Flat Tire Fixed... Went Fishing!

Had a flat tire this evening.  Luckily, the Tire Store fixed it quickly and even better, did not charge me. Still had enough light for a quick trip to a nearby pond. Used a Four Weight Fly Rod and a COAF Guadalupana. Worked the shoreline and caught a Bass and a Sunfish. Fun stuff!

Fly Fishing This Round

After fishing the mid-morning at Bethany Lakes, decided to go back in the afternoon with fly fishing gear. Caught Sunfish using the COAF Guadalupana, then a Bass on a COAF Damsel Fly, and then another Bass on a Near Deere. Followed by a couple of Bluegill and a Fingerling Bass on the Near Deere. Great time fishing the local lake. Sure beats work!

Senkos Worked Again

Fished Bethany Lakes around mid-morning. Went with baitcasting gear and used Gary Yamamoto Senkos instead of the Gander Mountain Brand ones. No strikes after an hour of fishing, and then lost a Bass while bringing it in.  Then, started hooking up... ended with four Bass. Largest went about 14" in size. Fun suff!

Did see little Bass chasing bait fish in the shallows. May come back later and try catching them on the fly with a Guadalupana!

Switch Rod and a Senko... Swenko This Round!

Took out the Switch Rod and tied on a Gander Mountain Senko, and then fished Bethany Lakes this evening.  Missed several Bass but after a short while was able to time the hook set... managed to catch eight Bass this round. For reference, calling this Swenko Fishing! Fun stuff!

Plastics Worked This Round...

Made it out to Bethany this evening for a round of fishing. Fished with Gander Mountain's Senko style plastic worm. The worms look like Gary Yamamota Senkos but are lighter and have a hook groove molded in the body.

After getting used to casting the lighter plastic worm, was able to hook up with a few Bass. Lotta fun... ended up catching and releasing eight Bass!

Only One This Round...

Fished Texoma today. Used the Jon Boat and mounted the outboard on to it, then trolled for a good while. Had a few strikes but no hook ups before finally hooking one small Striped Bass.

Really nice weather with moderate winds and cool temps. Great to get out and about; sure beats work! Till next time... Good luck and good fishing!

We Are Ready...!

Good thing we doubled up and fished Saturday and Sunday. Our day jobs has the work week clobbered, so no chance of getting a quick trip in until Saturday (knock on wood).

No worries, though... looks like others are doing well fishing the community lakes and ponds despite the recent rain and cooler weather. Also, hearing good things about Texoma and the Striped Bass bite!

Also, in a short while November will roll in and the Blue River in Oklahoma will be stocking Rainbow Trout soon!

Moreover, the Golden Croakers are on their run on the Coast, so Galveston is looking really nice, too.

So, with all things considered, we need to be ready to take advantage of any opportunity to fish. To ensure we are ready, a quick check of our fishing licenses shows:

  • Texas Resident All-Water Fishing License is current!
  • Texoma Fishing License is current!
  • Oklahoma Non-Resident Fishing License is current!
Now, we keep a close eye on any break in the work schedule, and "pounce" as soon as we see an opening!

All for now and Good Luck and Good Fishing!

Struck Out This Round But Too Nice a Day...!

Went out again to Texoma in hopes of more Striped Bass. This round launched at the Spillway Ramp. First time putting in here; things looked promising but ended up without a fish.

Calm conditions with a slight wind from the South. Different from the North wind that was kicking up the water yesterday. Had a tough time finding a windy point.

Did get four Striped Bass to chase our lute but did not get a hook up.  No worries; got a good workout in... paddled to Eisenhower State Park, back to the Spillway Ramp, and then to the Dam face itself.

Afternoon Kayak Fishing at Texoma

Saturday... headed to Texoma after the morning rain passed for a round of kayak fishing. Put in at Eisenhower State Park; worked a tandem Bucktail Jig and Clouser Minnow on a windy point. Managed six Stripers trolling the point. Fun stuff.

The Bucktail Jig had a White Fluke added; Clouser Minnow was fished "as is". Looked like the Stripers  wanted the Jig!

Wind was brisk and the water was rough at times; definitely glad to have the PFD on. Cool temps but not near as cold as last Saturday.

May need to give it another go on Sunday...!

Struck Out at Kroger Park.... Blue/White Clouser Minnows

Checked out Kroger Park this evening and struck out. Had three strikes but failed to connect. Only had about 45" to fish; no worries though... was glad to get out after another week at the "salt mines"!

Did notice that a Weather Alert went out for tonight. Looks like our area is in for a few thunderstorms. Was hoping to make another run to Lake Texoma to see if the Striped Bass were biting.

With the weather as it is, going to play it by ear. Did tie some Blue/White Clouser Minnows in preparation for the next round at Texoma.  Was running short on the Blue/White Bucktail Jigs that worked last week. But, Clouser Minnows will do in a pinch!
