Did not plan to go fishing today. The forecast led me to believe that Friday was my best iffy shot. Did my usual morning things and checked weather.com. They had reduced the chance of rain to 24% and their future radar showed nothing for Georgetown during the day. Turns out they were right. Didn’t make my first cast until 10:20. Pulled out three rods to start. Baby Z Too on ⅛ oz jig head, 2.8 Keitech on 3/16 oz jig head, and a Super Fluke Jr. nose hooked without weight. Started with the Baby Z and didn’t get bit right away but started catching one here and there. Pulled out a Whopper Plopper for a few casts for nothing. Decided to rotate the three other baits and caught one on the 2.8 right away. Kept rotating and caught one on the Fluke. Stayed with the 2.8 a while and went back to the Baby Z and caught a couple. Kept trying to get the one bait that was best. Started catching on the 2.8 and caught some better fish. That smallmouth hit the 2.8 twice. Stuck with that quite a while and continued catching. After 1:00 the 2.8 bite slowed down and they seemed to be nipping at it and just ball up the bait. Switched back to the Baby Z and started catching. Clicked 26 by the time I quit at 3:20. Two were hard pulling drum. Caught many Guadalupe Bass which always seem to be right on the bank. Many decent fish mixed in. A comfortable day to be on the water. Two bass boats, one was just running his motor and didn’t fish. No wake boats. One ski boat that wasn’t where I was fishing. Water was 83º- 84º.
