Hey guys. Live from Bon Tempe...6:16 currently and have 5 on the stringer. Fish count so far is 9...got here at 230. First cast produced a fish. A few 3-4 lbers hit within the first hour. Now it's slowing down. Would have started this when we got here but it was non stop action. Using different color pb, worm, nymph, etc...m

Finally done cleaning the fish. It was on and off wind today. The first 2-3 hours, it was non-stop action. We were getting hit after hit. I had at least 8 LDR. One of which spooled my line pretty good. I estimate it to be at least 4-5 lbs. However it came unbuttoned.

After 5 it started to slow down. We tried switching it up but no-go. I wish I had my big camera with me. A lot of birds were out. We saw 2 baby bald eagle soaring above. A vulture came and perch on a branch right behind us. About 20 feet away. It was being attack by 2 crow. Pretty interesting sight. We can hear the vulture hissing at it. That lasted for at least 30 mins until another vulture came to give it some backup. Then both flew away.

All the fish were really feisty. 2 of the ones we kept were 18 inch 3.2 lbs and a 19 inch at 3.5 lbs. The fish we released were jumper and put up a great fight.

Anyways, total count for today is 10. Until next time.
