  • Rend Lake with my wife!

    Took my wife out to Rend today. Since we had this planned, I felt we should go
    through with our trip. Woke up this morning to temp in the low 40''s after a cold
    front pushed its'way thru following Monday's all day rain affair driving down from
    the SW burbs, and winds steady at 15-20 with gusts upward of 25! Started to
    think I made a mistake. Met with Nick Shafer of Predator Fishing Guide Service
    for breakfast and he assured me we would be OK. Launched out of Jackie Branch
    on the west side of the lake and decided to make stop at the bridge on the west side.
    Well no sooner did we start to jig the area on the SE corner than my wife lifts a solid
    11 inch fish. I'm fishing on the back of the boat and get a nice short (about 9 1/4").
    We jigger 3/16 jigs with various colors of Lake Fork shad baits. We lasted 5 hrs in
    westerly winds that began WSW and finished WNW at about a steady 20 mph and
    gusts up to 30mph. Caught well over 150 fish in the 5 hours and kept 48 keepers.
    A couple of pics will follow when I get home on Wednesday.

    OK,so here's a couple of photos to support the story from above. Had a great time
    even in the wind and cold weather, and brought a few fish home in the process.

      Great trip, congrats and way to stick with it in that weather. Always wanted to fish Rend as I kept driving by it between different military assignments. Might have to go!
