Hey guys. Just wanted to say hello to everyone and let you guys know that I am still alive. I have not had time to post but miss talking to you guys. I have been taking care of my little dude, who is now 1 and 1/2 years old. I am still fishing every saturday but no longer everyday. I usually head out once a week during the week to get my little dude out. Hope everyone is well and hope to see you guys soon...Here are some photo's of what I have been up to.

If you want, you can delete the pictures and I will resize. I just resized on the photobucket but it did not change the size of the photo's on here. Hope everyone is well.

I was going to edit but have a few responses. Brian, The boat is still in the shop!!!! OUCH! NO tawakoni but we will get out this weekend, expect a call.

Those of you that dont know, my number is 817-715-8659. I no longer have a land line. I got sick of all the sales pitches waking up my little one.

Daddy life is awesome.

The reds are from fairfield and I have been fishing lewisville and benbrook for the hybrids. The fishing is just now turning on in the freshwater. Actually, I wonder if the bite ever shuts down??
Texoma has also been hot. I will be spending the next month fishing benbrook, Lewisville and Texoma with one trip to the coast for sheepshead.

From everything that I've read about fresh-water reds, you have to troll or fish pretty deep for them.

If redfish could be put in more reservoirs and fished successfully in shallow water, that would be a huge draw.

The reds being in deep water is a myth and one I like to keep quiet about. I also almost never troll. All the large reds I catch are caught casting large plugs. I usually catch them in waters ranging from 1 and 1/2ft deep to waters in the 20's. 15lb test is about perfect but I prefer a 20lb braid due to being able to pack more line on a spool. The reds rip off a ton of line when caught in the shallows. I even catch the reds in the shallows when fishing tradinghouse and never trolling......
