We were going to fish half a day after a client had to cancel late due to being under the weather, but it didn't work out. Before we could get to the lake, we pulled in a young couple that had been paddling their 14 foot aluminum boat with an umbrella most of the morning. They weren't too far from their launch site, but they weren't making much headway and the wind was not helping them at all.
We ran back out and fished Black's just to say we fished. The water wasn't just terrible, but it wasn't clear for the bayou. We could do without more rain. We caught 9 or 10 small redfish, a flounder that would have kept, and two pretty good stripers on pumpkin-green Sea Shads. We didn't even look at the lake.
I'll be over in Beaumont tomorrow and Sunday at the Texas Marine in-house Boat Show. I'll do a seminar Saturday morning and another Sunday afternoon. I am going to share some things that I have done a little differently this year that have really worked well. It beats fighting the rain unless you are volunteering your time with the crab trap roundup.....hope to see you there!
