Fished Fayette yesterday with Doc (my good luck charm). Weather was totally awesome...cloudy most of the day with light winds/high around 90. Water temp was 91-92...down a few degrees from last week. Launched from Oak Thicket & observed all the improvements being made to the park...very nice...met TomRom in the parking lot...very few boats on the water this day. Like they say...records are made to be broken. We fished from 7:00 am until a little after 5 pm & ended up with 577 fish, surpassing out mark of 512 set earlier this year. The breakdown was 3 small tilapia, 1 small bass & 573 varieties of sunfish. Had several just shy of a pound. We fished mainly 6 different areas & found active fish everywhere. We did find one brand new bluegill colony that was holding a good amount of fish. I used Gulp Alive minnows (Smelt color) all day & Doc was using Gulp Alive Waxies (Chartreuse color) with a live maggot or 2 added on...both got bit equally well. We talked about the possibility of a 700 fish day & think it could be doable with a good game plan & a lot of discipline...so stay tuned... [Linked Image]

I think this luck you speak about goes both ways. I maybe caught a dozen small perch at LBJ last week. grin

Yesterday was a fabulous day. Everything went our way. The perch were ravenous. The weather was much more
moderate than forecast. I got to meet TomRom yesterday. I caught a Yuuge female bluegill that was close to a pound (14oz).
Great fellowship on the water. All in all a day to be thankful for !

Yeah I left those two guys about 2:00 or 2:30. We were catching them like crazy. I fished for bass at first light and caught several quality fish for the first 1hr 1/2. Then I switched over to the bluegills. My monthly gulp alive bill has even been noticed by the wife haha. I got into them as well and had a good day. I did not keep count but most of the time it was every cast I had action. Cant beat catching quality bass and a ton of bluegills. When I got home I found that my brake caliber bolts had busted and wiped out the brakes on my boat trailer. The only reason I noticed it was had that wheel lock up when I started to back up the trailer into the driveway/garage. I thought the brakes had locked up but it was the caliper that was jammed up against the tire. To add insult to injury it flattened the tire as well. Glad it did not happen when I driving back to Katy on the interstate. Spent the day tracking down parts and a shop that can repair it.

Thanks Chuck, Hunter & Gitter...

Bill...Didn't see you out there...you must have been hanging out at the intake area exclusively ?

Curtis...No commercials in the making for the minnow...plus half the fish were caught on the Waxies...

What an amazing day. I think you would have a shot at the Guinness World Record for the most fish caught in 24 hours. The current record is 2,649 fish. You can do it. roflmao
