We are holding the last Working Man's T of the year on Alan Henry on Friday October 16th. After that, the time changes and we would be starting at dark so we will wait until next year, after this T. $20 entry fee per person with an optional $5 big bass pot. Shotgun start at 6:30 PM and you must be in line with your fish by 10:30PM at the crappie dock. We look forward to seeing you out there. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Only had 7 people show up to fish thte Working Man's T last night, so I guess it is a good thing that they are ending after this for this year. Finally fell in the lake, having an insulin seizure and my partner got me back on board in a quick order and I had already eaten some candy, so I was good to go, just soaking wet in the night. Water temps were 70 to 70 degreesm si wasb;t tii badm but it was still cold. John Thompson won it with 3 fish taht weighed 8 lbs even. His big fish was 2-14 and he had 3 cookie cutter fish, all on a buzzbait, he reported. A new fisherman joined us and got 2nd place and big bass. Kelly King caught a 3-8 black on a squarebill. Said his 3 fish came on worms and the afrementioned square bukkm a JVD 2,0, THANKS to everyone for their concern and my partner, Bodie, who got me back in the boat. Only 4 people weighed fish, but most turned their 2 fish back when they saw 3 fish weighed. THANKS TO EVERYONE for fishing this year. Got to meet a bunch of nice people and got to fish with some great and good anglers. Until next year in April, Thanks again. OH, I am in the process of getting the DVD together, working on one tape to make it work better, as it is all snowy, so hopeully, that will be available soon. I am giong for a total price of $70 for the DVD and/or CD, including tax. I will try to get it marketed at Acadeny, Gander Mountain and a few other places, maybe even Walmart here in Lubbock, or you can contact me, once I annouce that it is done. Thanks in advance. This DVD will have the lake at 20, 30, 42 and 53' depths, both shores as far as I coudl drive the boat at those depths. Shows a LOT of detail that you cannot get anywhere else. Have a good oene. Respectfully, Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Thank God your ok. That must have been scary for both of you. That's getting too close. That lake is deep everywhere and there is no standing up when your in the water. Even the bank is too steep for climbing out in most areas. I think we all need to start fishing lake okeechobee florida for safety reasons.
You boys that are married need a good reason to go so there it is Safety.

Thanks jafish. I should have been wearing my PFD, but I was not, as usual. As you say, that lake is steep banked and I couldn't touch bottom, but I can swim a little bit, but I didn't want to lose my custom made rod and reel that I was fishing with, so I was pushing it over my head swimming up. My partner said he counted to 5 and was starting to take things out of his pockets before he saw me surface, but it could have been a bad event, at night, as someone drowned out there 3 weeks ago. GOD was with me and I thank HIM for that, but it was a nice cool dip when it was pretty chilly. LOL. I can laugh at it, but it could have been serious. Just my luck that I DO know how to swim a little bit, too. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
