Welcome back Ashley. The video is great. Those fish were real hogs. I know you and Kent are glad to see Travis fill up.

Great fish!!!! Looks like the fight was awesome too. I thought one of them was going to jerk the rod out of her hand.

Just curious, were y'all fishing off the drop-off of the first slope or around brush piles? Looked like fairly deep water.

Sup Ash?! Long time no see. Nice video, although I feel like I should've been rolling or something to be able to fully enjoy the music ahaha. Apparently Travis has some big'uns too, looks like y'all had a great day. And traded the kayaks for a boat? Very nice!

Peyton, bro, whats up with your honey boo boo thing???/ LOL Wait...I'm ashamed I know who that is. I can't stop starring at it's ridiculousness. It fits you though.
But yea, I see you're still annoying everyone - you are at 16,220 posts.
ha
We still got a yak or two laying around. Kent goes out every now and then, but I don't. I'm all about that boat lyfe. It relaxes me. I lost your number when my phone took a drink last summer. So if you still got mine, text me so I can add you. If not, I'll survive. After all, you're a crummy human anyways. XO

It is very good to see the lake filled up. A blessing in many ways. The fish are hanging out in deep water and shallow. I think they are confused and trying to figure out the fluctuation in the lake levels every other week with all the rain. Each time we have went out, it's like 3 feet higher than last time, then it's two feet lower. And that pattern continues. And then I get confused. It's been a lot of work to find them each outing.

It's good to see everyone! Thank you all for the comments. I hope the great fishing continues on the lake and to post more for everyone as we keep learning and exploring.

Ashley what a great pleasure to see you posting again! Don't be a stranger (especially with cool videos like that one)!

Those were some nice fat healthy gills you guys were catching. Looks like a great day of fishing!

Love it! Thanks for taking the time to produce the video, Ashley. Nothing like a beautiful day on the lake chasing sunnies!

Thank you everyone!
The baits used were worms and a variety of homemade jigs that we tied.
