Finally back on the water! Boat is fixed! Ended up putting a Baystar hydraulic steering set up in and man was it easy to install and the boat steers better than ever.
Saturday was the best and shortest crappie trip I've had as far as fishing goes. Stopped counting around 30. Probably caught close to 50 off of 1 tree! Fished one brush pile in 9 FOW and caught 2. Moved to a tree in 23 FOW and never moved! Left them STILL biting. They wanted an "active" jig. started out just popping it. Then if they didn't bite for a minute I'd just kinda shake it. Then when they stopped I'd jerk it up real quick and let it free fall. When that would quite working id start back popping and so on. The longest I'd go without a bite was digging the jig out with plyers when they inhaled it lol. Man, it was great to be back in my boat. All caught on 1 of my new hand ties, Bold (blue and gold)








Fishing was WAY slower Sunday, but I had an AWESOME day on the water with my girls! My daughter has been begging me to take her to the lake for 2 months but I haven't been able to with the boat broke, but I was finally able to and she had a blast. Brought home 7 crappie, 1 catfish, and great lifelong memories for all of us. It got HOT, no wind, no clouds, sorry shirt had to go. Fish weren't stacked on timber like Saturday. Caught fish on brush and timber from 9-23 FOW. Caught a few dinks that didn't make the cut. All fish caught on the "Haddie Special" a jig my daughter insisted I make for her to fish with lol. Pink and purple, her favorite colors. It truly was an awesome day getting to spend time with my wife and daughter on the water.

Yes sir, it's in a in the waistband holster for concealed carry, but once the shirt came off concealment went away lol. I almost didn't post because of it because I don't advertise the fact that I carry, but oh well. I fully support open carry but I never have wanted to. But in yesterdays case I was covered by the new open carry law seeing as how I do have a CHL.

Also, I generally put it in my shirt on the console when the shirt comes off so I don't freak anyone out being close to their boat houses or anything, but I couldn't do that with my daughter in the boat

Legal on Palestine? I've been told it's no no on most Texas water. You have an LTC now.

If you have CHL you can open carry anywhere you can concealed carry, except state parks, or if private property is posted.
Also note, Palestine is controlled by the Neches River Authority not COE (COE does not allow any kind of carry to my knowledge) and it is not a state park.
