I had the fortune to get on the water today. Didn't quite make the falling tide but did catch it on the rise. I didn't catch many but I did catch one. I use a light rod and tackle for the challenge and the action. I had a good breeze pushing me ahead of the slow current. Drifting along, I hooked a 15lbs catfish. At first, I thought I had a small bass. Then it surfaced and that's when the fight began. It wasn't exactly like a Nantucket sleigh ride but that fished dragged me all over that little bayou before I got it landed. That was soooo much fun. I'm going to put in again tomorrow to catch the falling tide. Maybe this time I'll catch some bass.

I went back this morning and I thought I'd catch the falling tide I missed yesterday. The water was high and didn't seem to fall at all. Terrible. Still caught two small bass and a blue gill. Slow day, so I put them back.
Keep at it.|

I've put my boats up for the year unless one of my regular buddies gets a bug up his butt to get on the water. I don't go alone this time of year. Well, not unless I really *have* to...
