In the past week, been able to get out to Lake Bastrop for some important duties, chasing shad and catching cats. Monday 1-12-09 was the best day I've had in quite some time. 11 channels, little over 28# total. The ice chest was near running over. On Jan 8, the bite was not as many, but still good quality fish. If the weather cooperates, may be back out on Friday.
