Another cat on a jig. Almost same place as two weeks ago. What's up... full moon nuts ness. Just got away for a quickie so I don't have scale.. didnt even ...more have a net. Just went with it. Large jig the wind was up. 14 to 17mph. Working outside edges of docks. These lakes are sand pits. So docks are the only real structure. But this is weird. I've been fishing here for ten plus years.. never hooked a cat on a jig.. now two big boys in two weeks and the same dock just a little differences in location. Love it play nice with others when its possible..
who can tell me what kind of fish this is.. this is where I grew up. recently became an bass angler. we are around 100 miles out on the search for albacore. came ...more across a small kelp bed that broke loose from somewhere south. anyway kelp out this far is protection from the sun. sometimes its holding sometime not. this is where the captain gets mad. cause I underhand cast from the bow as hes setting his drift. so before anyone even has a squid or Chovy... on a hook my real is singing that incredible sound. he wasn't mad for what I did. cause it was perfectly fine under and from the 30 some off the water. what he was mad about is the night before I told everyone I was from Nebraska which wasn't a lie. I just failed to mention that I grew up there and had deckhanded on several commercial rigs in my younger days.. so here's the caption pissed cause at this time I already had 11 albacore two yellowfin tuna and now who knows what kind of fish... ok a hint it has the color yellow in the name this is not a tuna.its a member of the jack family
I love my job. Many times I get sent out to the boonies. Usually there is a body of water. In the area. Problem is get approval to fish it. I normally try and do ...more something. Any kind of chore. But here lately not the virus it has gotten harder and harder. Mostly because people have became sue happy.. everyone wants it all. But they don't want to earn it. Just give it to me. Same way with trades today. Lazy and messy, honestly are younger generation take everything personally and have no morals or ethics little lone any backbone.anyway I found this pond today and had a blast.. mostly because the farmer thought he was going to see me get skunked... he said good luck water level way down and the freeze three years back. I know but not everyone was in the flood zone.. I hooked 6 or 7 in 15 mins. All on scum frog. Nothing bigger than 2 1/2 maybe 3lbs. But it was fun saying goodbye and thanks. No I didn't go without giving Jeb. My frog.. honestly it now had a hole and was taking on water. But Jeb happily excepted and said next time your in the area.. and as hard as it was. I didn't even try to sale him a new roof. Next time I'm in the Blair area hopefully two three years from now the bass will be exceptionally fun.. love you all. Remember play nice with others when its possible.!!!!
