CCAguns and I did a short lil Bayou Lacombe bass trip today ahead of my 10:30 am hair cut appointment and we launched fairly early,though we might wanna launch tad earlier next time!We both started tossing frogs,I tossed fine Spro frog and he tossed Ribbit frog(love de way dem legs wobble)and neither of us managed any hook-ups,though I did have more than likely big ole perch smack frog,just dey aint big enough nor quite ornery enough to smash frog and get hooked.He swapped over to what I think he called Yellow Magic,pretty much a carbon-copy of PopR and we both tossed popping bugs and ALL I got rewarded with was a STINKING(emphasize stinking-he really smelled bad)alligator gar that I initially thought was big ole bucketmouth!!!CCAguns put on bass-catching clinic,ended up boating 4 with feisty goggle-eye and missed HUGE bass and I ended up losing decent bass that SOMEHOW managed to get ensnared in my doggone trolling motor,not sure what transpired other than MY bad!!We had a good time,told him next freshwater trip gonna be T-Funky,where my personal best 5 plus lb bass came from,tired of water that AINT moving and bass dat do not totally cooperate and lotta folks say T-Funky hard to fish but I tend to disagree!!!Got few choice spots dat typically give up some 3-5 lb bass,gonna blind-fold CCAguns and show him some dem choice spots,possibly next week,winds,weather,water quality permitting.Hope all have a Safe and Happy Fourth and don't have a fifth on de fourth!!

Forgot to tell 'em about the neat wildlife we got to see yesterday, Mande. In addition to all the tree ducks, an eagle, some gators and a big flock of lesser Canada geese that we motored right past without them flinching, we rounded a curve in Bayou Lacombe and watched a big bobcat scamper away toward a house. Really neat to see that bobcat in the middle of a lot yesterday morning. Had a great time as usual!

Yep,CCAguns,I did indeed forget about the neat wildlife,guess I see neat displays of wildlife that I sometimes take it for granted and dat huge flock of Canada geese was quite impressive.Had great chat with Frank Muller,our deer club president,and told him we gonna head to lease soon to work on huge ruts in plenty of the roads out there.Can't wait to show ya MUCH more productive spots on T-Funky and she is quite a gem and I have some DEEP-diving crankbaits that might encite a riot among the 3-7 lb bass out there-hurts losing a big bass and know ya lost at least 2 chunks just yesterday.My personal best have all come from T-Funky and easy to see why-she offers much more tidal movement and has plenty of deep water plus lotta folks have impression dat she is hard to fish-got me a few spots that typically give up 3 lb and up bass and gotta blind-fold ya first(LOL).Just wrapped up gunwales installation on 2002 era Chapman and wanna check out possible deer hunting spots in the areas we fished yesterday,archery-only but not a big deal,got some big ones in there and saw pics of true beast that young fellow got,6 point,that had a neck the size of horse!!Hope everyone has a Safe and Happy Independence Day!!GB3 fishing with charter guy today,too bad I have NOT had chance to get him some jigheads AND CUSTOM swimbaits!!
