Fish dont seem to mind wind, tides

Hello my friends, Tight Line Jr. here. Well, the wind blows and the tides are high and fish are still biting.
I got reports from the tri-county area. The fish are biting off the hill and from the boat. Todd Hensley and party caught the limit on trout and bass out by the Halfmoon Marina. Larry Gady and son Gary caught 10 spottail bass and 20 trout fishing out of Planting Hammock. Renee and Bill Hunter went out fishing with Mindi and Steve Ansley from Dock Supply and they landed 18 nice trout.
One of the original Midway All-Stars, Olin Fraiser and his wife caught 30 trout. That’s what we call the limit.
Charlie Floyd and Terry Smiley netted 28 trout and four spottail. Them boys had those fish in the pan that night. Big Jimmy Leander Barrett and Albert Anderson caught the limit on sheepshead two days running, and that was off the dock.
Big Jimmy said he saw a guy catch an eight-pound trout off the bridge south of here. Allen Fillingame caught the limit on trout two days in a row.
The dock tour will be stopping by his house for a fish fry.
Boo Hall and I landed three sheep head, four black drum two spot tail bass and a flounder on the dock tour. Yellow Bluff reports having live shrimp and minnows.
So remember what Ole’ Tight Line says. Get out there and go fishing, and if you do, always remember to keep a tight line.
I always say hit the docks, keep a sharp eye, and watch that cork go down.

Your Buddy,
Tight Line Jr.
