Not sure why I seem to be unable to attach pics and definitely subscribe to adage dat pic tells 1000 words!!Launched de Southfork bright and early this am,searching for bass and possibly reds and only managed one of each,fat bass probably close to a lb,inhaled H20 Express Mullet Wake Bait and missed a handful of fish,most likely bigger bream and did manage 23 inch fat red,wish I could attach pic but no big deal.Water in Lady P pretty putrid,probably extremely fortunate to nab any reds today and this one musta knocked Jann's Netcraft Spinnerbait for a loop as I tossed dat baby into thick school of mullets and felt distinct thump,set hook and when I boated red saw hook imbedded in side of its head,lucky it did NOT break free but think combo of 17lb Suffix Advance Fluro and high-speed Lew's baitcaster made relatively short work of this chunky red that looks to have belly full of mullets!!Hoping to hit Hopedale tomorrow with CCAguns,getting ready to take hibernation nap then get in tough with him and clean bass and red.Grandson loves watching me clean em!!

Yep,CCAguns,need to teach him how to clean game but he is tad over 3 years old. Too bad doggone Hopedale water a mess,Lady P a total mess right now and ya would not believe the shear volume of mullets in Lake right now. My educated guess on both weight of dat chunky bass and red right on track and red shade under 5 lbs bass right at lb and red had huge Pogey in belly bout 5 inch Pogey😜👍🐠Maybe some day next week we might hit Hopedale. My schedule relatively light til about end of August.

3 years old? Well he can wait a few years to learn. Good to teach the early - by 7 or 8 he’ll be ready!!!

CCAguns,Ya might be right about why the frog bite was non-existent today on Bayou Lacombe!!Me and Buddy Melancon tried to find some willing bass today,found exactly three and one was chunky,the other two were much smaller but eat well!!Jr was ecstatic,asking his Paw Paw to clean dem bass and see what dey been chowing on-all three had empty stomachs!!Looking forward to getting ya back out there tomorrow early before de heat takes its toll!!Buddy and I looking forward to getting with ya on some duck pond trips out in Chef area,love sight-casting reds and with the winds forecasted for all of next week,Ole Lady P gonna be a mad ole gal with stirred-up water,NOT suited for sight-casting.Think I mentioned to ya dat I ordered Do-It mold for making spinner baits and ordered the thicker stainless wires,the ones with complete ring at top,much stronger than the ones I got from Jann's Netcraft.Saw neat trick to making skirts,using a pen for tool to hold collar and small wire to pull skirt material through pen and fashion fine,custom skirts!!!
