Friday, 7-1-16, Belinda and I hit the lake @ dawn again.
I put the 1st one in the box and before I could drop again, Belinda swung a pretty slab over the side of the boat
We hit some more summer spots that I hadn't checked yet and some were good, others were bare
We were fishing a large submerged stump that has 3 big limbs coming off it and a small bp under the largest.
Belinda was holding her own till she missed a what she claimed was a solid fish
I instantly got a solid thump
Although she did catch a few more, missing the fish and me catching it got in her head
I steadily put fish in the box while she missed bites.
I didn't rub it in too much....well, maybe I did
We quit at noon with 29 in the box, grabbed another bag of ice and immediately ran to Brain Toliver Ford in Quitman.
While going to the gym, Belinda had spotted an 08' Tundra Limited that she was interested in.
We ended up making a great trade, FJ Cruiser is now gone and drove home with a new to us tow vehicle
Now what I haven't mentioned is that Belinda had been giving me the "Cold Shoulder" treatment since we loaded the boat
While cleaning the fish, Belinda told me she was mad at herself for missing the fish and for letting it affect the rest of her day
And that she was sorry for taking it out on me......
All fish were caught on Tadpoles with the Purple Passion on an orange head working the best
Got Santa Anna Winds forecast for the next week
