Hey BudB, we saw you there (198 bridge) and waved but didn't want to crowd you to say "Hi". How did you do? Seemed off on Sunday to me.
I had just gotten on the water when I saw y'all. Yes, the bite was a lot tougher. There were a lot more fishermen in that area. I don't know if that early pounding put the bite off, or if it was all the boat traffic, but with the storm passing close by, I decided to just bail out and try it another day. I was already off the water when the lightning showed up. I had only caught four crappie and a swallow (yes, a cliff swallow that flew into my line and got tangled), when I left. I've been thinking that the time is coming for me to just start getting out when I can on weekday afternoons and skip the weekends, and that time may have arrived.
Last Saturday night, three people in a play boat hit Bird Island at full speed. A woman was ejected from the boat and had to be care flighted. Two jet skis collided on that same day. That boat was still stuck on the island when I was on the lake Tuesday. Be careful if you come to Cedar Creek on a weekend this summer.
