Konz and I got out to Pickens about 6:50 with a ton of shrimp and high hopes. Perfect weather, perfect time, etc. We got out there and there were a few already fishing. Right as we were getting set up, a guy pulled in a ~18" sheepie. Unfortunately, that was the last keeper we saw (2 undersized were caught), so we left. However, the thing that finally pushed us into leaving were the crowds coming. With half the end of the pier open, some dude parked on top of my rod, turned 45* right, cast over it, and then jerked it into my line. He gave me a look like, "Get the heck outta my way." We were tired of Pickens anyway, so we were on the move. :banghead

Started stopping at beach spots around 11:00. The water was the muddiest that Ray or I had ever seen, so Plan B was out. The only way to describe it would be like watching a massive diarrhea dump get flushed down the toilet :sick

Plan C was Bob Sikes on the GB side. There were about 10 people there and everyone said there were no bites since the early AM. We proved that true and enjoyed the sun until about 1:30. 61* and sun was nice, but the chick in a bikini sunbathing on the bridge must have Spring Fever something fierce.

Only a couple nibbles the entire day, but it was a nice day. Better luck next time.

letsgofishin (1/18/2010)I wished I had seen you guys out there.The sheepies were biting but not on fire.I managed 10 of them.
Which side were you on? We were on GB side and not a single person on that entire side (I walked the whole thing) had a bite at any time during the day. I don't think I lost a single shrimp to even a pigfish there.

What time where you there? When I walked down to the end, there was a guy in a camo coat wearing a blue hat (if I remember right) and I said, "Nothing biting today, eh?" The man replied with a nod for "no." That was the only personanywhere nearthe end when I walked it around 1:00pm. We didn't leave Pickens until like 11:00.
