I received a tongue lashing (not in a good way) for being a slacker and not posting this earlier. Been a hectic year as it has for most people I assume.

So hereís to getting out of the grind and wetting a line, no matter the species. But we have a preference here obviously b

Post them SLAUNCHES up boy!!

In! I'll have my line in the water for the first time this year on Saturday. It's been years since I've fished as much as I used to but now we have a little 27 acre lake across the street from the house and I have no excuses.

My uncle caught this one last Sunday at my favorite fishin' hole...

But it's a pond on his ranch, so it's like hunting a high fence place...

and we all know how folks on here think that's like not even fishing at all...

First bass of the year - New Year's Day.

Setting the bar high - this may be the smallest bass I have ever caught on lure.

It's always catch and release unless we are moving them to another pond on his place...

Point being, don't hang a big fish by the lip like that, there is a great possibility you will harm the fish.
Your pond and your fish though .

Spinning real, if the water is dirty you can get away with heavier line.

Might have been a Spot...I caught it in a small creek/ditch that feeds into lake Houston.

It was 6” long and that may be a generous estimate

It can be good. It is a rough area, I've never had any issues but some friends have. It gets so choked with grass it can be tough. Running a chatterbait over the top gets em pretty good. Flipping the edges is what I normally do and it usually works, not so much today. There's some big ones in there. I'm going back to the bayous for awhile.

My dad caught 2 10ís out of Sheldon Reservoir some years ago. We used to live on Garrett Rd just down from there. We fished it every day this time of year. Havenít fished it since 1991 when I graduated high school. Some fond memories of that little honey hole!!

I don’t care what you throw this time of year if it doesn’t have red you are throwing the wrong color. Switch to shad colors when that shad start to run

Managed to pick up first place and split big bass at our first time on the water in 2021. Heck in over 6 months.
