I haven't fished much lately but decided to check out twin lakes around lunchtime. I'm not sure if the storm rolling in had anything to do with it but they were biting! caught 9 in about 1.5 hrs. nothing under 2 lbs. one of the best days I've had at twin lakes. Have a great weekend everyone and happy fishing.
Took the kids to a kayak demo by Mariner Sails of Dallas back on May 19th and took the action camera to capture the fun. I tested out several kayaks that I wanted to see but didn’t get to test them all. Still had a blast with the kids. Here are the videos from the day. Part 1
Just a reminder to anyone beating the banks at the ponds, creeks, and lakes or anywhere there is water for that matter to watch for those miserable chiggers out there. They are always near water along the banks and does not have to be high grass. Chiggers will even get you at the city ponds so make sure you spray that insect repellent on good. Nothing worse than a bunch of chigger bites all over you especially just below the waist line....ugh....
Made it to the Lower Illinois River (Oklahoma) earlier this month – June 2, 2018. Had a fun time wet wading the river for a chance at trout and other fish! Water was murky but really cold. Great way to beat the heat of Summer! Wet Wading for Trout on the Lower Illinois River.
Been a while since I posted mostly because I haven’t had time to fish in weeks. Busy time of year at work and finding a good time to get out with the weather has been tough. I attempted to night fish a few times but weather ruined those plans. Finally got out for the NTXKC event #4 at Possum Kingdom lake. Had a great time on that amazing and beautiful lake. I didn’t have as much luck as I did last year on that lake. Last year I managed a limit and a cull. This year I only caught 3 bass and only 2 were big enough to score leaving me with 29.75” it was enough for 31 out 70 anglers. A lot of people had a really tough day with only like 9 limits for the day and it paid out 7 places. Here is the video from the event.
Sidetracked with a trip to the Texas Hill Country and the Texas Coast. Snippet of this trip; more to come as we wind the trip down! Quick Update - June 29, 2018. Still liking the 5wt and the OPST Commando Head for the river!
Got out for a little pond fishing a few weeks back haven’t had much time to edit with working so many hours lately. Might try to get out soon and do some bank or kayak fishing. But here is what I got for now.
Great reports and pics/video. Been sidetracked with the day job but finally finished the video of our road trip to the Texas Coast with lots of sidetrips while enroute. Had a week off from the day job and no particular plans... so, filled-up on gas and hit the road to checkout locations along the way! Video is longer than what we normally post, but hoped to have captured some of the things we did and learned thi road trip! Road Trip to the Texas Coast and Sidetrips, too!
