I went to Joe Pool for a few minutes yesterday morning and the bluegill bite was booming. I only had a couple of hours because my wife's car was in the shop and she wanted mine to go to the beauty shop. The bluegill were in the edge of the channel again near a grass bed. The odd thing was they were all bigger fish. I usually catch a mix of bigger fish and small fry, but these were all good sized - at least for North Texas. They were suspended at about 5 feet. I ran out of worms about the time I had to go, but I tried a couple of small balls of the sweet carp bait on the ultralight rig. I caught a couple of sunfish right away. The carp and buffalo were not biting, or I would not have dared bait the #8 hook with dough bait. The carp can really destroy the ultralight rig.
Lynn Creek Marina installed a decorative aerator beside the Oasis restaurant which has completely destroyed the rough fish fishery in front of the dock. The carp and buffalo are drawn to the fountain in the no-fishing area away from the dock.
The bust was this morning. I went to Chisholm Park to fish for stocked trout. The wind was howling at 20 gusting to 25. I spent an hour without a bite, and gave up. I came home and roasted my turkey. It looks great.
