General Discussion / Re: Sinking line
« Last post by Puck on Today at 10:03:58 AM »
I have a few type IVs that I throw routinely.

A floating fly, minnow, shrimp, bug, etc. works great with sinking lines.  Let the line go down to depth, and as you work the fly, it dives with the pull of the line.

I like to work bendbacks out of the kayak with my sinking lines. 

In the surf, at least an intermediate is required to keep the line from wrapping you up with the wave action.

Casting is completely different from a floating line.  You are not going to pull a backcast while the line is burried.  Get the line to the surface with a roll cast of spiral cast, and only then can you pull the back cast.

These sinking lines are also a lot thinner than floaters, allowing you to cut through the wind.

Talk to Don H.  He is a recent convert.

My 2 cents

Is a kayak required for this trip or is anyone bringing a boat that I could trade beer for a ride?

Q wants to run his boat.

Send him a note.

Trinity River, upstream of Lake Livingston, Sand bass,March 7th, 2015


The place we're going to is called Harmon Creek Marina. 
Check out the website: (http://www.harmoncreek.com/ )
 
Harmon Creek Marina had their annual white bass tournament last weekend and I found out from the owners that it was "too early" - that's probably good news for our 3/7 weekend.

Easy paddle (boat required, no bank fishing) - no current, sheltered from the wind.

This is in the boonies - no place to go eat nearby so bring all food. Maybe we'll have a fish fry Sat night?

For a fish fry we'll need someone to bring a deep fryer, oil, etc.

Lots of room for camping, nice creek/river with, hopefully, enough fish for everybody. By the way, the owner told me this is also the beginning of the crappie run. Also, rumor has it that there are some stripers in there.

Who knows, this might turn into a regularly scheduled "official" TFF outing if this impromptu test works out.

 From HOUSTON - Take I-45 North from Houston, to EXIT 113, toward Riverside. Take Hwy. 19, 10.7 Miles, until you come upon Chevron gas Station on right side Then you will TURN LEFT at next crossover onto Wood Farm Road, and FOLLOW THE YELLOW MARINA SIGNS straight to our gates.

I picked up some Type III sinking line for my old 7 wt. Thought I'd give it a try for both lakes & bays. I've never used full sink before. Any advice, thoughts or ideas on using it?

Guys, if you don't sign up now or at least give some indication of interest in staying overnight, we are going to cancel the beach house we were looking to rent. If you are interested, please indicate ASAP!!

I have to drop this one. My surgery is May 11th and I don't think I should be out wading quite so soon afterwards. Y'all have fun and be careful! 

BTW: No, you may not borrow my boat since I won't be using it!!!  :P
