Nightfisher
I'll second what Tony said.

Nightfisher is a good,hardworking,outdoorsman that I am proud to call my friend.

I've learned alot from this guy.

You know when it just happens,you know when all of a sudden you start hearing reports of fish being caught after a long period on no activity?

You wonder who that was that was out there on that magical day when the fish first decided to bite?

Well,you found him.
It's Nightfisher.

Nice Mess
Caught a few myself on the same setup. They turned on late afternoon when the sun fell behind the clouds...They just turned on all of a sudden...It was a lot of fun.

When?
Daytime or Night? I was already heading there Saturday just because it's close and I need to take my boat out, but I might have to get after them! Do you ever try using shinners out there? I have fished that area a few times with not much luck. Maybe that will change Saturday. Congrats on the nice catch and thanks for the information.

Skunked
Looks like they turned off Sunday Morning. We tried all the canals north and south of the dock. Caught 2 fish. We found a lot of grass but the north west wind had pushed so much water out, most of the grass was on dry land.

Looks like maybe they are only catching in the afteroon. We where the first boat and only boat at the launch. When we left there where 5 people pulling up to launch.

Fyi. Looks like they are trying to already catch crawfish on Pervine Rd. Ate lunch at the landing and saw about 10 cars on the side of the road.
