Needed brake tag on Jeep and knew Causeway Dave would be open til round 5 and had few errands to run ahead of impending Tropical Storm,so we opted to visit Causeway Dave(knew AJ Fishes was off de water this week).Chatted with Dave and turns out he had supplies of fine custom lure he and AJ been spanking big specks with and he offered me a bag of 20 for $12,not a bad deal,particularly since lotta popular soft plastics been coming outta China and according to Dave,some of the colors kinda fouled-up PLUS been viewing plenty of AJ Fishes You Tubes where he has been HAMMERING fine specks,using what I jokingly call 'Speck Spankers' and Dave suggested the color he offered me,I would call it Motor Oil,like the soft plastic worms dat we used to toss at Parish Line Canal chunky bass.Take a look,Causeway Dave said he gotta lotta dem lures!!!

Hope all fared ok with this devastating storm luckily we emerged with minimal damage and sent a few texts to fellow fishing buddies. Hope to be able to get out relatively soon and distinctly remember post-Katrina finding plenty fine fish in nearby Lake P. We most assuredly dodged huge billet know that few neighbors had trees toppled over onto their roofs and sorry to hear about that. Older son stayed nearby and we got in touch with him and he was able to lend a hand using our serious work-horse of a chain saw, Husqvarna Rancher 450 with 20 in blade to chop plenty storm debris. Hoping to head home tomorrow am be glad to lend hand to neighbors and need to get Kubota tractor to drag big debris out.

Headed homeward via I 55 and think gonna have smooth sailing til MS/LA state line at which point will take whichever back roads passable. See lotta Pike Energy trucks staging up to head to LA. Hope and pray power gets restored as promptly as possible. Gotta give kudos to MS College School of Law as they allowed up to completely fill nice ice chest and stopping in Hazelhurst for few supplies. Stay safe everyone and thank the Lord for minimal damages and those with major damages hang in there. We do not call our beloved State Sportsman’s Paradise for nothing.
