So if you get your Christmas shopping done and still have some vacation time to burn, you ought to get your ass down here.. All it takes this morning is Big Balls, and Overalls.. The kind that still keep me fired up about going fishing. But I re-rigged my bait and made an even longer cast back to the stump and got bit again.. But even I have been catching some good ones here lately, so you certainly have a chance to catch em as well. Those things are stacked on them brushpiles down there.
But Zapata county rarely gets enough snow to build a snowman.. But if you look close you can see that there is three to four inches of accumulation on top of this trailer.. Quality Bass Club is in town with about eight to ten fishermen, and I am sure I will get a report on what happens today this evening. And both trips we did not wear out a clicker counter, but we did manage to catch some quality fish. It was a long cast and I wrote it off to who cares anyway.. Granted, a lot of these boys fish here a lot and are excellent anglers. We were close to the Tigers and were fishing some brush piles, and once we picked up the crappie poles, it was over..
And I found one sweet spot about the size of the average back yard that had a bunch of fish in it.. A summer spawn is not at all uncommon in these parts.. We were running a bank that we have fished a million (hundred) times in the past in the back half of the Salado. Speaking of the API, registration will be at Beacon on Thursday evening.. Even the shallow rock piles have fish on them, especially early.. I finally made it back on the lake yesterday for a couple of hours, and we ran into a few fish, but nothing to brag about.. I hope you get to spend some time with family and friends, and I hope your plans include remembering what this day is all about. My Sun, My Sun, Please make me aware, That your balmy presence still exists in my life.. Well he has had a couple more and so has John Adami. From what I hear, the fish are concentrated in some areas, and scattered out in the rest. Good numbers of four to eight pound fish being caught.. And I apologize for no name and weight on this beastie.. Water temps have rebounded a bit to the middle sixties the last two days and under the Veleno bridge it was 65° yesterday . There are very few people in town currently, and I have not spoken to many fishermen. We are going to be having a few good days the rest of this week, and I am thinking some nice prespawn fish will be caught the next few days. I'm headed to the ranch for a few days, and I just wanted to to wish you a Merry Christmas. To pick at the exfoliating skin, as it peels off my arms, After an overexposure.. And sweat like a twenty dollar hooker, In the back seat of a Nash Rambler.. Last week I was saying how Matt Reed had a monster day. I have some wood projects in the shop I need to finish before Christmas.. Here are a couple of fish that were caught during the blizzard.. But I have seen a lot more pics of decent fish as well.. And that is what is in store for the next week it appears.. I'd like it a lot better if it started out at seventy.. Especially if I hear any more reports like the one above.. The white bass are stacked under the Veleno bridge, but few crappie are being caught under there.. Cause I am tired of going south every time I want to catch some fish.. Keep in mind that if you do go to the Hedieona, there are a lot of hazards to contend with.. You know that big old bridge support in the middle of the river up there? I think it is best that maybe we separate the women from the men so that this kind of stuff doesn't happen.. I'd much rather stay at home and cook and watch the kids and wash women's underwear than deal with all the bullshit that goes along with having a job.. Last Thursday I fished with a buddy in the Salado and the Hedieona, and we caught them pretty good.
