  • Another day on the river

    Air: 65-90
    Water: 65-74, clear to stained
    Wind: SW 10-15

    In a nutshell, I caught every where I fished today, but the aquia was the best area for me. I caught fish pretty much all day on both tides. The bait of the day was a chatterbait with all but 1 of my bites, and all of my caught fish coming on it. Most of my fish were caught in the grass 2-4 feet deep with some fish coming off docks as well. All but one of my better bites were in the grass, including 15 or so fish on one spot. The fish were punishing the bait, but either from behind or the side. This leads to missing and losing some fish, because your bait either "disappears" or swims sideways. Fortunately this only cost me one solid bite, a 3-3.5lber that came off boatside. I would guess i caught 30ish fish and dropped another 5-10. I finished out with 15-8 for the day and 5-0 kicker. This is my third straight trip with a 5+, can't complain about that.

                      We are told that we shouldn't judge all Muslims by the actions of an extreme few. Why can't we offer millions of law-abiding American gun owners the same consideration?

                        G, no nets needed, even flipped the 5lber! Also after 4 years of fishing solo I have mastered the art of the self-timer!! a lean post, plano box on the back deck make a great camera stand!

                          By the way, these self photos prove that my camera is not the issue, user error gave us blurry pictures for the VAO event!
