    We fished west side south to north of Linwood in 14 to 16 fow and caught seven keepers and 8 shorts and a couple farm animals and a large pike that really messed up our lines. All on flicker shads.

    Fished straight out of Linwood today...18-21 FOW.
    Crawlers out 25-30' with 1oz inlines. Purple & chartreuse seemed to be the color of choice.
    Two man limit in about 4hours. Mix of 16"-21"ers with 3 throwbacks....plus a catfish and approx a 10# sheephead.

    We fished straight out of Linwood today near the cigar. we used flicker shad, flicker minnows and bandits at 1.4-1.6. Flickers were out 65-90 and bandits out 50-60. We fished in 21-22 fow. Ended up with 14, most being pretty small, 14-17". We heard about fast limits of big fish in the area the day before but that wasn't us today. When we returned to LBM it seemed that most had gotten between 6-12 today with the size being like ours. Beautiful day to be on the water.

    East side 2 man limit in 3hrs. Once we got on the fish it was hard to keep all lines in the water at once. Thats the way we like it
