  1. Mario- That cuts deep. Brid- May have to think about that one.
  2. All dressed up and no date to dance with.
  3. I just got a new Carpmobile and was itching to take it out;and my nephew Jacob was in town, so we definitely had to go somewhere. We only had one night so I wanted to stay close so I was looking at Ray Bob, Grapevine, and Joe Pool. I weighed those options and started getting ready for Ray Bob, but the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to get Jake something special. He had traveled from Massachusetts and won't be back for another year. My mother-in-law let me know that she did not want me to take him to Austin, Fork takes too long to get going, so I decided to run them to Purtis Creek
  4. Excellent. I'm looking forward to seeing everybody next weekend! Chad
  5. Just another week in the Texas Carp scene...
  6. I got sunburned when I fished last Tuesday, Froze my Doughballs off on Saturday, and was running around in shorts today. Predictions for 10 days away? Chad
  7. I selected 6-6, but why not go 6-7? Extended times for more time on the water. I also chose early because the fish are active early. If they start releasing water at 9:00, we'll have more time with the fish. That's the pattern I've seen- Fish crashing early, and solid catching until the gates open. Then the catching slows for a while until the release stops in the afternoon. The extra hour in the evening also gives us more time with the fish after the release stops. Chad
  8. I’m as guilty as anyone about not posting about my blanks, but when I do it on such a massive scale, I figure I’m obligated to share. I had been planning on heading down for the WCC tournament for a while, but needed a ride. Al shot me a text on Thursday and asked if I wanted to ride with him, so we set it up for him to pick me up on Friday afternoon. I encountered my usual list of things that put our departure back- I was repairing my toilet, and couldn’t get it to seal right, my wife wouldn’t be home until later, so I couldn’t leave the boys until she returned, and I did next to no packing
  9. Yesterday I had a phone interview. I've been going to the park to have some peace and quiet for the interview. After the interview was over, I slapped a piece of bread on, casted out, and caught this guy- My Second Koi. This is THE KOI that I first saw there about 2 or 3 years ago. This is the one I was originally after at this pond. I think there are 2 more; maybe 3. I'm going to go for them all. I didn't even have to dress up for this one! Chad
  10. After 6 years of hoping and trying, I finally landed my first Koi. I've known for a while that this little pond had them, but I haven't been able to put all the pieces together to get one on my line. Finally Today it happened. Classic Duck Pond Tactic- Throw Pieces of Bread in the water, then Freeline some bread to catch the fish. I started out doing what I've always done- Wad the bread on the hook and leave the point exposed, and fish on the bottom under my chum bread. I did that and caught a Common and 3 Bullheads (You know if I'm there, the Catfish will find me). I decided that I needed
