i've been mainly working on getting my boats back into shape after the long period of non-use.  All sorts of things go wrong when you don't use a boat.  :(

I have fished a little  bit here and there.  All slip fishing.  I've caught a few but they have all been undersized.  Have caught a few LMB and white bass, which I released without checking size.

They can provide a fun fight but they are not on my menu.

Went fishing on an out of state lake a couple weeks ago.  Lake is reputed  to be a great small mouth, large mouth, and walleye lake.   They, uh, stretched the truth a lot. 

All I caught was some cats and undersized bream. 
Now one cat was over 27 inches, on a jig and ultra light tackle. That was a great contest.

Found fish in 24 ft. of water today, one crank off the bottom.  It's hard to feel a soft bite 23 ft. down on a 1/16 jig.

The way I am hurting today it is going to rain somewhere close by.  but close by may not put any water in Joe Pool Lake, which it needs.

Once I get the pontoon cleaned up and ready to go I plan on fishing early mornings and maybe some night time fishing.  It will be just me so I am open to fishing partners anytime a member wants to fish Joe Pool Lake with me.

added:  It just started raining here, hope it rains enough to water the lawn.  :)

I always say I am going to start fishing at dawn but somehow I never make it before 8 AM.   I much better at fishing until midnight or later.   :)

The rain didn't last long, just long enough to get your hopes up.

Got the jerky smoked, but it wasn't any fun in the rain...But we sure need it!

I didn't make a mail run earlier because of the rain and stuff, but man am I glad I did before bedtime. Had a surprise from the Llano Estacado. I have been wantin ta get my hands on some of the new Nexage chenille, and guess what shows up tonight. Not only did Chris tye me up some jigs with it, but he sends me a sample of it too...Thanks brother, I really appreciate it. It would be really cool ta get ta stick a few crappie using these with my new jig pole...

The forum will remain so we can still keep in touch and brag when we catch a big one.  :)

I'm just talking about the contest here. 

And you are right.  The remaining members have done a great job of trying to promote the contest.  I appreciate the work that everybody has put into this, especially the jig tiers. 

And I can always start it again if we get enough members who want it.

What do the rest of you think?  Is it time to end the contest?

I prefer fishing in the day time too, but early right now. I was stopped yesterday by a TPWD person  and he asked what time I got on the lake and when I planned on leaving. Not sure what kinda survey he was doing, but it was a first for me.
At the time I was fishing some condos that the department deployed, so I struck up a conversation about that. We had a good visit and he was very nice, but it doesn't sound promising that I'm going to be able to build some of my own. I did offer my boat and services if they decide to build some more. And FYI, it isn't the department, but the city that is the problem...

I may be going out tomorrow, into the Texas July heat,  with my son in law, who's never fished.   
It will be a learning experience, for at least one of us.  I am really hoping that he likes fishing.

Vise came in yesterday.  It is well built piece of equipment.  Over the weekend I should have some time to work on my fall jigs and get used to the rotary function of it.  I tied a couple last night just to try it out and I must say I'm impressed so far.

Finally getting started...and already need more frames. My father, he passed away in 79, and I collected them over the years and I finally have a place to display them. I hope I can do them justice.

Shot a limit of dove yesterday and another today... Yesterday was easier than today fer sure. Sent the uncles and cousins home with a nice mess as well. :gunslinger
Didn't get back on the dove lease this year and been regretting it.  Haven't seen many at all around the house this year.

When I got in the truck to go to work this morning it was 61*.  Fall is on its way.  Fish should be headed up shallow.  I been busy working and going to my daughters volleyball games, but maybe get a chance to hit the water this weekend.

Woo-hoo!  Fall is creeping in and lake temps should be creeping down.

Now, if I could figure out how to get out to a lake pass my wife.  She claims I go out fishing way too often (last time was in July).
