Lake Fork and I just don't get along. Unless I am running a trot line, or the blue gill are really shallow. Neither was the case this weekend when Sterling and I ventured forth onto its discolored and apparantly fishless waters. Yeah we caught a few small things near the dock, but our hunger was not sated. Broken propellers, stranded in the lake, missing hitches, trench foot, heat, smelly rotting stuff. I will try to put this weekend out of my mind.
Hunched Shoulders and Dissapointment...
Cute Pumkinseed or Redear?
Long Ear....I'd like an aquarium of these!
Hopefully I will have some luck closer to home this week.
Hit up my sweet spot again and tried a few different things. Had luck, caught 14 fish of various sizes. Here are a couple nice ones. I hooked a 3 or 4 lb bass in a "cove" type area. I got excited and horsed him a little too much and he came off the popper, or the popper wasn't hooked deep enough. Win some lose some! I will be going back in the next day or two to try for him again.
Its been a while since I have updated, but that is mainly be cause I have not fished since Emalie and I returned from NM. On saturday and sunday I remedied that!
I will not divulge my spot, but needless to say it is in far North DFW.
I arrived at the body of water around 3pm. The wind was blowing like crazy and really challenged my casting skill. I was on a grassy dam on the north end of a 200 acre or so municiple lake/pond. Id guess that it is around 20 feet in the middle with an average depth of around 8 feet at the sides. The edges are bricked, so there are only a ocuple spots with a natural shore line. The sides are rimmed with a very soft non-lure absorbing type of moss that provided tons of cover, but never snagged my fly.
I cast out about twenty feet and let my fly sink to a count of aorund "ten-onethousand" and almost everytime I cast I was rewarded with a Bluegill. A huge Bluegill. A monstrously Huge OMFG Bluegill. 2lb+
Enough talk, here are the pics!
