I went fishing Saturday at Lake Brittle. Few were catching anything, and no one that I saw, from sunup to early afternoon, when I left, were taking anything home. I felt blessed to bring in a couple of largemouths that were keepers. I tried catfishing with two poles rigged with livers and topped with hot dogs, but no takers. The crappies stole some of the hot dogs. I kept the third rod working various lures, which brought in the bass: both from the bottom, one deep, and one shallow. Lesson learned: if you want to go home with something, then you had better be prepared to fish anything and everything! You never know which lure or bait will work best on any given day (in the summer, anyway).
