Slow

We went Yesterday afternoon, with not much in numbers, but that was made up in size. We caught skipjack behind Pickwick dam, and after a trip to the local doctors office to remove a Sabiki hook from my thumb went to the main lake after blues.

We caught my personal best on skipjack head using jugs. It was a blue that weighed between 60 and 75#. This fish was HUGE!. Of course I probably lost a client due to the fact that as soon as the hook was out and he snapped a photo, it went right back to the water. Oh well,he has heard me say numerous times that I will release any fish that big, if it is not a potential record, can't say he wasn't warned.

After that we managed to bring in 12 blues between 2 and 5# and 5 channels around 3# apiece. Am supposedto go again this evening, so will post either tonight or tomorrow.

i have GOT to go and find a digital camera so I can post some pic (LOL)

Tight lines!

Oh well

You know, he wasn't that reliable a customer anyway.

I really thought about donating it to the aquarium, but I didn't have anywhere to put it either way. You don't catch one that big every day, but I did feel good seeing that fish swim away. After I caught my breath LOL.

honey-doo

I didn't get to make it to the lake Sat OR Sun. Wife talked me into replacing the bathroom floor Sat, and had to work Sun. Talked to a friend on his cell phone, said he was catching channels in shallow water, probably shallow eating bream fry. He said that they were biting like crazy in muddy edges. oh well!

I'll try

If I can find someone with a scanner, I'll post it.

That was the first time I have EVER had to go to the doc with any kind of fishing injury, and after the local anesthetic wore off, I could not even tell it hurt But before, OH GOD did it hurt! And this from someone that carried a 3/4 inch piece of chanel cat fin in the side of my thumb for a year and a half.

Skipjack have been in around Pickwick for about 2 months now, so they should be around Cheatum. If you are going to be down this way, give me a yell and I will try to hook up and show you a couple of spots.
