week of April 28, 2013
Rhandy and I started Sunday out at Lake Cypress Springs for some crappie fishing. We didn't kill them but I came home with enough filets for a few dinners. We caught a few giants, too!
Tuesday David came out and joined Dale and I and things started out pretty good on a main lake point. David hooked a good one but it spit the hook. Later Dale caught one at 9 pounds and 12 ounces. It was a fat monster. I was sure it was over 10. When David netted the fish the hook fell out of its mouth. We spent the rest of the day catching one here and one there on a variety of techniques.
Rhandy and I headed straight to his honey hole and things started slow. After about 40 minutes of no bites, Rhandy finally hooked a 7 pound 2 ounce bass and got it to the boat. We stayed around his "go to" hump but never got the action we had seen the previous day. We did get a couple of DD-22 fish pitching around stumps. Off we went to try several other good spots without success.
I had planned to fish Thursday morning a half day with Dale, but yet another strong cold front made us think better. I appreciate Dale's flexibility a lot as I don't think either of us would have enjoyed the 30 mph winds and plunging temperatures that were expected.
I'll be back for more soon!
