For all that follow my posts you will remember that I lost my previous tube. I tried to use an old donut style tube I have but it wouldn't hold air. So, I had to get a new tube. The Cabelas in Allen TX had a Caddis (Nevada Model) for $99 and I decided that would do. I have a Cabelas visa and always have a bunch of points so I used points to pay for the tube and paid the sales tax with cash. So the tube cost me a whopping $7 and change.
Today was the first day I could use it so I loaded up at daylight and went to Lake Athens. The tube worked fine and the fish were biting.I spent a few hrs catching one sunfish after another. I didn't want any for the table so I turned them all loose. I used my typical Lake Athens rig of a 1/64th oz unpainted jig head with a piece of crawler about an inch long. The redbreasts could leave it alone. I'd guess I got 30-40 of them up to about 10 inches long. In between the sunfish I got a small bass and a channel cat of around 2 lbs. I kept the cat for supper.
I'm back in business! Life is good here in East TX.
