    Hats off

    Good thing that swan was "trapped" by the line allowing for the rescue. Good on him.

    Rapalas may go up to $20 for a #5 Original Floater.

    Once the price of fuel goes up, so does everything else.

    Reminder ...

    Found a lone star tick on me the other day. Felt it walking on my leg. I usually wear pants in the brush. No more shorts.

    Probably farmed eel. Not sure the exact specie, but Japan has their own as does Europe.

    Martindale morning.

    Lots of bullheads and channel cats in there. If you don't have worms, just use Gulp! (whatever form) close to bottom, but keep it moving. Maybe resting for 20 seconds, then reel a couple feet, repeat. The catfish love those fake baits and so do the turtles.

    Martindale morning.

    I think I saw you guys there fishing the covered southside (of the boathouse) shoreline corner. I was wondering what you were fishing for. I thought maybe panfish or catfish. The water in that entire area is like 4 ft deep. Those carp are moving all around so by trial an error, you may be better off focusing where they funnel or collect and chumming heavily over a couple of days to prime the area.I would imagine this would be better fished from a shoreline though, but there its tough as its overgrown or private.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, its going to be one of those "don't fish for them and you'll get one" kind of thing. I'm not a bait fisherman, so it'll be on some sort of lure. Can't wait to start using top waters.

    I don't know if they are that rare or that they are that finicky. I imagine they would take bait off bottom. They feed in the same manner as carp do. I am still trying to catch my first bowfin. That is what I hoped it was and I know I'm in the ideal area.

    Second one I've ever caught. First one on Martindale while crappie fishing at about 5 lbs (25 years ago). This one, Welland River at 12 lbs. When I first hooked it I had no idea what it was until I saw it, because it fought long and hard. Think a carp, but more "vicious". These are strong fish! It hit a jig/twister fished close to bottom.

    Yeah, definitely a early morning / later evening kind of fishing. By 10 am it was starting to roast (no wind) and packed it in. Speaking of rudds, in the 20 Mile Creek system, they are either rudd or gizzard shad, but they are in spawn mode as well. Lots in the current at Bailey's.

    I have a 8 ft light action rod, but its got good back bone. I thought I had a huge sheephead on at first. Played it in fairly quickly and the net was ready. I was mindful of the 3 lb test leader on 6 lb test mainline. There were lots of carp around me in the past 2 weeks, but first time I had one go for the tube.

    what will hit in the Welland River whilst crappie fishing.

    All about the taxes. Election campaigns ain't cheap.
