Sunday I fished with the two J's. We headed out at first light (it was cold!!!) across the lake
towards the ranch house heading to the vineyards. I put my boat on automatic pilot and she (J1)
caught her first bass on crankbait. She fished the front of the boat casting top water with no
success. Meanwhile J2 was fishing off the back of the boat with jerk bait and landed a nice size
bass. When we got to the point he fished with a River2Sea crawdad and had a fish on his line without
knowing it because it was swimming towards the boat he landed that one easily. The vineyards, being
the lake is so low, did not show a lot of activity. As we crossed towards Big Island we found a lot of
birds and balls of bait. The fish were all between 35 and 45 feet deep. As we headed back towards
home we stopped at a spot I call the 'crappie tree' and put out two markers. We fished between the
two markers and ended up with some large crappies.bsp; As J1 was jigging for crappie she landed a nice
salmon. The day before Albert and I had fished this same spot and every drift we had picked up fish.
Dario and his family wanted to catch catfish. For the first hour or so he was a little disappointed but
after his next two fish which were a fifteen pounder and a ten pounder he had a smile from ear to ear.
He used hotdogs for bait. It was a good fishing weekend and we ended up catching a hodge-podge of
different fish which made it interesting. 'til next week......................................good fishing!!!!!!
