Fish Finder

I had to do it. I've been off the reservation too long.

Today was partly cloudy and warm (in the 80's) and I was off work. I took yesterday off too to watch Matt in the Area One Act Play competition. Needville's play, "The Night Thoreau Spent In Jail" had advanced from District competition. The cast put on quite a show and the outcome was as good as you could hope for. The play was chosen to advance to Regional competition and Matt was awarded Best Actor out of the six plays.

I got to sleep in and catch up on some paperwork. After enjoying a nice lunch with T. I headed out to Lake Evans. It took me a while to find the fish but when I did I had some good action for a change. The wind was blowing 10-15mph and I tried the BGW(Big Green Worm) and the BWG (Big White Grub), a new addition to the tacklebox thanks to brother Paul.

I picked up one bass on the BWG.

Next I tried a Chug Bug and had some fun topwater action!

I ended up adding four bass to the study and also caught a nice crappie.

I broke off a couple on the BGW so I guess its time to change my line.

Four Bass:
Tag ID 24 - AKA "Waldo" W=1.1lb, L=14.0"

Tag ID 15 - AKA "Jimmy D" W=0.9lb, L=12.75"

Tag ID 13 - AKA "Henry" W=1.0lb, L=13.5"

Tag ID 17 - AKA "The Mama" W=1.5lb, L=14.75"

One Crappie:
Tag ID 14 - AKA "Opal" W=0.6, L=11.5"

Glad to see the "grub" got some action. I am way behind on my water time. I spent all weekend cleaning the barn. I did sign up for a deer lease around Nacodoches...right near Lake Pinkston. Do you know about Pinkston?
