Got out and drifted for a few hours with my 4 yr old fishing partner. I had planned to scan for some bigger fish but reality quickly set in and we shifted our game plan to just trying to locate a fishable group. We struggled to locate fish the first hour. We scanned 4 different areas before we finally found a pile of fish on a long point in 30 ft. Once we located em we started catching em 2-3 at a time. This time of year you never know what your gonna catch when you drag through those big groups. We ended up with 11 channels, 9 blues, 1 gar, 1 hybrid and 1 magnum crappie all caught on cut gizzard Shad. We kept the crappie and most of the channels for lunch and released everything else. Got off the water at 10 am when the jet skis started circling. texas

My Zakk planer boards came in the mail last weekend. I can't wait to play with them this coming weekend on the Tn River. I've got some underwater canyons and ledges I'm going to use them on.

Your gonna love em Nut! They work great for ledges and points. I like to line my boat up on a ledge and use my I-pilot to pull me along the contour. The boards allow you to plane some baits on top of ledge, on the ledge, as well as on the bottom of ledge all at the same time. That’s exactly how I used em at deadman’s point Saturday morning. Using planer boards will add a few fish to your stringer but mastering them is a game changer and will forever change the way you fish. texas [Linked Image]

I'm after the big ones. My boat partner brings a grand kid (currently 4 in rotation!) every trip. Our goal is to put them on one 25 lbs or greater. Neither one of us can throw a cast net so I ordered a 10 pack of sabiki rigs for catching skipjack. Previously we have been using cut bluegill which the GK's have enjoyed catching as well. The last time we went out, another boat drifted by and hooked a 28 lb blue. Now the GK's know what monsters lurk in the Tn River. Up until then their biggest was 8 lb.

Your map brings up lots of fond memories when I was a catfish terrorist on Lewisville! cheers

Thanks Amigos! cheers We’re after the big ones too Nut but we haven’t hung one over 20lbs in months. I never look for big fish too hard for very long this time of year or you burn up all the productive bite window in the morning. We’re on our usual 10-20 dinks per trip this time of year. Some trips we don’t see a fish over 5 lbs. I been throwing a few big baits hoping to get lucky but only big fish I’ve marked lately we’re up at Texoma. I need somebody to teach me how to catch something good on Lewisville. texas

Thanks amigos!👍

We usually make those tacos with bluecat Sam but since we don’t catch many channels I figured we would eat something different. This batch of fish I let soak in some Worcestershire and dusted them with Caribbean Jerk seasoning. Topped with spinach and mango and spread some pico on it. Squirt of lime and a bit of 1000 island and you’ll think your down in Belize drinkin Belikin beers amigo!
🤘😎🍻.

Getting to fish with my son so much this past year has been an incredible learning experience for both him and me Nick. It’s not all Roses and I’ve had to spank his butt more than a few times but we got most of those issues ironed out during the pandemic. Jax says he wants to go with Dad this winter to lake Wakoni which is funny cuz only time we’ve been skunked in the last 2 yrs was when I took him to Twok last February. I told him sometimes dad doesn’t catch a single fish when I go looking for monsters and he said he didn’t care as long as we got to build a fire, make s’mores and dad tell some scary fishing stories. texas
