Blood is always a good sign. Sometimes it's theirs, sometimes it's yours. Solid fish...

Another beautiful thing about fall,winter and spring is no hassling with the boat,I can catch big fish right off the bank with my surf rods.................from shallow coves to 35' holes out in the old creek channel.Caught the fish above about 60-70 yards off shore fishing over a ledge in about 28' of water.Not sure why but I find this type of fishing more challenging and rewarding.Yea I've had some real toads break me off over those ledges,had a huge flathead back in May snap one of my 12' surf rods as he catapulted off a tree in about 4' of water.........took me back over the ledge and snapped 50lb braid, but that was a battle I will never forget.He lives to fight again and I want a rematch

Hassling with boat? Boating is life Whistlebritches! Boating is fun. Boating is the freedom to go wherever whenever you want! Boating is a Creed and preparing the boat for battle is part of the ritual! Blues are never in the same place for long especially in the fall and having the ability to go find where the fish are is what fishing from a boat is all about! Given the option to bank or boat I choose boat 100% of time. For me boating isn’t a hassle, it’s a blessing, and one that I jump at the chance to do every chance I get!

We’re on the water every week year round but my favorite time of year to be on the water is October through March. Fewer boats and bigger fish. We Bluecat all year long.

I am always saying I need to catch some crappie or I need to go after some Sandies... Never happens. When I fish, I fish for blues. just can't pull myself away from them...

Blues are ever changing…in June we’re on humps, ledges, and points in mid depth from 10-30 ft.

I want to weigh in on the "hassling with the boat" issue. I am not a young man anymore but not so old that I can't deal with loading and unloading the boat. I keep the boat in the marina. For me the money to rent a slip is well worth it. Especially when I have my Texas Tornado with me. Chris you are a young guy in good physical condition and for you it doesn't even register on the physical exertion scale. I envy the freedom you have to decide where you want to go on any given weekend.

I am lucky to be close to Lavon like I am. It is easy to get to and I just park the truck, hop in the boat and go. I love that convenience. I get more time on the water which is all I'm after. I keep saying I'm gonna fix up the slip like some of the other guys at the marina. A refrigerator, grill, storage and some furniture. I could live out there...

Aside from soaking baits I just love being at the lake. I love the people I meet there and the lifestyle of being out there as much as I can. So, I understand the issue of hassling with the boat. It can be a lot of work for some of us. For others, not so much. It all boils down to how much we want it. If we are motivated to get out there by an intense passion for our sport, we will do or pay what we have to. If we just think maybe it would be ok, then we might not.

Like Chris, for me, this is life! It is all I want to do. If I didn't have to work, I'd be out there seven days a week. To each his own. God Bless and tight lines y'all.
