3/28/20 Self-chartered Freshwater Fishing Trip

Four fishermen had a good time on Yegua Creek (off of Lake Somerville).  The bite was not as good as the 3/21/20 trip.  Randy Rowley caught two white bass and one dink largemouth.  Burl Fulenwider caught about a seven pound carp and a perch.  Chris Rowley and Luis Almanza caught one white bass each.

3/21/20 Self-chartered Freshwater Fishing Trip

Three fishermen had a great time at Lake Somerville and Yegua Creek.  They tried to go up Nails Creek via Randy Rowley’s boat but the entrance was too skinny (1.2′) and he was bottoming out.  They tried another Yegua Creek but got the same results.  They succeeded in going up Birch Creek but had only one bite.  They then drove to Newman’s Bottom and fished by Yegua’s creek (on foot).  Chris Campbell caught 19 white bass, Randy caught six, and Burl Fulenwider caught one.  Chris and Randy caught their bass on 1/8 oz. crappie jigs with Mo’ Glow 2″ grubs and Burl caught his on a 1/4 oz. Roadrunner.

3/11/20 – 3/14/20 Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trip
Four individuals participated at a Port O’Connor Self-chartered fishing trip on March 11 to 14.  Winds were not too bad although tides were a little strong.  We fished the jetties, ICW, marshes, and cuts.  We used soft plastics, VuDu shrimp, topwaters, and cut crab.  Our catch included 2 black drum, 7 redfish over 30 inches, multiple sheepshead, and multiple trout.  We did keep a few fish to eat, some of which we had at Josies Mexican Cafe and some that people took home.  Some of the highlights were:
  • Zack Tumlinson catching a 30″+ redfish on a rattlesnake topwater
  • A doe watching us near the old coast guard station
  • Three Whooping Cranes that flew behind our boat and landed less than 100 yards away
Fish of note were:
  • 44″ black drum – Zach
  • 40″ redfish – Zach
  • 30 – 38″ redfish – Yuri Gonzales
  • 30 – 38″ redfish – Jim ‘VuDu’ McGee
  • 30″+ redfish – Zach
  • 24″ Sheepshead – Jim
  • 20″ Sheepshead – Wayne Weilnau
  • 18″ trout – Zach

In addition to the fishing, we enjoyed great fellowship.  Thanks to Wayne for opening up his home for the group.

3/2/20 Self-chartered Freshwater Fishing Trip

Four fishermen mostly enjoyed the scenary on Lake Decker.  We fished for crappie but didn’t catch any, although we did have a few hits.  We switched to bass fishing and Chris Campbell caught six on a crappie jig!  Randy Rowley also caught one on a Fluke.

2/22/20 Self-chartered Largemouth Bass Fishing Trip

Three fishermen mostly enjoyed the scenary on Lake Travis.  Randy Rowley caught a dink on a lipless crankbait.  Jim McGee hooked a nice bass but lost it a few feet from him.  They had no other hits.  They ran accross a school of shad with probably some white bass below and above them.  They jigged there for a half hour but had no customers.

2/17/20 Self-chartered Largemouth Bass Fishing Trip

Three fishermen mostly enjoyed the scenary on Lake Decker.  We caught no bass and had no hits.  On the way back to the boat ramp from the dam they ran accross a large school of shad with probably some hybrids above them.  They jigged there for an hour but had no customers.
