    A wonderful time of the year, no shiners needed till next Summer. Most of you know I keep my own live bait on site. Well yesterday I scooped all the shiners left in the tank and took them to the launch with me because I was going fishing. Keeping a water chiller running, a circulating pump running, feeding, cleaning the tank, all contributes to high quality live bait. Also maintaining the water quality takes monitoring frequently. The shop always take some adjusting when the system is shutdown because it is so quiet. All the shiners were dumped in the at the ramp, my jigheads and plastics from Jason's Jigs on Ebay are smokin' the fish here. I will be moving to the Ketchn jigheads (I call them Ketchn because I pour them with #6 hooks following His recommendation) and some hand tied jigs from Takum & myself. The floating vegetation oils in our river system really ruins a hand tied jig, coats them with a brown sludge so only plastics are used normally. Our water is so clear and flow thru the woods has stopped so hand tied jigs can be used. Had a good trip with some of Takeum's yesterday. They caught Black Crappie, Shell Crackers, Goggle-Eye, Bass, & 'Gills. If you get some from Takum you will catch fish.

    Did you see the NOLA.com article yesterday about the mystery brown oil slick in the exclusive big bucks subdivisions along Lake P?
    DEQ is involved , taken samples, and the parish president is advising people and pets not to swim in it. It’s not flammable and has a neutral pH so it’s not toxic was the parish presidents advice. The million dollar water front lots have the brown vegetable oil covering their yachts and canals.

    Bon Temps!!

    I was able to dry out the Koi Filter a bit yesterday while fishing. The Media Foams you don't clean spotless unless you have a biological problem where you Sanitize them. I do Sanitize all the hard plastic stuff like the pump housing, tank, chiller, all lines, the Filter housing, etc. before storing assembled once full dried. Allowing the Environmental Media to air dry leaves dormant enzymes that help with a quick startup when the time comes for charging the tank up again. I Sanitize using Star-San, same thing I use in Wine making. I kills the stuff we can't see after washing out what we can see.

    The Swamps here have rotting vegetation that provides the source of brown, oily, goo. Washes off your boat easy enough if you wash it off regularly but stains the hairs of a jig real bad. It will completely ruin a feather on the first dip. No worries, at the rate I go thru plastic bodies catching Crappie they get torn before they get funky.
