Started Sunday morning with a swing and miss at the “Pond Behind In-N-Out Burger”. Decided to move to another spot just down the road… it’s the pond along Angel Parkway. Windy and cold still, did not plan to fish for long. But, then got a bite on the PMOT… turned out to be a nice Bluegill! Was about ready to head home, but decided on “one more cast” trying something different… put on a strike indicator and went with a COAF Guadalupana for the fishing fly. This pattern is a variant of the original, but has worked well for stocked trout in the past as well as Bluegill and Bass. Took a little to figure out the hookset but ended up losing count of how many were caught and released.  Even came back later that evening and lost count again of what was caught and released. Will get a video posted of the evening round later in the week. For now, here is the video from this morning! Out and About Sunday Morning Pond Fishing.

Follow-up video of action Sunday... Sunday Evening's Pond Fishing.

Struck out the other day fishing the pond behind In-N-Out Burger. Decided to give it another try Monday. Things started slow but did pick up with Bluegill. Pond Behind In-N-Out Burger.

More fun pond fishing! This time tried a pond using a 4wt and traditional fly line, then later with a one-handed spey fly line.  Really liking the one-handed spey fly line! Pond Fishing.

Sidetracked fishing today but did get the video of last week's kayak fishing. Struck out but still a fun time, tried different techniques to get fish to bite... no luck. Did have fun testing out the new Pelican Catch 100 kayak; really like being able to stand up in it. Hope to use it fly fishing!

Fun time on the water even when striking out... tried trolling, bottom bouncing, jigging, and casting without success. Rain came but was able to miss it. Video also shows why we like the Heritage Featherlite... easy to put in as well as load into a little pickup. Struck Out Kayak Fishing...

Was a tough round fishing last week. Decided to take the jon boat and put out jug lines instead of the kayak and flyrods. Only caught one Channel Catfish that we let go. We know the Catfish are there; just got to keep at it… plus always good to recall past trips like the one where we caught a 33″ catfish jug lining (added a snippet of that trip to the video below as a reminder!) Tough Round Fishing Lavon...

Did make a trip to the Lower Illinois River in Oklahoma for some trout fishing. Caught several trout and other fish using an Olive Near Deere while fishing partner used a bubble float rig to catch them with Trout Worms. Only fished for a couple of hours before they started generating. Still a fun time and despite the high temps, the water was chilly while wet wading the river.

Will post a video of the trip later!

Made it to the Lower Illinois River earlier this month – June 2, 2018. Had a fun time wet wading the river for a chance at trout and other fish! Went with the 5 weight fly rod and one-handed spey casting with the OPST Commando Head. Used an olive Near Deere for the fishing fly. Fishing partner opted for ultralight spinning gear and Power Bait Trout Worms. Tip broke on the rod but he did manage to catch trout using a bubble fly rig!

Your’s truly only caught one trout but did miss several more. Did catch a White Bass and a Striped Bass (little one), too. Hot day but the water was cold. And, even though the water was murky, the fish were biting. Ended up calling the trip short because they started generating power. No worries… made it to OKC early and checked out Bricktown… cool place!

Took the Jon Boat and Kayak to Highland Park on Lavon; caught four Catfish for a fish fry! Fun stuff, using shad for bait on Jug Lines!

Great time kayak fishing yesterday, even though we caught only one Catfish. Still working the video of the fishing and side trips to the Texas Coast and Hill Country. More to come. Yesterday's Pictures.
