I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving, we sure did!
Emalie and I went to Athens on friday and had a pretty good time at the freshwater fisheries center. The cold water made many of the fish reluctant to bite, but we each caught a quite a few fish.
My first cat on the fly!
Nice green sunfish
Athens is a blast..the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center is like a playground!
On Friday afternoon we scoped out Lake Tyler East and West but came to the determination that we would wait to fish there...
Saturday morning I woke up and mad my way to Tyler State Park. The park is beautiful and reminds me of Daingerfield in its basic shape, size of lake and facilities. The only thing missing was the fish, so I left empty handed.
Later in the day we stopped at Purtis Creek State Park and saw a number of fish crashing the surface, probably a few Bass here and there engulfing some unfortunate thing. Emalie managed 3 fish, of which she reminded me repeatedly on the way home...
Sunday I woke up and went to my spot in Mckinny and....I TORE IT UP!!!
Managed to land 26 fish and lost another 5 or so...
The fish were all really light bluegills and nice redears:
Not bad for a couple hours in rainy 40 degree weather!
