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!!
