I just put a post-it on my computer to choke you next time I see you. I knew I wouldn't remember, so I thought it prudent to write it down.

I've got nothing for that.

I guess I'll see you in Ft Worth later this month.

A female northern BG, good one for our ponds at 11 inches and a pound and a quarter.

It's all relative to one's goals.

An 11" LMB, 8.5 ozs for a Wr of 77%



A 9.5" HBG from the same pond, 17 ozs for a Wr of 143%. Wonder what it might've looked like if it wasn't blind in one eye?



Sacrificing the LMB to give the edge to the HBG.


I went fishing today. It was good for me.

Great example Tony and nice looking HBG. I have both BG and HBG in my pond and use the same BG Wr chart for both. Is there an HBG specific chart?

Unfortunately no, Bill. There was talk of creating one a few years back, I was involved in the effort, but I didn't make a very good showing of it at all.

Well done T - pretty impressive body condition considering you're just coming out of Winter. LMB doing their job!

The spawn in East Texas is on. Two questions: The fishing was slow one day, then the air temperature climbed and the sun came out in the afternoon. After that, the LMB were hitting aggressively, all of them pretty good size. Are the LMB that sensitive to environmental changes that are not necessarily water temp. related?
Also, two years ago I coorected a pretty bad pH problem in this lake. Prior to that, the LMB that we caught were not this big or thick. Do corrections in chemistry work that quickly?

Josh is a young man(18 YOA) who hunts and fishes continually and is good at both. He, my Grandson Trevor, and a couple of girls went to my place last week for a day of fishing, shooting and 4 wheeling. This was caught using Stubby Steves for bait.

The fish came either last year or the year before from Allen Hall. When we finally got rain, he brought about 125 CNBG's from his ponds in East Texas. Some of those fish went 8 inches or so. This one looks to be pushing 2 pounds so have done well. I'm feeding Optimal but am nowhere close to heavily feeding. In a 1.5 acre pond, I generally feed about 5 seconds per day. However, over the winter I don't feed and just started again about a month ago.

I tried some Stubby Steves yesterday and caught a lot more bluegills than usual. And, none swallowed the hook. A couple that I got yesterday would have pushed 11 to 12 inches. Those Stubbies have been in my refrigerator for about 5 years. I had forgotten about them but the guys found them. I need to order some more.

Al, thanks for the fish.

Dave, are you saying that the fish in the first photo isn't a HBG?
