We had some absolutely outstanding action on Fayette today. Water temps ranged from 66-71 degrees. It's very exciting when you're "doubling up", and catching on consecutive casts. Caught over 35 fish in one area, and 15 in another, and a couple here and there. Of those 35, maybe two of them were under slot. Had a good number of fish going 4+ pounds. (Some pics below).
We mostly threw soft plastic, but R-traps, and Don Harper's tweaked spinner baits accounted for many fish as well. The look, action, and quality of Don Harper's spinner bait is phenomenal.
I do guide on several lakes, and have fortunately been catching solid fish on several lakes. (Mainly Austin,Dunlap and today on Fayette). I understand many of you are very knowledgeable fisherman, and may not have considered hiring a guide, but I am on the water nearly every day. Check out the videos on the home page of my official website, which is in the signature line below. If you've got a decent, safe, "fishable", rig, I would be glad to hop on-board with you for a reasonable guide fee. Send a PM.
