After two mornings of far better catching than you would ever have expected, we are now bracing for whatever Harvey will bring our way. At this point it looks like we will just get a world of unneeded fresh water for the next few days, but this hurricane still has time to swing our way. By the time it is over we may be strolling for white perch in Sabine lake.
This marks the fourth consecutive year that we have had some type of major rain event screw everything up. I am even more concerned as to how much rain Toledo Bend will get as they have been over the 171.5 mark for a while. If they have to throw the gates open again we will get water from both directions!
We got wet the past few mornings, but caught the heck out of reds and a few solid trout. We never ran farther south than Willow Bayou. Knowing that bite was going to get washed out a day or two later was tough to take. i have talked with several guides from Galveston to Matagorda that were tied down and leaving this morning. They said they were currently getting more rain than wind, but it won't be long before that changes.
Be careful! Don't take any chances with travel plans and pull the drain plug if your boat is parked in the driveway!!
