Quick update from the Team talks briefly of the recent trip to Texoma for some kayak fishing for Stripers, a little fun with the Ukulele, and the lots of fun with the Standup Longboarding! And then, in preps for answering the mail - request from a Viewer on our YouTube Channel to provide details on how we use a bubble fly rig to fish with fishing flies without a fly rod. Still have a demo to put together for it but for now, made the trip to Cabelas to stock up on bubble floats we use - specifically
Quick Update - Bubble Fly Rig Preps.

Rainy Friday, and forecast says 100% chance tomorrow into Sunday. But, the rain does not have us down. Gives us time to catch up on a few things - blogging updates, video edits, and continuing to write the article about the Bubble Fly Rig to answer a Reader's question on how we fish a Bubble Fly Rig. That said, have complete rigging three fishing poles with different bubble floats. Once the weather clears, will take video to show how we fish them. Hopefully, we answer the question, and may be others will give it a try this upcoming Trout Stocking Season! Another Quick Update - Bubble Fly Rig.

Another variant of the Elk Hair Caddis we tied the other day in a Quick Tie demo. This demo uses the same pattern and material that was already on hand. No need to run to the store to buy material. The one difference is this pattern wraps the wire rib over the dubbing body and the palmer wrapped hackle. In the other demo, we tied the wire rib after the dubbing body but before the hackle.

PS: The other pattern has caught 20+ Sunfish and Bluegill and is still going strong! Also, do stay tuned or the follow-up video on the Bubble Fly Rig.  We hope to answer our Reader's question and maybe convince others who want to fish with fishing flies but do not have a fly rod or are still learning how to fly fish!

Had only a short amount of time to fish after work today. No problems, able to cruise along on the standup longboard, make it to the local pond, and catch a fish or two with the Micro Fly Rod!

Decided to give the Standup Longboard workout and Micro Flyrod Fishing another try Sunday afternoon. Was a warm day but a nice one to catch a few Sunfish and Bluegill using the Telescoping Micro Flyrod and the Elk Hair Caddis. We really like the portability of the rod; when collapsed, easily fits in our shirt pocket. Even better, it does not interfere with the “paddling stroke” when standup longboarding.

hey Law Dog.  The Lavon record for Grass Carp is 58.5lbs.

https://www.texasinvasives.org/animal_database/detail.php?symbol=13
 
MANAGEMENT
Grass carp are potentially harmful to native resources. Currently, only triploid (sterile) Grass carp are legal for use in Texas, and a permit is required to obtain them. Since Grass carp is a potentially invasive species, an angler who catches one must immediately remove the intestines, except in waters where a valid Triploid Grass Carp Permit is in effect. In those waters, any Grass carp caught must be immediately returned to the water unharmed.

Like I said, any grass carp in Lake Lavon are there illegaly.

Had an awesome time on the water at Lake Texoma this past Saturday. Was a busy day on the lake being Labor Day Weekend, but it was manageable. Tried trolling at first and had a few strikes. Was hoping to locate balls of Shad with the depth finder, and then try to jig a slab and jig rig for a Bruiser or two lurking below the schools. As it turned out, that was not the pattern. Instead, it was chasing schools as Stripers started breaking the surface feeding on bait fish. This required lots of paddling, sight casting, and then more paddling. No worries though... ended the day with five Stripers for Dinner later that evening!

I took a drive out to East Fork park this Labor Day weekend to see if the ramp in the marina cove was open.  I stopped and asked the gate attendant and she told me it was finally open.

I paid my $5.00 entry fee to go in for a look. (last time I went in it was $3.00 but that was a few years ago which was probably right before Lavon flooded and damaged the road to the ramp).   I asked her if the potholes in the road had been repaired and she just smiled at me - not a good sign.

Anyway I drove in and noticed for the most part the pothole situation had not changed.  The big potholes where you make a 90 degree right turn just before going down to the ramp parking lot were still there.  The big potholes coming out of the parking lot and up the left hand sweeping turn were still there.   At least I don't have to learn new pothole locations when playing pothole dodge. icon_cry
