    Gearhead and I went to Badin this morning. bait was easy, slight steady wind all morning. Bite was a little slow but Gearhead did put me on I decent fish. at 21.7 it is my new PB. Dont laugh. I took me a million pieces of bait to reach this fish but I hope it is a signal that big fish are in the future. As you can plainly see from background we fished near old whitney:wink:. water was 42 degrees I think, not that many people out.

    bait has been easy in Garr Creek, I dont even look at fishfinder, I throw net on areas I see that shad are hitting top of water. sea gulls were heavy this morning in there. I have been saving up on shad because bait eludes me half the year...lol.

    Nice fish man, don't be ashamed, I've only caught 1 blue bigger than that! I'd take 20lbers all day long.

    Jerry's all geared up and ready. He has some nice equipment to catfish with. It was a pleasure fishing with him on his boat .It was a little cold but we did manage to catch some small fish and one good blue.The wind was wrong for some of our better spots. All in all it was a good day on the water for us .I enjoyed the trip with Jerry. We'll do it again some day im sure.:wink:
