Well, my friends, we have a lot of fish in our area, both trout and bass. Most of them are too small to be legal. This happens every year when they first show up in our area.
I was talking to my friend, Rayburn Goodman, who operates Yellow Bluff Fishing Camp. Rayburn reported most of the bass are 13 inches this week. They grow fast and by the midweek most of them will be legal size.
One fisherman reported that every drop he fished there were plenty of fish and he had to release most of them.
Fishermen who are releasing the fish are helping to conserve the resource. The fish will grow and be legal in a couple of weeks and you and your children will have a chance to catch them.
I believe, considering the reports I am receiving from fishermen, we are going to have a good fall season.
Here’s another plus for our anglers. My son, Donny, has seen a few large golden head crockers. That’s a good sign because we have not had crockers in our area in several years.
This is the right time of the year for some good fishing off shore. I think the hot weather has had a large effect on our inside and offshore fishing. Hopefully, the weather will start getting cooler. I’m sure that will improve our fishing.
Also note that Goodman has reported having a good supply of live shrimp and minnows.
Theses are the catches from Yellow Bluff: Jimmy Ginn fishing with Joey Franklin caught 16 trout, four bass, six flounder; Philip Bohannan fishing with Gary Futch landed 11 trout, two bass, and four flounder; Pat Bowen and party caught eight bass and nine trout; and Charley and Sindy Phillips landed 10 bass and 11 trout.
Well, my friends, if you do take a fishing trip, remember to always keep a tight line.
