A grub will catch any predator that swims. That includes stripers, wipers, crappie, bluegill and flatheads.
Most of us can tell stories about seeing a bass eat a bird, a duckling, a snake or some other critter that’s around or on the water.
My plan was to target fish moving on and off the beds, or on them when I was able to find one.
Barometric pressure is important, but it’s also complicated.
I’d like to suggest some things that will always be helpful regardless of when you go fishing or what conditions you face when you do go.
Mike found good fish in practice but conditions changed. He tried to change with them and was successful for three days, but then things didn’t work out on Sunday.
My guess is that it’ll take an average of at least 20 pounds a day just to make a respectable showing and 25 pounds a day if you expect to do anything on Sunday.
The good thing is that I didn’t put myself in a deep hole starting off this year like I did the last time we competed on the Sabine.
Come next week we’ll know if I was able to exact my revenge on the Sabine River.
It’ll be me against the Sabine River. I’ll give no quarter, and I’ll ask no quarter.
