Great report
Glad you'll are doing so well. I put out about 50 jugs late last Saturday starting at Babin cut going south. I was baiting with blood and cut bait. I caught 5 on one run and picked them up. I guess I should have stuck with it a little longer. Were are you'll fishing? Were are you getting your bait?

I use Mustad EasyBaiter circle hooks. They work great.

have been fishing between jack millers landing heading south to the high lines coming across the intracoastal canal. have been catching shad in the mouth of bayou plaqemine. if you cant catch them there you can always catch them at the plaquemine locks. good luck
