The plan was to camp at Stubblefield campground and fish the river for white bass. The whites were running last weekend pretty good.
Campground was full.
Plan B: Drive through the National Forest find a place to camp overnight. Found a spot about a 100 yards from the lake probably a mile south of FM 1375 bridge where we paddled out.
My buddy caught 4 large mouth and lost a few including a huge bass Saturday. I caught 3, lost 3. One of them pulled line out and straightened my hook on my little jig and came off before I could see it. Back to camp for the night, steaks for dinner over the fire. Sunday morning had some coffee and back at it.
Slower day Sunday, only caught 2 but one was a personal best. 24", probably close to 9lbs!!!! It was a tank!! Largest bass I ever held! Fishing Sunday morning I got to watch 2 Bald Eagles doing an air dance with each other over the lake. To cool.
Life is good!
