Launched at Quinlan Park today at 6:30AM with my Dad in the kayaks. Decided to fish a few hours, then leave.

Time: 6:30AM-9AM
Weather: 83 degrees, overcast. Winds light at 5MPH, picking up to 8MPH by 9AM.
H2O: 72.3 degrees, 3'-4' visibility.

Started out across from the ramp, and ended up having a fish steal my bait on the first cast.  ::) That would be a common theme throughout the morning.

Caught my 1st dink about 15mins after that fish that stole the bait.

Took awhile to get another bite, got bit around 8:45AM. Got 5 bites in 5 casts under 1 tree, lost 5 Rattlesnakes.  :mad: Pissed me off. Finally got the stupid fish about 5mins later, only 12" fish.  ::)

Slow day, caught 3, my Dad caught 5. My biggest was 13", no keeps. All on TX-rigged Rattlesnakes.

Lots of idiots on wakeboards early, driving on the wrong side of the lake.

Just going to stick to LT, I can't figure LA out.

Hey rmv, I saw you today... I was the guy fishing solo in blue/white Skeeter. You did better than I did... only got one, but it was a keeper... barely. Like you it was on a weightless T-rigged Rattlesnake, but I had a split shot about 18" up the line.

That gunshot sounded pretty close, didn't it? :eek:

Well after reading these post I don't feel quite so bad, but it wasn't a great day for me either. After saying hi to Regan this morning I did manage to catch 5 fish, dinks but atleast I caught a few. It was looking pretty bad for me this morning. My fishing partner did manage to catch one that went about 4 lbs around 11:00am. Oh btw we were the guys in the blue and white sprint. And waterskiers before 7 am , those guys are dedicated.

RMV, there's a post in another section on how to properly rig a rattlesnake that will prevent losing the bait as often ;).

I agree on LA- it's kicked my hiney pretty good this year.
Just gonna stick with Stillhouse from here on out.

The only right side of the lake for THEM is above Mansfield or below Longhorn Dams!
