  2. All my fishing friends, be careful out there if you are flipping in the bushes. This guy almost paid me a visit. I was looking down where I was flipping my creature ...more bait and this guy was about two feet from me. My son noticed it just in the nick of time.

    2. Thats for sure Capt. Morris, it about made me mess my pants. Way to close for comfort!!!

Fish for mostly largemouth but enjoy catching crappie in the summer time. Really anything that tugs on the other end of the line is fun to catch.

Fishing Favorites

  • Species Largemouth and crappie
  • Waterway Big Sam and Toledo Bend
  • Lure C-rig is my fav, then crankbaits, shakey head jigs, football jigs and senkos. I am learning to fish deep structure more. Still working on that first ten pounder. Personal best is an 8.3lb.
