“Oh Lord, grant me vision. Oh Lord, grant me speed.”

I was singing along with The Rolling Creekdippers’ cover of Gram Parsons as I backed down Holiday Inn ramp. Looking at the deserted street, I’m guessing I’m first cuz I sure don’t feel last. After reading J.C.’s report, I forewent the usual north shore route and immediately crossed over to the south shore. I started cranking and chatterbaiting til the sky lightened.

I shut off my lantern and cast a Baby Brush Hog at some submerged wood. I felt the slurp and reeled down praying, “Oh Lord, grant me speed!” The Speed Freak reel caught me up and I r’ared back into a perfect hookset. Oh! My 7’4” MH was a tight parabola as the big’un dived under the boat. I started hollerin’ as my behavioral filter collapsed with a rush of adrenaline. I rapidly brought the fish in for a close quarters battle. The cavernous maw opened and I seized the lower jaw. I stood, feet apart, knees bent, back arched, head back, arms thrust upward, rod in one hand the big’un in the other and whooped my war cry.

I passer-by captured the moment. I gave her my phone number and she promised to text it to me. I made a couple more casts and then it was deja-vu all over again! Another good bass ticked the BBH. Nearly identical battle. Oh Lord! I received the text pic of the first fish and sent her the bass selfie of the second fish. Nice!

I switched to senko and got a couple more that went three pounds each. I’m not bee-essin’!

Y’all know I’m a just a goofy geezer in a little plastic boat. So when Austin’s most beautiful twenty year old jogger smiles and says good morning as she effortlessly runs by, ranks right up there with catching a giant. Another great day on a fantastic lake.

Shout out for all the vets, always remember NAVY stands for Never Again Volunteer Yourself!

So you can go out on Lady bird with say a Pelican bass raider 10e and a trolly motor and get around just fine? I am looking at one and want to know its limits. I can't afford a bigger bass boat at the moment and don't want to settle for some used, rusty old craigslist boat. BTW, Nice catches friend

Yes, the “two-man buggy” is perfectly suited for Lady Bird (formerly known as Town Lake). The aerial pic of my buggy is a good example of standard rigging. Note that I have two batteries, but I can’t recall ever resorting to the back-up battery, even after being on the lake over 8 hours, running from I-35 to Mopac and back.

Do be mindful of the rowing sculls. They tend to get out of their lane so to speak.

OK, another talent to add to Jeremy's growing list. He is a singer in addition to a bare chested bass whisperer. What is it you can't do my friend. Great report and pictures.
