Dad felt well enough to go fishing yesterday so we gave it a go.

I did not take a lot of pictures, but snapped a few.

We fished timber.
Shallowest we fished was 12 feet and deepest was 25 feet.
We actually caught several fish in 12 feet of water right at 12 feet.
Best bite was in 15 feet of water or deeper and the fish were 14 feet down.
Some bites were right at 15 feet in 15 feet of water.
1/16 and 1/8 ounce hand tieds.
I really don't think color mattered yesterday, but we used Green on Green and Purple Body with a yellow tail.
Our trick instead of using minnows or Crappie Nibbles we dipped the tails in Chartreuse Spike It. Dipped them right before we started fishing and it lasted all day long.
If there were fish on the timber you were fishing we knew in less than 10 seconds. We pulled 2-3 off several trees.
Lost several for a myriad of reasons.
Some of the bites they would give it this lite machine gun tap several times. We just held it still. Then Wham! Like they were killing it before they went to eat it.
Some bites were super lite and others they would absolutely SLAM IT! Others they were just sucking in the easy meal.
Morning bite was better than the afternoon bite for us.

ACC Rods. I used a 12 foot and Dad was using an 8 foot.
Line was 20 pound Power Pro Super Slick Braid in Aqua Green.
Vanish Gold Fluorocarbon Leader in 8 pound.
Jigs were Bubba's Baits from Lake Fork, Pepop's jigs, and Fearless jigs by Zach Church.
No Plastic or Live Bait used.
Water Temp was 87 when we first got on the water it was 92 when we came off at 4pm. (About 3 hours later than we should have came off)

We used the Neutrogena Sunscreen in 100 SPF.

We fished Tawokini.

We are ready for this heat to go and we are ready for the Fall.

A good mix of Blacks and Whites.
Ended the day with 40. We lost at least 20.

Fish were given to a Grandfather fishing with his Grandson.

Tight Lines to All. fish

My hat goes off to all the fishing guides that work in this heat every day.
You guys are an amazing asset to fishing and bringing smiles to lots of happy customers.

cheers

Thanks fellas.

Just happy to get my father on the water and spend some quality time with him.

That chair is a Captain Chair for a Pontoon Boat.

It cost $400.

I can tell you that my father has tried so many different types of chairs over the years and nothing has come close to the stability and comfort that this chair provides him on the water.
He was having numerous back issues and he still has some back issues, but the chair has helped him in that department immensely.

There are some things in life that are worth every penny and after fishing with that chair for close to a year I can tell you he has absolutely no regrets about the purchase.

If you are looking for something that has great comfort and good stability then we can highly recommend one of these chairs.

His stability in the boat is not the greatest and I feel a lot better knowing he is in that Captain Chair when we go fishing.
I do not worry like I used to about him falling out of the chair.

I highly recommend the chair especially if you are in the older category.

The first time we fished with the chair we had a guy at the ramp freak out about how awesome the set up was.

We told him to come back the following weekend because we were having Direct TV and a Kegarator installed. roflmao

Thanks again to all. Be Safe out there.

Nice Crappie, and good job taking your Dad out. I took mine out once a week for 30 years until he was 85. Lost him 16 years ago. Please be careful in this heat. I've had 2 heat strokes years ago fishing tournaments. The last one put me in bed for 52 hours and I nearly died. Now I'm a fishing guide on Lake Sam Rayburn and I only do 1/2 day trips. I never stay out past 1:00 this time of the year. www.camoriverguideservice.com

Haven't been since the 7th.

Timber 15 Feet of water or deeper.

Back on the 7th most bites came at 14 Feet.
Some trees held multiple fish.

Purple with a yellow tail hand tied.
Green with a green tail hand tied.

1/8 and 1/16.

Tails dipped in Chartreuse Spike it.

It won't take long if the tree is holding fish. Less than 10 seconds.
Fish were always for the most part holding on the upwind side facing right into the wind.

Good Luck please let me know how you do.

I would say 12 Feet all the way to the bottom is fair game.
Vary the depth until you find the Strike Zone. I really think 14-16 will be the sweet spot.
