    I can relate to that.

    Glad you got out.

    It has been a difficult winter, hopefully the spring will be better, if it ever gets here.

    Glad you were able to hook something, even the gizzards count to break in 2018! I was out on Saturday and spent the day jigging around Ft. Armistead in the channel. Lots of stacked small schools between 45-55' and some bigger marks, but couldn't get anything to bite. Swapped to trolling for a couple hours but the FF was a ghost town in anything less than 45 FOW. Come on spring!!!

    I didn't have any luck at Brandon Shores either, not far from you. I looked around for warmer water to no avail, but I did find a few schools around the pier. Nothing liked what I was throwing though.

    I almost did Armistead, It's a good place to launch from. I went out in my buddy's boat 3 weeks ago from there and had pretty much the same results you did. Several marks deep in the channel but nothing biting. I'm gonna keep hitting it when ever the weather allows it. Good luck to everyone else

    I have a much closer launch to the power plant than Armistead

    Michael,

    You can definitely head under the bridge.

    Here's the bridge:

    Here's what it looks like after going under the bridge:

    As you head to the shoreline immediately in front of you in the photo above, the river bends to the left. It gets shallow there depending on the tide. But generally you can go upstream after passing under the bridge for about 1/2 of a mile. I checked that on Google Earth.

    There's a lot of water to fish between the bridge and the place where you'll bottom out.

    In fact, John Rentch and I are heading to Beachwood tomorrow morning -- not because reports have been good but just because we want to get out. Anyone is welcome to join us.

    Mark,

    Thursday is 'predicted' to reach 68* (and rumored to reach 72*) which may produce a 'sick' day for me I doubt I can meet tomorrow, but if your Thursday schedule is open, shoot me a PM

    As Mark stated there is a lot of water up above the bridge and on my sonar I was getting about 5-6 feet. That was about three hours before high tide. I saw a video on you tube of a guy at that bridge pulling in lots of pickerel, the video was from a few years ago but I still wanted to check it out. I felt a bump in the water there but it was probably just another shad.
