I bet you could catch ‘em on a Jerkbait late this afternoon on north banks with this 77 degree day and 40mph wind. I know I’m not brave enough. Surely nobody is fishin* today......If they didn’t cancel Toyota Series on Rayburn, I pray that everyone comes off the lake safely. Man, it’s howling out there!

Okie, I don't know if I'm just not as tough as I used to be or if I am just not as mad attum as I used to be but it's not blowing at all here in my living room right now.

I have found a nice cove blocking the wind here in front of my man cave. Hard to tie hair jigs with the window open though

It' has been a very mild winter so far. Looking at the long range forecast for the South Central Texas area the over all winter picture is a mild winter. thumb



Side Note: What we really need here in South Central Texas is RAIN, and a lot of it! de

It always seems like we try to rush spring. I have a tournament so I'll be out there tomorrow, but I'm not looking forward to battling the wind even on a small lake.

I fished most of the day but it was pretty tough. I really put the Ultrex to the test today. I caught a few in 15ft to 18ft on a c-rig and caught a few in a foot of water punching grass mats and brush. Water temp was 54 when I left.

Left at 5:45 turned around when the rain started, tinkered in the garage until 9. Launched @ 9:30 and fished all day torturing the new trolling motor. One bite and planted two trees.. Was wicked rough on my little lake, and I stayed sheltered just behind the main lake points. Swells in grapevine lake were wicked, couldn't even imagine what they were like on a big lake. Definitely a day to test drive a new boat. Spot lock in 25-30 mph winds test passed, might have to turn in my man card as I got a little queasy in the back seat.. Batteries flexed harder today than they ever had. Will be interesting to see footage from a tournament in the wind we had today.

Grapevine lake water temp 48 in main lake.

There was 4-6 boats out on Lake Bridgeoort today. Saw them on the water near the bridge and parked at the ramp.

Dadgum, that is a nice fish. Way to go.... All I caught besides a catfish on a crankbait was my broke off carolina rig.
