Geez Mike, how did you get all those nice pictures taken while catching fish when those guys who went to the Sunfish spectacular didn't take but a few telephone photos?
I am figuring that they were too busy pre-feeding the fish "gulp" laced scaries and drinking beer!  Huh?

Since I had to work most of the day Saturday and missed the "Spectacular" ...I thought i would take my frustration out on the local waters.  First off the grass has not been cut.  I saw No Snakes.  Now I don't know if that was a good thing or not. Maybe I just couldn't see them because of the over growth...who knows.  Fishing was good.  The bass havae settled into a post spawn mode.  Not real aggressive but when they are feeding they ate.  I tried using a fly tied by Hunter Swope that had some good flash and chartreuse but no luck  So I just happen to try a large popper to see if I could get the fish to get aggressive.  Well that worked and I caught some good'ns.

Here is the first on a popper.

Close view of same fish.

This one is doing the Speckled trout head shake and use your close up viewer here.

Pretty nice fish!

Here's another from the exact same spot as the last.

Here is what they were eating.

This one almost looks like a Kentucky with the marking around his head.

Another.

Your getting the picture ..er pictures here aren't you?


Just letting you guys see the WOB is still cooking and just be aware the weeds were really a huge hassle.  There is now some ground thistle that is really causing some line trouble.  Once your in it ...well you are in it good!

One photo above is giving me some trouble loading...don't know why but it was a good pic when viewed closeup!  Oh well.

Just spoke with Quigs. He is correct the smoke will be present this weekend.  The thought here is maybe you guys know of a different more protected area to fish in the Galveston area.  I suggested Armond Bayou and he came up with Bolivar cut behind the peninsula.   Armond might get blown out and be dry after the smoke starts it thing.  What do you think...got any ideas. Front comes in on Friday night and doesn't clear until sunday evening.  Monday will be fantastic!

The good thing about Christmas Bay is that it affords a protected shoreline all the way down the bay on the eastside.  The marsh area to the north is ok in the wind too. But when it goes over 25mph there is nothing like a good book and a cold beer in the easy chair back home! 8)

A friend's buddy bought Jose's old off-Shore center console (The Spanish Fly) and fishes it out of Rockport! What do you bet the value of that boat just went up. Jose's Show and personality was always 1st Class.

"Via con Dios, Jose!"
