Launched at 360 and fished the Mr. and Mrs. Bass Club of Austin club of Austin tournament from 7AM to 3PM.
Only had 3 bites all day - a 5lber, 3.5lber and one that barely measured.
All fish were caught on watermelon red 1/2 oz fooball/rock jig with Nichols Lures Watermelon Red Creature bait http://www.nicholslures.com/salty_creature_baits.htm
as a trailer. Targeted any piece of rock I could find. The wind really started picking up around 10AM. Sure enough my cranking battery died after the wind picked up.
Spent an hour rewiring my battery to one of my trolling motor batteries. Been putting it off long enough -motivation for me to install a battery switch in case this happens again
Felt like I was fishing at Amistad, when I reeled up the 5lber, a wolf pack of about 4 others with with her. I tried yelling at my wife to pitch to them, but it was too windy for her to hear. ;-)
Finished the day up fishing across the 360 ramp before the weigh in. I saw an Academy Envelope floating in the water and decided to pick it up. As luck would have it, there was a fishing license inside. Guess it was our lucky day, won the club tournament and found a fishing license floating in the water. ;-)
If anyone knows Timothy Fielding from Austin, please give him my phone number posted at http://bassmanaustin.com
and I'll make sure to get his license back to him. If I don't hear from him soon, will just go ahead and mail it back to him.
