Taking a Calculated Risk Today-Lake P 8 19 22

Knew we had a slight window of opportunity and took advantage of very slight(6:30-8:30 time frame-am)and only emerged with one stout fish,a flathead catfish dat took up entire length of my chest and tipped de scales at 9.54 lbs!!!Had two diehard duck hunting buddies with me and good news is the thick Salvinia,so prevalent in Cane Bayou,is much less prevalent and easy to navigate through.I wanted to show my buddies the newly-emergent grassbeds in Lake P but huge storm that dumped bunch of rain on us prevented checking out the redfish hotspot and we did have to hunker down in small trenasse in No Boat Bayou as huge rainstorm hit us and we waited til Lake P was not that rough to make our way back.We had a probable red snap off and another gained his freedom as I was frantically trying to get trolling motor going to make the fun fight a tad more tipped into my favor!!!At least we did emerge with an ugly specimen but once I cleaned up de beast,it cleaned up fine!!Can't wait to grill the filets and they look incredible!!Teal Season round de corner and we saw ZERO teal but did see nice flock of trophy mottled ducks,probably at least 8 in flock!!!

P.S. Flathead fell victim to fish-slaying Lunker City Shaker 3.75 in Jungle Jazz(perhaps the absolute best croaker imitation out there)!!

We spotted a flock of blue wings this morning in Bilbo lake. Hopefully a lot more are on the way.
