Well, heck, Flags . . . Louise and I were driving over the Lake Athens 2495 bridge yesterday around 2:30 PM heading to Houston and I looked down and saw an angler in a float tube just below the east side of the bridge, thought it was you, and honked. Beep beep.
I suppose it was someone else if you were sick at home.
But, you had mentioned that you floated over to the bridge on a trip out a few months ago so I assumed it was you.
I'll get out again soon, have had some luck catching bluegills from my fishing canoe. I have an idea in mind . . . sort of drifting and dragging along a drop shot for bluegills to see if I can find some in deeper water. They appear to have left the shallows, not catching as many around boat houses these days.
The attached photo doesn't do justice to this bluegill caught over a week ago trolling like that. It wasn't nearly as long as some I have caught on Lake Athens but it was very wide (had some shoulders on it!) and felt like it might have weighed close to a pound. Photo from a flip phone so not much of a chance to snap a better pic.
