fish passage...

    Pretty pedestrian day by normal April standards, but went out today and caught about 20 total. Not a dramatic difference on the fly vs. spinning. Did not catch a single shad on anything but chartreuse. All hickory.

    I did catch a ridiculous amount of white perch, and even more kool, caught like 20 or so juvenile striper, like 8 inches or so. We were fishing between 95 and 14th st.
