Took the tube out on Athens today for about 2 hrs on a mission. The mission was to put some fish in the freezer. Normally I'm a catch and let go kind of person for the most part but the fetching and beautiful Mrs. Chief wanted some on ice. Also I decided if I want some I needed to do it now because next week I have a leadership camp with some of the cadets from my NJROTC unit and will be in Fort Worth and on 6/24 I head for the high country in CO for a few weeks of trout fishing. By the time I get back to TX the fish will be deep and harder to find.
So I got some crawlers and headed to a few of my favorite spots. Like a dummy I forgot my phone and couldn't take pics while fishing. I think I caught about 30 fish and I kept an even dozen.
These were all good fish but the photo really doesn't do them justice since there is nothing in it for scale. So I grabbed the 2 biggest fish and put my left hand in the photo to show how big they were. Really quality sunfish in my opinion.
In addition to the sunfish I got one small bass and a turtle. So Mrs. Chief now has some fillets for when I'm in CO. Live is good here in East TX.
