I fished with Mike Cooley and Dave Flanagan Saturday and had Mike not said something, I would never have noticed that a lot of recent posts didn't get published. That doesn't help anyone now, but I will try to keep a better eye on it. Mike said that he couldn't figure out if I had died or if I had a great bite going and didn't want to tell anyone. Its the bad reports I hate to type up!
We have been fishing Big Lake since the last round of flooding here on Sabine. The water clarity was about as bad as I had seen it on the east side of the lake Saturday, but there were still some trout to be caught. The problem was that the size was not there. We moved to the west side of the lake around noon, found a little better water conditions and did better on both the trout and the redfish. Our largest trout was only three pounds.
The water temperature climbed to 64 degrees by the time we quit. We drift fished all day, but the waders did a little better just staying in one spot and grinding it out. I talked with Adam Jaynes this afternoon and he said that he caught four or five nice trout on topwaters early this morning and small redfish the remainder of the day.
We will be back on Big Lake tomorrow and Tuesday and fish Sabine the following two days. I thought taking the time to type these reports at night was the hard part....I hate computers. Thank God my wife knows how to make them work!
