Southern, This is the sac my podna caught last year at Lake Martin.

Made a trip to Fausse Point yesterday to try out some of my new jigs i've been tying.. Tried just about every color that that i had but no keepers.. Picked up the bass gear after about 3 hrs of sac fishing and caught 2. One was a 16in 4 pounder and a 13in 3 pounder.. That was it. Had 2 buddies meet up with me and had 5 nice bass.. Water was dirty but fishable.. Tried my jigs in the Basin last year and did great. Can't wait till next weekend.. Gonna hit Gravenburg and Jackass bay and possibly Oak Ridge.. Good luck to all..

The bite is on people!!...Took a trip to marsh island today with a couple of podnas to fool around with some gar..Caught 4 from 3ft to 5ft. Then we decided to hunt down some reds but only caught small ones..A LOT of small ones on fresh shrimp under a poping cork in oyster lake..Then took off to a honey hole around southwest pass on a reef and busted up the specks on electric chicken under a poping cork..The first speck was 4lbs!!..We ended the trip early because of the dam oyster boats muddyin up the water..Ended up with 4 gar,23 specks,1 flounder, and 2 reds All off the same reef except the gar..Was an awesome trip!!..Hope to do it again next weekend!..sorry no pics,camera got stolen..No proof but believe it or not,doesn't matter!..I hope yall have some luck like we did..Good luck and be safe!

Stayed up most of the night fixing my 40 yamaha. Finally got it runnin right! Hit the road to the Wax at 3:30 and met up with a couple of podnas..1st time there and I wanted an early start.Launched my 16ft tunnel hull in the Intracoastal and was nearly ran over by 2 tug boats and about 20 idiots haulin butt with no lights on thier boats!!..After what seemed forever, got to the spot my boys led me to and ran my boat into some elefant ears..I was never told I had to get out the boat and hunt standing up in 2ft of water..Thats a NEED TO KNOW kinda thing dont u think..Anyway,afer swattin about half of the states mosquito population, the war was on..OMG did them boys do some shootin!!..The only problem was that the shells I loaded my gun with were the same dam shells I left with..I saw maybe 8 teal in 3 hrs and i couldnt shoot at any of them..Aint that some luck,but it gets better!!..About 15mins after we left,my motor DIED and wouldnt start for nothing..So if any of you guys seen a flat bottom boat skippin across the water with a 25ft rope tied to the front,that was it wernt for this guy,I dont remember his name,I still be out there bein pulled by lil 25 merc.So dude if your reading this THANKS AGAIN!!...There are not enough people like you in this world..And I promise you one thing,next time I see someone stuck in the marsh or in the middle of the wax outlet,im stoppin!!I hope you guys had a good laugh at my hunting and be safe ..TeddyT

A comment titled: Bream For Bait in response to a report titled: bream for catfish?

That is not true. Bream are not a gamefish and have no size or possesion limit, therefore it does not matter how they are caught. They can be caught in fish traps, cast nets , rod and reel, however you want. I've been through this with wildlife and fisheries because I use bream for flatheads and big Blues. I was told by a wildlife and fisheries agent that there are no restrictions on bream because they are not considered a gamefish.

Live bream fished on the bottom carolina style works if there are flatheads around. Best in the evening and right at dark.

If your game is processed and frozen, it does not matter how much you have in your freezer as long as it is cleaned. Being deer , ducks, fish, whatever..
