  1. Beautiful weather but no luck with Bass or Crappie. Switched gears and caught 10 - 15 Bluegill. There are times you just can't beat fishing with a worm and a ...more bobber! 😁

      I came home, turned on the TV to see a Bassmasters Tourney, they actually stock Bass in Texas, are there any lakes like that here?
    2. Mark Merlin 0
      Nothing today for me. In two days I talked to 6 or so other Anglers, only one caught a decent Largemouth. This isnt the lake to fish for big Bass.
