I know we are all looking forward to trophy cat season, especially because it will be much cooler than it is outside right now. We are on day 62 without measurable precip and I think this is day 42 of 100 degree plus temperature for the summer which is right up there with 2011. BUT... If you get out there and spend some time on the water, there are good fish to be caught. This week we boated a few good fish. See pictures below. Tight lines and God Bless y'all...

Me and Skeetmaster went out last week to see if a Texas Blue would eat some Alabama skipjack... The answer is yes!

Got a good 28, almost 29 pound post spawn male. He would go 30 plus most of the year but was a little thin Saturday.

Right before the bell to head for the barn, Wyatt got him a 14.5.

Well said Tim. It's tough to catch a toad from the comfort of an a/c cooled couch!

Man, I love the look on Wyatt's face. Talk about a proud fisherman!

I agree, that little man looks happy as can be. You should have got him in holding it to get slimed too. I always get them to slime their self with the first fish lol. Tell them it's a must do!!!

Edit: those are all awesome cats and they look really clean too, no sores or shapes on them...

I went out today, armed with good fresh gizzard shad that I caught yesterday, and headed out just before daybreak. Hoping to catch a bigger post spawn fish, twenty pounds +++....

A beautiful Texas morning.

My local lake, Lake Lavon, was packed though haha! nuts

I located fish in 25 foot of water, and started to soak baits. The wind was forecast 5-10mph, but almost as soon as I started drifting got up to 15mph, gusting up to 20, so not great in my small tin boat.

Bites were few and far between, but managed two blues, one of 9 pounds and one half that size.

I moved location to get out of the wind, and as soon as I did it dropped of course....

Four and a half hours fishing, but the bite stopped after 9am so called it a day. My mentor advised me I need to be more patient and fish for longer, and I know he is right.

I hate it when the heat comes on though....

Still a good day, a very good day.
