  • They call me the breeze....

    My apologies to the late, great Ronnie Van Zant.... I canít sing, but I watch the weather forecast religiously. Especially the wind! Today was cool, but the wind was predicted to be lighter, so about 4:00, I hooked up the boat in record time and we were off to a still to be determined ramp. We choose from three ramps on these quick evening trips, and I suggested one with a lot of known brush piles, as thatíís the way I like to fish. One rig at the ramp, but that ainít gonna worry us! After all, lots of these old country boys and girls are no doubt sitting in a stand on the last week before ML season. I ainít got no bow, and I ainít got no Black Powder weapon, so Iím still fishing! Water temps this evening were 62.5-65.5, depending on the location. We found some fish in 20+ FOW, and we fished about 15íí down. The bite was light, so you better be in contact with your jig, and a close eye needs to be alert to detect a ďtickĒ or slack in the line. This 13.75 wanted some Sweet Tea with Lemon, and I took this pic to include my BGJP for Gís contest!
    Iíve caught a handful of TARPS this year, but the Golden Rule said this old gal didnít quite make it! She just needs 1/4ĒĒ more, but alas, she will not attain TARP status. Instead, she will satisfy my urge for fried crappie! I have memorialized her in pictures, however! Notice the Power T in the background? Also, if you think Iím stupid enough to photograph her where she was caught, well, youíd be wrong!
    We didnít keep all that we caught, but weííre gonna eat good, and probably include a couple from church that had us over last week for some awesome Backstrap steaks. The obligatory cooler shot.
    Boys and girls, theyííre starting to group up! Get out there and have some fun!
