This will be the second attempt of a fantastic fishing journey on Lake Texoma.  In my haste I deleted the first seven page report, in error.   The other report started as such, hoping I can recall all the points of previous report.  It was really good but oh well... After recovery from left, complete left knee replacement, but having fished some, I was on a 35 boats trip out of Highport on the 24th.  I actually left out of Little Mineral, with three of the best fishermen of that entire group, or thats what they lead me to believe.   Let just say they had fished before.   I had borrowed a 100 mph rain suit from a friend, and wearing the top, prepared for the wonderful day of fishing.  It was a blustery early morning, filled with damp dew, no actually it was raining like heck, with 35 mph winds.   Lucky for us, I have an off shore Triton, which kept some of us dry, depending on what side of the boat you were on...I charged into the high waves, headed to the spot where lots of fish were located, nonsence, I headed to somewhere out of the wind.   Somehow when I got there, I realized surely I was in the best spot for fishing, as there were some 15-20 other boats with the same idea.   Great minds run in the same direction.   Mind you, I am carrying everything, you can imagine to catch fish, rattle traps, lead line, slabs, rigs, top water, deep divers, nevermind you get my point.... We were into about a 30 minute start, maybe longer, as I was fully into my story of how great a guide I was, how I had caught fish earlier, how long I had fished, and so on, when suddenly was rudely interrupted.   Its hard to be humble some times, as I have great gift of gab, lets just call it BS.  Anyway, something out of the ordinary occurred, we suddenly had two fish on the line at the same time.   I am wondering, what the hell is that?   Am I dreaming?  Pinch me!   Having lost some of my confidence from such a long time between fish, forgot the next move.   Time seemed to pass slowly, but I gathered my composure, and did the first thing necessary.  I grabbed my teeth which had fallen out from surprise, headed to the location where the net was, just trying to remember where I had stowed it.   Did I mention time seemed to have stopped, but thankfully the experienced fisherman, doing their job, hollering at me, I got the net, and boated the fish.   Wow, huge, fish, every bit of 2 pounds each.   You should have seen it, high fives, high fours for me since I lost a finger in 1973.  Jumping, hollering, getting over my complete surprise,remembering what it was like to boat fish.... Glad we had weathered the storm to get there, just to be hit suddenly by another burst of rain.   Did I tell you I had 100 mph rain gear on?  Did I tell you it was tops.  Yep everything from my waist down, damp, no soaked.   Well after all the celebration, we settled down to looking for the next great action.   Believe it or not, I was able to get through my entire life story, before we had another hit.   But there it was...a wonderful set by the fisherman, powerful pull on the line, more time stands still or slows, what a day!  Hung up!   The best part of the day, was that no one lost any more fish, did not lose any equipment, great rain, the Captain managed to get us back in, in time for lunch.  I quickly dryed out, and we had lunch, fried fish, with all the trimming, great time with other guides I had not seen in a while.   You really dont realize how much fun we had, even if the fishing was tough.   There was a lot of fish caught that day, with the biggest catch, a 12 pound mess, and prizes for most, biggest, so I sat and ate fish, with my group.   Do you know I will probably remember this story, just as much as the days I caught tons of fish, well lots of them anyway.   It really was a tough day, but I was so glad God had healed me well enough, that I could do, guiding again, and just being on the water, even with harsh conditions, I loved it!  Fishermen have feelings like this all the time, regardless.   Anyway, know you were expecting more...Oh Well, what thats?   Better luck next time.   Fins up.....JD.    CrossCreek Guide Service- http://www.striperfish.com
