Great to be back on the water...Wasn't sure how the tendonitis would respond ...Can't swing a golf club without pain, but casting is ok...that's a good thing ! Hit the water at 8:00 am and fished until 5:00 pm. End the day with 37 bass & 6 sunfish. Started out the day catching those 6 gils & thought they were back big time...nope, that was the only 6 I caught all day...they must have been "love scouts"...coming in to search for the ideal areas to set up their spawning beds. On the brighter side...the bass were very active today. I saw people catching bass everywhere I went. My biggest was maybe 4.5 lbs, but caught a lot of nice 2-3 pounders. I fished timber most of the day, but I believe they were biting everywhere. There were tons of boats out today...Don't these people have jobs ? Oh well...in a few month when it is hitting 100 degrees I will have the lake to myself violin [Linked Image]

Great post Steve and some very solid fish. Love seeing a Fayette Bluegill Winter Slab. Good job Sir. thumb



Side Note: Seems that everyday is a Saturday since this Covid Virus came upon us. I have seen people at every place I have fished so far this year. I have seen a lot of people all of last year every time I have been out at my spots. The only places that are people free are spots that are on private property and thank god I have a bunch of those places to fish. The only good side of this is, at least they are enjoying the outdoors. coolio

Great day Steve! I have been anxiously waiting to hear how you did. I didn't get out there until a little after 2:00 and spent most of the 4 hours I had on the water playing with the livescope. Found lots of baitfish with it just not a lot of big fish that wanted to bite(probably Tilapia). Had lots of fun and hated to see the sun go down. I think the weather men got the wind wrong though! Seemed to stay about 10mph or so out of the east all the time I was there until about the last 45 minutes when i turned to glass.

You are right, most people I talked to at the ramp had a good day.

Thanks for the report.

Alan

Good for you Steve. I was heading there and had a blowout on the passenger side trailer tire about 6:15 am on I-10. I was between Sealy and Columbus. State Police only stayed with me for around 15 minutes. I told the tow truck driver if he felt more comfortable towing my trailer to a safe place to change the tire I was ok with that. I was in the left side of the road when I was passing a truck. Must of hit something in the road and blew a tire. Going to the right side was not an option. Anyway had to wait until around 7 or so for the AAA driver to show up. Luckily it was only a blown tire and not a bearing issue. I was going to replace them next month because they were showing wear and they were 4 years old with many miles on them. I decided just to go back to Katy. Glad I did because my wheel bearings showed they needed to be replaced. Maybe next week I will make it there.

Chuck...You are right...the great outdoors is the best place to be for sure.

Thanks Curtis, Curt & Yesenia...the year is starting out right.

Tom...Bummer...I thought I would see you out there yesterday, now I know why you were MIA. I know it won't make you feel any better, but there were 2 boats on your super secret spot almost all day...finally got to try it around 4:30 after it had been pummeled all day. Got 3 there. Hope to see you next week.

Alan...since when do we actually believe the weather folks. It is only a rough guide what they predict...especially for the wind...I usually tack on 5 mph to whatever they predict & decide if I can live with that.

Nice catch !! Especially for a blue bird day. You just never know. Glad to hear the tendonitis didn’t flair on you. Golf is bad enough but to be out of commission on both. Argh ! cry

Thanks doc...This was a "test" trip to see how long I could last. If I have to quit golf...well so be it...but if I have to give up fishing, just bury me now confused 3

Great fishing as always Vogey! Good job. woot



Side Note: You are spot on about the huge numbers of people fishing. There are still some tackle shortages ! I would add the shortages have become less and it seems that stores are getting their shipments in regularly. coolio

Curtis...The Walmart & Dicks here in New Braunfels appear to be all fully re-stocked with tackle.
