  • One more fish please

    After freezing yesterday, I had no ambition of repeating the process. Frost on the car just solidified my thought early today. Time went by, a few shows on TV, and I just couldn’t sit any more. Put some clothes on and went outside to find it had warmed up nicely and the sun was out. 15 minutes later I was hooked up and headed back to the scene of yesterday’s crime. Light crowd at the ramp, I was on my way in no time. The wind was half what it was yesterday and the sun felt just great! Ran out to what I thought would be a good starting point. And I went this way, then that way, yawn, this way some more. Turning things over in my mind about color, location, water temps and about everything else I could think of. An hour and three quarters before a rod bent and I was on my way to a good diner. Water in the cooler and I kept after it. Started out running north/ south and finally turned east, the wind had laid down some. One rod went down, then another. A fifteen minute flurry added three more to the box, then back to the here and there, looking around kinda thing. About three hours into this, I tilted my head up and made a humble request for one more fish to complete a good dinner for those at my house. A little more turning here and there and a rod quietly went down, hard. A bit of a tussle and a very nice fish came to the net. The tail was split to the base and healed over time and she was a chunky one. Just put batteries in my scale yesterday and this was the first chance to use it. She pulled it down to 2lbs 1oz, my first 2 pounder of the new year. It would seem my request had been answered. Time was getting on and I now had fish to cook, so I wrapped things up and headed home, it was just after three. No throw backs, everything was a good keeper fish 12” or better. Flat calm again it was a pleasant ride to the ramp, now almost empty. Once there it didn’t take long to put things up and fillet the days take before the sun got low and it cooled again. A slow, relaxing day and a good dinner for all 4 of us. Hope y’all got out and got a few. Maybe I’ll get to see you soon, til then.......Skeet

      Yep Ketchn, the tannins in the water create the "tea" color in lakes along the St. John's river system, folk tale is it being caused from cypress tree root, however, the "science" says certain types of decay in plants cause the dark color, either way makes for beautiful black crappie.....WTG Timbo, dinner is served!
