The biggest problem we had last week was launching....not catching. In spite of the cold (we were still fishing 43 degree water Friday afternoon) we caught a lot of fish everyday. We started the week off catching some of the best trout I have caught this year and ended the week just pounding the redfish. Much of the water that we were catching our trout in earlier in the week was down to the mud and we couldn't find therm in the nearest deep water.
You know the bite is good when the few fishermen we saw everyday were convinced they were on the best bite in the lake regardless of what they were doing. We caught our trout on fat Boys and She Dogs and our reds on tails and Swim Baits. Amazingly enough, as good as the bite was we saw very little bait on the surface. The reds I kept and cleaned were full of bream and big mullet.
I hope to get over to the Boat Show one day this week, but I have a lot to do and a short time to do it. I dropped by Outcast Tackle and Steve was unloading a brand new shipment of Fat Boys and Softdine XL's. The only bad news was that he had a waiting list of people to call as soon as they arrived. This is early to already have trouble finding Corkies. Corey Rambo also said he had some on the way to his store on MacArthur drive in Orange.
