I know the ones up the river have TONS of shad to eat, so I feel like getting them to bite might be tough.

I was hoping Bartlett might be clearing up? drove over two canals yesterday running errands finally stopped at one got out and the water in the canals from Bartlett is still just absolutely dark brown!!

The lake is still dingy but the spawning spots I know of should be working for them.  Best thing I think for the spawn is the lake is not falling enough to ruin nests, and shouldn't be through this spawn if the current horseshoe release stays the same until it mostly empty.  The incoming warm water from horseshoe is not cooling the Bartlett temps.  Could be a very good spawn this year.

Ya lake is going to go up now which is a lot better than down, May 11th SRP will start to release water from Saguaro for he tubers so will be interesting how things balance out.

Haven't been out there in over a month. Getting a new motor put in my truck, so I haven't been able to pull the boat anywhere!

Yup, new motor. I was a victim of Chevy's Active Fuel Management (AFM) and my 6th cylinder lifter got stuck which ultimately resulted in the push rod getting bent and destroying the lifter (which was my fault for driving it with a stuck lifter). Additionally, the spark plugs in cylinder 6 and 1 had oil on them, and cylinder 7 was burning the plugs.

A new motor installed was about $1200 more than to repair/rebuild my current motor, so I went that route. AFM system had to be replaced, which included a new VLOM, new high pressure oil pump, new lifters, new rods, and potentially a new camshaft. New motor doesn't have AFM so I'll always run with all 8 cylinders and it comes with a 100k mile/3 year warranty on all long block parts.

No, not really new. It's a 2011 with 129,000 miles. I've had it about 6 years now.
