Well, after a MISERABLE 4 hours (misersabe only because the fish weren't where we were looking) on the lake yesterday, my friend Gerald & I quit at noon with only 1 keeper boated! The wind kept us away from some spots I wanted to hit. Oh well, it was a nice day with a good friend and any day fishin is a good day! THEN! Jason Burton had an afternoon trip with 2 returning clients & a friend of theirs so they met up at the L. P. Resort around 1 & set out. Jason's 21' Triton handles ruff water much better than my little Stratos so he was able to really work some of the spots I had to bypass. THEY HIT PAYDIRT!! Fishing brushpiles in 18-25 fow, they quit at sunset with 56 for the cleaning table & 20+ were in the 1 1/2 pound plus range. Here are a few pictures of the guys & catch. It was too dark to get a shot of the total catch.
All fish came on jigs with about half on Pepop's Ketchnz Karrot & the rest fell for various Thermocline plastic baits.

If you ever wanted to fish Lake Palestine but you were unsure of your chances on a NEW lake, right now is a GREAT time to book a trip with Jason Burton. He has a reduced rate for half day trips right now and can fish mornings and/or afternoon's on Thursday & Friday and most any afternoon the rest of the week. He also will sell you a Gift Certificate at the reduced rate and you can use it anytime in the 12 months following the purchase. You can reach Jason through his web site. There is a link to it at the bottom of my signature. He's a great guy to fish with!
