First Day of Spring- March 20th, 2017

      
On this the first Spring day of 2017 I went to Shanklins solo for a day of fishing. It started off cold but warmed up as the day went on. The water coming down from Clayor was dropping which made the bite hard to figure. With water falling and clear the smallie bite was scarce. I did manage to catch 2 smallies on green pumpkin tubes fished deadstick in water six feet deep or deeper that had moving water nearby. The squirrel pick came from as I was walking back to my truck he ran into and outhouse and jumped down the hole to get away from me. It did not take him long to jump back out. I saw only one other person all day long. Anyday you see more bald eagles than people you had a good day.
