Decided late last night dat I would forego Lady P solo fishing trip and instead hit de ole T-Funky and celebrate 61 years young today!!!Wifey and I have been extremely busy with both Medicare as well as Individual Health Care Enrollments and my birthday comes as great time(in between Duck Splits and right after end of Medicare Annual Enrollments)and got up tad later than I would have normally gotten up,got Wifey to assist in removing Chapman pirogues from Southfork and already had her gassed up,had brand-new Johnny Morris Carbonlite 2.0 fine baitcasting rod mated to Lew's Mach baitcaster(incredibly light and ultra-smooth operators)and also had Slab Daddy jigging pole and high-speed Lew's baitcaster with MirroDine(just to see bout possible chunky T-Funky bass nailing hard plastics).Launched at 3 Rivers and water was gin-clear but very low and had to give ole Southfork healthy shove to get her launched and was kinda worried dat on way back might have issues getting ole gal on trailer but no such issues occurred!!!.Headed S to fine section where I initially considered trying for T-Funky slabs but used just one pole today,dat fine Carbonlite and she is sweeter than Tupelo honey!!!Ultra-light,medium light weight with fast action,hook set is incredible!!!Nabbed a few T-Funky bass,missed a healthy one probably close to 3 lbs!!!Decided to make my way N up to Bogue Falaya(land of Kentucky bass)and missed good one and nailed small guy,ended up with 4 bass and missed a few,never gonna be 100% but HATE missing T-Funky chunks!!!Gad I opted for T-Funky.Got one more day at Ponchatoula Wal Mart Medicare/Individual kiosk and looking somewhat forward to Second Split of Duck Season,though need to spend quality time on deer stand and possibly chase specks,reds,more T-Funky bass and slabs-met gent who was twisting my arm to chase T-Funky slabs and know a few choice spots to nab bunch dem black sac a lait!!!
