Today I had my Bud's, Ronny and Howard, out on Lake Somerville for the morning. I needed some fish for my freezer and they never want to keep any for themselves anyway. They were surprised at how far we had to back into the lake to launch and load the boat. The lake is finally starting down a little, with the gates open, and the creeks crested and starting down. I hope everyone on the holiday weekend is safe and courteous at the boat ramp, since loading and unloading will be slow. Remember too, there are barbeque pits and picnic tables under water around the parks.
I had located some fish yesterday ( 74 cats), since they have been moving with the water level changes, and we returned to the area today. They fish were still hungry
today. We managed to boat 65 nice cats, up to 7#, for the morning. That should put some figs on the shelf for me, since I trade a friend fish for figs to make preserves. I go thru fig preserves about as fast as I do Noonday Onions.
All fish caught using corks in 7-8 foot water, on CJ's Crawdad punch bait.
