My neighbor is home for his one week off.  So we went out yesterday for a while to set out jugs and a training session on dead sticking.  He was not disappointed.  Having been a panfisherman all his life, he’s quickly becoming a striper addict.

We launched about 10 a.m. or so from High Port after picking up lil smokies from Brookshires.

We were going to set out jugs and then fish but when we pulled out of High Port, we could see the water moving in Buzzard Cove…..and we stopped.

Smaller fish would hit cohos and sassys.  We drifted out to 35 feet of water and started dead sticking.  We each had 2 rods and the action was so fast we had 2 and 3 feet on at a time.  Within 20 minutes, we had our 4 overs with the biggest being 29 inches. 

I really like the new ReAxtion Lures bubble bellies for dead sticking.  They are solid.  Not split like the fluke and they outfished the flukes 3 to 1 yesterday.

We decided to take a break in the action and go throw out the jugs.

Then we headed up off the end of North Island to dead stick.  I was surprised that there were no birds working out in the middle of the lake.  They are usually very active in that area during November……but…..

We were going to meet up with Capt Kurt but he sent me a message saying he was “on fish”.  I knew that would be a delay.  [biggrin]

So, we picked up on some birds and headed west.  Fish were running up and down the TX rocky shore line east and west of High Port.

We caught several box fish.  I wanted to check out Big Mineral so we rode out there.  Stained water for sure.

Came back and pulled jugs.  Met up with Jimmy and George then headed in to clean fish.  Awesome day!!

Nothing better than fresh fish for dinner!!

Sounds like a good day for everybody. I'll be around this weekend and sure do want to take some of those Electric Chickens off your hands. They look just right. Bubble gum has been working for me with these foggy cloudy days. I say that after I stocked up on the bubble gum flukes at Academy as they get hard to come by this time of year.

Floor mats look like the snap together mats that come in foot squares at Lowes and Home Depot.

Great fishing trip and story!

You post really great reports, and then can't resist ruining them by posting a catfish photo(or two). [smile]Why? Paokie, I thought you were going to delete offensive photos.[confused]

My neighbor is a great guy.  He's from Minnesota and is dying to catch an alligator gar.  He said he knows how to take the 'loin' out and it's delicious.  He said all he needs is an axe, a hammer, and a sharp knife.  I'm in.  [smile]

Western, if you smell a bit like catfish, you'll catch more stripers.  [smile]  If you smell like stripers, you'll catch more catfish.  [smile]

Birds....oh yeah.  David is 33 years old and has eyes like an eagle.....he can spot birds 5 miles off. 

Reminds me of Prune Picker being able to spot birds from miles away.

I can see the end of my boat.  [smile]

We saw 3 bald eagles over by GBC.  At least, David spotted them and then showed them to me.  

I thought they were hawks or something.

"...3 Eagles..."
That's kewl...wish we were up there, not even sure we'll make it back up until January.
I don't get around much, but seem to only see them in the Buncombe, Limestone, Cardinal area.

Be sure and have David verify any Chickens you see sittin' in a treetop before you shoot'em for Dinner. [smile]

Will do.  I hear Kahuna might make a grand appearance at Cardinal prior to Christmas.  Maybe he'll hand me off some ducks as I drive by.  I'd invite him to go fish but I'm leary of having crips on the boat.  [smile]
