Went out with Crappie Bait and our esteemed Mr Paty on Lewisville. It was worth every bit for the knowledge we learned today. We didn't catch as many as we would have liked but the education more than made up for it! We fished a bunch of brush piles and gained more knowledge than my little brain could handle.
This isn't really a fishing report as much as a ringing endorsement of Mr Paty and his teaching! Some of the highlights of the knowledge gained by me:
- reading/interpreting electronics
- identifying and understanding what you're seeing
- brush pile placement and tactics for building
- boat positioning
The first two were the biggest for me. I have to adapt my tactics for my non-fishing boat but I'm building my notes. In the interim, if you're wanting to learn how to use your tools better, then an education trip with Mr Paty is well worth it.
As a side note the bonus from the trip was meeting Crappie Bait (as well as Mr Paty) and made a new friend to go fishing with. The three of us shared a bunch of laughs and had a blast fishing together no matter the number of fish caught! Just another day to enjoy being outdoors and the feeedom to fish!
