Got out finally
« on: October 08, 2018, 03:51:04 PM »
I got out with my stepson yesterday.  We took jigs, a dozen minnows, a box of night crawlers.   Stepson likes live bait.
Caught a few fresh, mostly crappie and a yellow bass. Only kept the one bass and one crappie (it just squeaked legal).
Used all the live bait. lost a small handful of jigs to snags.

It was good to get out.

Anyone else get a hook wet?  It has become a ghost town here with Ed MIA.

I suggest we keep posting like we used to, just not for jigs based on a random drawing. Fall is about here in south Texas, so the bite should be on shortly. Post pictures of your catches and the best pic of the month will get a dozen jigs from me. Let's keep it going guys, I hope Ed is OK.
I woke up this morning.  At my age, that is a GOOD thing!

I totally agree Dutch, let's keep this site active.

I wish I knew how to check on Ed.

Glad to read your post and see that you had a chance to go fishing with your stepson.  I wish my grandsons here in Arlington liked to fish but all they want to do is play computer games.  :)

I like to eat crappie but the real fun for me is in the fishing.  In the past I could be happy fishing, even if I was skunked.

I am going to go fishing next week if Joe Pool Lake drops below flood stage.  I found an email in my inbox from Lynn Creek Marina, saying the parking lot was flooded and you could not get into the marina to get your boat until the water went down.

My stepson is a computer geek, loves playing computer games, and really loves fishing. 
I won on several counts with him. 
And both of us enjoy just being out, catching is icing on the cake.
I don't know when Grapevine will drop below flood level, but I am anxious to go.
