CCAguns and I decided yesterday to hit some of my favorite T-Funky spots today(was actually toying with idea of chasing reds and bass in duck ponds in Lake Catherine area)and we launched fairly early as we knew bad weather most likely was gonna hit us around 11:30(timed it perfectly)and first spot,fish magnet,only produced fat sac a lait(I rarely target them this time of year but know of a few deeper spots likely to hold a few)and we each missed a few fish and CCAguns released smallish bass and we started our excursion,never finding water anywhere near what we like to toss for fish in.Each of us missed huge fish and I am still flabbergasted over how I missed huge bass that made a wake as he gobbled up Spro frog without getting hooked!!!Showed CCAguns a few choice spots(woulda been hard to blind-fold him as he took his boat)!!Ended the trip early as we could sense nasty weather about to hit us and each of us dropped two fish on ice,thanks,CCAguns for fish donation!!GB3 and I might hit Bayou Lacombe tomorrow,hope we get chance to check his crab traps and possibly toss some spinnerbaits at reds in grassbeds!!!There is absolutely NO DOUBT in my mind,based upon recent trips,that nice reds anywhere up to about 27 inches are awaiting a fine spinnerbait tossed their way!!!T-Funky needs a day or two to settle out and fine sac a lait are still out and about and first fish I hooked today was fine sac a lait and fish prior to him slipped hook and was even nicer slab!!!They do not usually go too far from their spawning grounds,basically just retreat to deeper water,NO LIVE BAIT needed for em!!
