    Not much activity in this forum. I guess you guys are fishin to hard. I went fishin with the son-in-law Sunday. We put in at Spadra and caught a tournament limit of bass. Also we hit a channel jetty with some crankbaits. First cast I caught my biggest Drum ever. I thought it was a big striper the way it pulled off line and headed upstream. Next cast I caught a nice spotted bass. then on the third cast I caught my first ever Bowfin. It weighed 3.9# and put up a heck of a fight. I had a hard time gettin my crankbait back from him but I released it to catch another day(I hope).

    Bass are doing good on Nimrod . I fished a little over 4 hours yesterday and caught 13 bass. :cool2: 11 of them would have been keepers and 2 dinks. Just no bigguns though .This cooler weather moved them shallow on wood. They've been hitting crankbaits and spinnerbaits on shallow stumps for a while. Early last month they were on rock points.
    Ready for the fall crappie bite to pickup , then the bass fishing can go.:big_smile:

    My son and I went with my dad to Piney this morning. Caught a mess of crappie. Nothing big but it was fun.

    I usually fish with a crawfish lure -- catch everything from Drum to Bass to Gar. May be getting to cool for the bait now though...

    Fished the Red River down here around Doddridge this weekend. Caught a few nice whiteskins and a few good size drum. Anybody know how to prepare drum?

    Hey there tomnt369,

    Are you the same "tomnt" that used to live in the Blanding area ?

    If so, Dang, it IS a small world - ain't it ?

    If not, nevermind - go ahead and ignore the incoherent baying of this old CatHound.

    Anyway, here is a link you can go to for a Drum recipe:
