It is before daylight and we are tying on baits using a flashlight. I tell him to tie on a firetiger Bagley DB3 on one rod and a T-rig big worm on the other.

He gets the crankbait tied on first and sets it down across the back deck with the bait hanging in the water. Then he grabs his other rod and sits down next to me and starts rigging up his T-rig.

We are both sitting there quietly tying on baits and all of a sudden there is a big splash and his rod on the back deck goes shooting off into the lake. The boat has not moved. Neither one of us have moved. It is still dark as night and we both look at each other like What tha heck just happened!!

A fish had apparently grabbed his crankbait floating right beside the boat and jerked his rod off in the pond!! We waited until it was light and started casting all around the area. Never found it..... eeks





Here's another one for ya Rodney:

I caught my first 8 pounder on 12-27-81 on the west end of the pipeline on a 12" black neon worm at 2 am. One week later I took one of my co-workers with me for another whack at them.

He had never night fished before and he showed up at my house about 10 pm wearing a jean jacket with a flannel shirt. I tell him it is going to drop down into the low 30's that night and he tells me it will be okay because he has longjohns on underneath his jeans.

I am wearing all of my cold weather gear plus a 10X jumpsuit. By 4 am he is so cold he is miserable. I am warm & toasty.

He goes to make a cast with my rod & reel and away it goes, off into the pond!! I grab a marker buoy and unwrap the lead weight from around it and toss it into the lake where I thought it went in. I tell him to keep fishing, that we would worry about it once it got daylight.

We fish on until dawn and catch two small fish. I decide it is time to go try to recover my rig so I troll over to my buoy. We tie on slabs and lose them. We tie on Little Georges and lose them too. We lose every jigging spoon in my boat trying to snag my rod & reel.

Finally I tell Clark that we are throwing in the towel and he will just have to replace my rig. He is bummed out.

I grab the marker buoy and start rolling up the line. I can tell it is a little heavier than it should be. I get the lead weight up to the surface and lo & behold, the lead weight has snagged the rod about midway up. Clark was a happy camper.



( I caught my first 8 pounder on 12-27-81 )

Wow, that's the same year Lakeview HS opened. Getting deep in here.

Being an ex-biker I've got a million of'em but I'm way outta my league in story telling next to Ken and most of'em are true. thumb


I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don't have a curfew, I have a drivers license,a PU truck and I have a bass boat.

Yessir, To go from a tackle rep to a fishing guide you do whatever you have to do to pay the bills.

Fishing one day under the road bridge and there were lots of boats there. One guy had 4-5 rods out fishing live bait in the current. He sets the hook on one rod and a couple seconds later one of his other rods takes off and over the side of the boat it goes. About 30 minutes later I set the hook on a fish, reel it up to find another hook in her mouth. Pulled the guys rod and reel up and trolled over and have it back to him.

A guide out there that past away many years ago (Gerald Roebuck) helped to pull us off that stump. Once we got unstuck, we got passed the rail road bridge, the front deck blew open and it was all I could do to get that thing to the first point on the left and there it sat. We drove to Pittsburgh and bought an 1983 kingfisher, not much better but it worked...


That was you guys?!! That boat sat there for years!!


Nope that wasn’t our boat, I know the boat you are referring too though. I went out there one day by myself, thinking I know where I’m at... wrong the steam and fog got so thick, I couldn’t see the bow of the boat I was in. It took me 3 hours from the rail road bridge to the highway bridge (pre-gps).

But our old skeeter baron was picked up about two days later by a company out of Pittsburgh. They floated it with three huge inner tubes and towed it in. The hole was the size of a basketball.

My best memory was fishing the lake right after the Texas State record was broken and it was really crowded. We went in late 1980 or early 1981....fished nights mostly and the number of boats on the water was amazing!

My buddy caught a 9 pounder on his first cast(while working on a backlash)and an 8 pounder on the next cast. He was fishing a black/blue jig with pork rind on west side of lake near an old roadbed.

We thought we were going to load the boat....only a few smaller bass next few nights.
We spoke with one man who was well know back then for fishing like 30 nights in a row....
