Today was just another tough day on the Big-G". I had a Father and Son for an all day trip and it was DANG tough all day. We did a lot of moving around today and was able to catch a few in some of the areas we stopped to fish. We focused on deeper eel grass in 8-10 ft. all day with Producer Swimbaits and 3/4-1 oz. Rat-L-Traps. The floating grass was an extreme thorn in our side today making it very hard to fish a lot of the better areas. When we were able to find an opening to cast without fouling we would get hit, but those were far and few in between. We still had a fantastic time on the water and was able to get a few fish to make our hard work well worth it. Have fun, Mike Carter

As we keep progressing into the spring bite one pattern that always rewards me is fishing visible cover like lay-downs along the banks, rocky edges that jet out from a point or boat docks that touch creek ends along a drop. These objects are visible and this obvious structure... read more
