April 1, 2012 – a few random thoughts and an old Falcon video.

Well spring is finally truly here.  It is hot, the trees are all budded, the mosquitoes are out, and I am having to mow the lawn to much for this early.  But there are side benefits of course.  The fish are biting every where, and the bay is warm enough to wet wade, which is on tap this week.  There are good bay reports coming from most places right now.  There is still some off colored water is some places, and of course the wind is on it’s 25 mph rampage right now, but there are trout and reds to be caught.

And locally, most, but not all, the bass have spawned, and it is time to find the big girls resting on the points and channel turns off the main spawning coves.  But there are still lots of our fish shallow in area lakes, setting up my favorite time of year, how do you like to catch them?  This time of year you can catch them shallow, especially early and late, you can flip if you like, or you can target the bigger fish deeper who are post spawn.  So no matter what your preference, now is the time to be on the water.

I thought I would share this video with you from last year on Falcon Lake.  Sorry there is no audio, but the little guy in the front of the boat kept using the “f” word.  But I guess that is what happens when you break  8lbs twice in one day and add a 9’3″ to the mix.  What a trip that was!

So there you have it, I wasn’t to excited!

I am excited about the coming week.  There will be some flippin and pitching, and then some Gulf.  It will be one of those decisions made solely based on the wind.  And while the wind won’t stop me, it will tell me where each day, but no matter what I am headed to do some wading.  After my last trip to the Gulf it is time to make up for a couple of bad days where I made some bad choices.  The best thing is it can only go up from there.

So until next time, which should be tomorrow night and several other nights this week, thanks for reading my stuff.  I appreciate everyone who stops by, and I love getting your comments and suggestions.  We are currently looking into live broadcasts from the boat, which should be a real trip.  And I intend to broadcast a video fishing report from whatever sources I can find  every Thursday.  Thanks for stopping!

Good Luck and Tight Lines!
