Another GREAT Week on RC as Adam and I fished thirteen trips between us and LOTS of White Bass, a few Hybrids and a limit or two of Crappie will be on the menu for future Fish Frys! The week started off with a BANG as Ron Ort of Dallas (See Picture) landed the largest Hybrid of the Spring so far on Monday morning. We netted, photographed and released the 10 lb. plus fish and hopefully it will be caught again in the near future. The White Bass action is about as good as it gets with the Afternoon Trips being even better than the mornings this past week. Easy limits most days was the norm! The Hybrid bite is best in the first couple of hours of the day on the Flats in 5' water. The Crappie are still in the shallow water on their annual spawn and are being caught on minnows and small jigs.
We had the pleasure of fishing with several new Customers this week and it's always FUN to renew old acquaintances with Friends who have fished with us for years! We continue to be blessed with good business even in the tough economic conditions that many are facing. We've held our rates the same for the past 5 years and continue to offer the "Package Special" of a Fishing Trip for Two and Overnight in a Cabin at Fisherman's Point Marina for $299. For those of you who like to stay at the "Horse Ranch" , you'll be glad to know Jim & Linda Mallory are once again managing the Ranch, and some of our Customers choose to stay there.
We're all booked this upcoming week, but have April and May Weekday openings starting the Week of April 16th. We have a Saturday Afternoon open on May 12th, and several Saturdays in June still available. Give us a call at 903-389-4117 to get in on the Spring Fishing Action. We'll be glad to do a Shore Lunch Fish Fry for Group Trips when both boats are reserved on a Weekday. We can also arrange Lodge or Cabin reservations for you and handle just about any size Group you want to fish.
Have a Great Week and hope to see you soon!
