With all the layoff thunderstorms going on around me I decided to turn the phone off and hit the lake this afternoon.  Pretty much sat in 1 spot midlake today with a Jig in 27 feet of water about 25 yards in front of a dock that seems to produce for me this time of year.  Ended up catching 6 fish total with largest around 5 pounds.  Had a decent fish on but got caught up around an underwater cable or something down there deep.  Never saw the fish.. line went tight and snapped on me.   :eek:  

Was a wonderful day to be out there.  My truck was the only one in the lot at 360 when I launched and when I got back around dark.  Did see 1 crazy wakeboarder out there as usual.

Dropped in at 2 pm and was off at 630pm... Calmed the nerves for a few until I turned the phone on and saw all the voicemails!  

Peace.

Did u fish up north or mid, south? I sat in 1 spot across from city park. Tossing a 3/8 oz football head jig. Some casts took 15 minutes. Sure was relaxing.

I would agree with the slow and deepwater access. Minimum 10 feet and this to me means finesse. If it's windy -- it's next to impossible. If I have a loop in my line and have to put the line in the water to avoid the wind -- I'm just not going to feel the bite. It's ax extremely subtle bite right now. Every once in a while a reaction bite, but I'm dead sticking and just dragging as slow as possible and stopping and waiting for the slightest of bumps. And even then, I'll reach down to take a drink--and what do you know the line is moving. I'm not even feeling some of the bumps. Maybe it's the 15lb test ;D

Chad,

I saw a good picture of you in a magazine today. I was waiting on my wife in Walmart and picked up "Hill Country Magazine" and they have an article about fishing lake Austin and it has a nice shot of you with an 8 pounder. You may already know about it but if not you might want to pick up one for a keepsake.
