I’ve seen this bass hanging around my dock for a long time now. Always looks like it’s on death’s door, yet here it is feeding in 3‘ of 50 degree water on a cold and cloudy day. Head keeps growing, not so much the rest of it.

One of the many low water reds from the other day. Stake out, cast to a targeted spot 40-50’ away in ~2’ of water, catch a redfish, rinse, repeat type of fishing. Happens every winter when the water gets blown out. Not sight fishing for the most part, but still beats staying home.

Took the Gladesman out of Matlacha today 2 hour delay for a bad 5 month old battery in the Jeep thankfully it was under warranty. Managed 9 trout on the 5 weight a few nicer ones. Good to see them coming back strong.
Poled a half dozen shorelines looking for reds only saw one and he was high tailing it the other way . The water is super clear right now.

I remember the last Crappie I caught, about 35 years ago fishing with my dad and his friend Randy.
We were LMB fishing in the delta, they were using plug casters and I was using a Cortland Black Diamond 6 wt.
I'd gone down to small black fly as the water was pretty clear and the fish were few, over cast day.
Good eats.
