My bride suggested we go fishing today and I could not think of a reason to disagree. We got there late but had 10 jugs out by about 10am. I tried last night to buy my favorite bait, beef heart but HEB was out and rather than drive way over to Fiesta I bought, of all things beef cheek. It's tough and sinewy. I thought there's no way any fish will bite this stuff. The jugs soaked for a few hours while we toured Luces and the west fork. We took home 10 keepers after running the jugs twice with one being the fish I'm holding in the photo. That one took my jug under when we were idling up to it. That's always exciting when you reach for the jug and it disappears under the water!

I finally found the spillway from the new canal to the Trinity river. There's a good flow of water coming down the spillway now. I think I read on here that is from a spring? That's a pretty sizable spring in these parts.

Well done. Those 10 will make great meals. Good to hear somebody is on those cats in this heat. Gonna reline my jugs today and maybe get some out this week.

Thanks Sticko and Weatherman. It's sure nice having fish for supper knowing they were swimming that morning.
SK, I would like to see what that canal looks like from above. It was really windy when we were out on Monday. We had a few waves splash over the front deck of our pontoon.
