Getting Closer

I took my head into the shop today. Supposed to be done tomorrow afternoon, (tomorrow being Thursday).
I am seriously hoping that my boat will run much better when it's done. I believe that we got the leaks fixed.
Now all I need is a motor and I'll be set to fish. Then I can get back to telling you what they are biting.

Went out Saturday and caught 7 fish to 2.5 lbs. on beetlespins and chartruese spinners in about 3 hours. Really went to see if I had fixed my boat, I hadn't. Seems I have a warped head. I've been told that I must have carberator problems, as the fuel in the cylinder is what actually cools the engine, not the water pump.
The lake is still 8ft. low but is clearing slightly. Still time to catch those spawners.

As soon as I can.

As soon as I can fix the blown head gasket on my boat, I will fish again. As soon as I can fix the 2 holes in my boat, I will go fishing. Well, I already fixed the head gasket, and with the help of my neighbor Andy we have fixed 1 of the holes. Should be able to fix the second hole on Friday. I am looking forward to this weekend.
I have it on good authority that the Crappie are biting at the Canyons, in the grass. The bass have been biting on
stickbaits, topwaters, early and red Rattletraps. The spring bite is in full swing, you better hurry. It wont last long.

Take a child fishing!

If you have never felt the thrill of seeing your grandchild catch a nice bass, or view a perfect sunset then I can tell you that you are really missing out. This is the easiest time of the year to catch a bass of a lifetime,or to make memories with your son, daughter or grandchild.
Today we just threw out a Rogue and a Long A and just shook our rod tips, then let it sit and BAM, there's a bass on it. Set about 50 yards of the shore, by the hydrilla and cast over it and shake it and wait. It couldn't be simpler and you can hardly miss as hard as they are hitting them.
Take a child fishing, it will do your heart good.

Hcbb Annual Tournament.

The first annual Hidden Cottage BB fishing tournament was held last weekend.
Fishing was good but the fun was excellent. I caught 12 fish and lost the most fish
trophy to Devon, the biggest fish trophy to Bryan (The Gorilla Man ), but I did tie
for the smallest fish and received a trophy for it. Many fish were caught on a variety
of baits such as swimming jigs with pearl white grub tails, rattle traps, roadrunners,
football head jigs with craw trailers and rogues. Fish are located in grass in 2 to 5 feet
of water. Fish seemed to be in patches of clearer water more than in stained. The lake is still
about 8 feet low and temp. is running from 56 to 63 degrees.

Contractual Obligation Post

We find ourselves in another fishing season, and we are really going to enjoy
this one.
My personal best
She is still swimming today.
It's shaping up to be a great one. We were catching fish like the one pictured here in February... February man!!! What can March, April and May have in store for us. I can't wait, and I suggest you not wait either. Book your stay now or regret it later.
