Took advantage of the lack of rain this morning. Over slept as usual, but loaded up the kayak and headed up to Lake Somerville to check out the upper Yegua Creek a bit past 6:30am. The water was flowing and the carp and gar were exploding everywhere you looked. I wasn't expecting a very productive trip. I just wanted to get out since I haven't really had an opportunity to head out, and every weekend has been plagued with rain. Weekdays are tough to get out due to work, so I take every opportunity I can take. The fishing was productive, tons of small bass, crappie, and white bass, needle nose gar, and a HUGE CATFISH that I caught while drifting a small jig. Catfish slipped off the jig before I could land the beast and take it's picture. Fished for about 4 hours and headed back home to Cypress. I'd be out there again tomorrow, but with rains headed our way, I think I'll sit tomorrow out and maybe hit the ponds around here with the fly rod.
