    Default What a week....

    as mentioned in an earlier post, took some time off from work, to fish 5 straight days w/visiting brother-n-law. Mainly long-line trolled a minimum of 6 hrs each day & was glad 2 week's prior I decided to wire my 2 deep cycle batteries in parallel & add a 3rd start battery, as we had no issues with any loss of power= 1 heck of a test trial.... anyways 4 different lakes & a section of the St. John's yielded over 250 specks (over 50% of which were thrown back for seed). Caught bass, catfish, gar, mudfish, warmouth, a few monster gills, & a lion's share of target crappie. Kept (18)1st trip, (14) the 2nd, (40) the 3rd, (19) the 4th, & finished Friday w/(45) keepers....plenty to fill the brother-n-law 50# limit for the plane ride home. Had no incidents to damper the party & the weather cooperated for the most part, except the day we pulled 19 from lemon bluff, which was too windy to fish any lakes. BTW they have built a new ramp facility on the river @ lemon bluff, however, completion is on hold for engineering adjustment needed for current flow, we were told, pic below. Also seen a blimp (goodyear) & hugh military plane fly over that day, pretty cool. Haven't fished all day & processed fish like that for some time, but somehow feel OK, for 1 more bite...LOL.... anyways was very blessed to be able to put the brother-n-law on fish, being it's April....1 table pic the gill is below a 15" speck, to show how well it stacked up, & can personal say, this ain't no speck, @ the time it came aboard, hope your lines are tight till next time What a week........O, a little counter error on the day of 45, was finished by 2pm that day, just an awesome biteWhat a week....Name:  IMG_20210414_084723764.jpg

    good to create memories like that. And to think, he ( your brother -in- law)was the one who taught you about speck fishing. Thanks for sharing your trips with us.

    Great times for the BIL to take with him and think on later. It was nice to meet him at the fest, he seemed to enjoy himself and fit right in with the rest old us. Hope to see him again at a future fest or just out having fun with you again. Good Job Mister!!
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    Jeff , fishing everyday can get to be habit forming. Good job not letting the weather stop you from fishing.
