Have to share this fish story.....and it's TRUE! Yours truly and my Bill took a spur of the moment trip last week-end, down to my brothers at Lake Texhoma - Texas side - after the call..."the fish are biting"! Stipers (bass). Indeed they were. Brother George had caught numerous Friday morn and we munched part of them for dinner Friday night.
He and Bill caught 14 Saturday morn with Bill catching the biggest of the day at about 4 1/2#'s. We had fish again Saturday night. Very good, deep fried! We had to come home Sunday and on Monday eve, brother caught one monster......18 pounds, 34 inches long! (pix above). Went on to catch more on Tuesday and Wednesday....two weighed in at 11 and one 10. Weather over week-end was cold, raining, blowing, but the fish didn't know it and sister-in-law Chris & I went to the mall! Although, she does fish some. She caught several after we left. Fish must be really hungry!
Hope all of you are doing well. Regards from the home town! Georgia
