Full day exploring the Pedernales. Since the wind was going to be from the SW we launched at our Hwy 71 ramp and paddled up river so we would have the wind and the current behind us as we fished our way back. On the water at 7AM, we paddled and portaged for about 90 minutes, occasionally casting at something good looking or some swirl in the water. Water is pretty low but there are a lot of stretches with good water in them and river is still flowing. Staked out at 8:45 and had pulled pork breakfast tacos (have two whole hogs on the smoker for the big game) and coffee. We began working our way back down river working the deeper water pockets and bluffs. Sun came out around 10:30 but the wind turned in our face. Boy did that make the fishing harder on the way back - I am getting too old for this. We were mainly throwing jigs and square bill crank baits although we worked drop shots and ned rigs through out. We also tossed small silver slabs off and on to check for any sand bass. Wind made it tough to move and fish and it was hard to keep a tight line but we had some luck and ended the day with 16 cutie-pies, 2 fun fish and one good-un amongst the four of us. Also caught 3 crappie and one lost sand bass in the process. Don led the way with 12 of those fish. Blake and I each had 5 (Blake had the good-un and we both had a fun fish) and poor Curt said he just went along for the breakfast tacos and workout. I was able to land another bass on the ned rig so that was a positive as well. Long day on the water, we beached at the ramp just after 3:30. Not sure I will get any fishing done today as I have a lot of cooking to do. Keep your lines tight, be safe and have a blessed day.
