Give me about a week and get the electronics down and come on.What day do I need to be there
I trying not to leave my kids much.Long way from fishing from a home made wooden boat with a cane pole.
I love chasing the reds and trout. With the limits now, time traveling and fuel it’s cheaper to hire a guide out of Hackberry.My grandfather ran from Corpus Christi down the KR shoreline to the land cut in wooden Vannoy boats. Now they have to have $80, 100K+ boats to do it.
CB, that stuff is pretty handy now days. I don't lake fish but the ipilot and stuff on the bay is awesome. It will drift your same tracts, ancor you, etc. When we wade my buddies raise the power poles and drive the boats behind us with the trolling motors. The boats are never more than 50 yds or so at most behind us on a long wade.
By the book it will run 50 mph, that’s actually pretty slow to some rigs my fishing partners run. Look up some footage when they turn loose a tournament.It looks fast.
30 mph is pretty fast on water CB especially if there are a few ripples. Maximises your fishing time I guess.By the book it will run 50 mph, that’s actually pretty slow to some rigs my fishing partners run. Look up some footage when they turn loose a tournament.
One has one that will run close to 70 mph.
I cruse about 30 mph if you ever see me running 50 mph something is after me.
Ya. I like catching even if I throw them back. I know a lot of people are pretty disappointed with the low limits but the freeze did hit it hard. We have seen significantly lower fish numbers and sizes... but still the same amount of people. You can still catch fish no doubt but it's not the same.I love chasing the reds and trout.

Fish upstream from where ya put in, then you can always drift back downstream to your vehicle.. unless you're on the S. Llano river down near Junction Tx, where you have to paddle both directions lots of the time.We used a home made 14ft Jon boat when I was young. Fished only the river and only as far as 2 of us could paddle.
Congrats!Enjoy and be safe!Supposed to pick up Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning.
