This is a photo from back before I left for Toledo Bend, but I think it's worth sharing. Living the dream!

Got my first few cold water fish yesterday (5 to be exact). It was cold, mid 20's when I went in the afternoon. Ponds just thawed for a few days but will probably be frozen again tomorrow. Took 1 rod and 1 65 pointer because I only had about 30 minutes. This was the biggest one, the other 4 looked like bass colored swimbaits, only smaller.

The tule fog lifted, the sun came out and a friend and I were able to get out on the water with favorable conditions. The weather forecast is showing no rain for the foreseeable future this February, which means a lot of good fishing days. My first decent fish of 2018 was this 4.2lb largemouth.

I didn't catch a largemouth that big all of last year that I can recall. Excellent first bass of 2018

Been a crazy winter in a not so good way with very little precip and unseasonably warm temps, but on a positive note it seems to have jumped the prespawn action up a month or so. Caught 30+ yesterday in 74* t-shirt/shorts weather and 58* water temps.

I am fortunate enough to get to fish one of the coolest places in the entire world as far as I'm concerned. Snow on the ground, ice in my guides, and I'm watching them chase bluegill up on the bank, while sight casting to cruisers. I even got one to eat a frog but I missed him!

Tale of 2 days for me this week. Monday I worked hard for 1 bite, and it did not end well.

 

Tuesday I was catching so many fish I started trying to see what wouldn't work. When I was catching them on a 190 Plopper in 14 degree air temps in a foot of water, I knew the answer. They were tearing up my Donut Shad swimbait until the zebra mussels claimed it :(

Ok...going to try and post pic's another way...son said it's better.....will see.  Here's a couple pictures from yesterday.  Was a beautiful day....started in the high 30's and got into the mid 40's.  Still wearing the gloves...and loving them.  I'm showing a picture of a beautiful boat ramp (almost like my private lake in winter but not)  The rain we had the other day has them chasing the jerk a LOT better....Tight LinesBPLNY1u2AlblEi55zYK7cqBlKyAIpnyEZkvJbKo-tKoN2bsMYQtrkCYd1AY_UHzQmIM8O0gklzM_Vl6U

Lots of aggressive 2-3 pounders have been moving up the past couple weeks... hoping the big girls aren't too far behind.

I made it out for an hour and a half before dark. The fish are bedding finally. Traditionally , the first batch of bedding fish on my lake relate mostly to wood bulkhead. Today was no exception. I used a 10 inch grape shad culprit to catch the first fish ( 3.11 ) against A wood b.head. A subtle presentation is best, so I either skip the worm into position, or cast to the bank and gently pull it in , which is how I caught the first fish.

Fished other areas, including laydowns near the island, with no results. Caught the 2nd fish ( 2.8 ) near a dock and b.head, with some kind of black grape with green specks ribbon rail worm. Had to winch him out from around the dock pilings. Turned around and skipped the next cast into a nice pocket between the bulkhead and grass bed. The 3rd fish 

( 3.14 ) Hit the same worm. 

Excited to see the fish up shallow !😀large.20180211_174852-972x1296.jpg.1f95ab1d3a7c30440643e2eeab9cadb7.jpglarge.20180211_183335-972x1296-486x648.jpg.972c67e288054cebad4c948bf266eb9d.jpglarge.20180211_183732-972x1296.jpg.22d02c618affe36ea166491b45ede962.jpg

Prespawn is officially here. I love pitching jigs in the cypress knees when the girls start showing up, and the in close battle. This is the first one that looks like she's been fanning a bed. Bottom tip of tail is a little red

It was rough Tuesday, not because of the fish, I just couldn't put one in the boat. Had at least 3 good ones hooked and lost all of them, all on a RES 2 Tap. I was in the market for a new trap rod as of about 0900 this morning when the 3rd and probably biggest one got off. I did finally boat a nice one and that was the last bite I had. 5.58 on a swing head and a rodent.

Found a pre Rapala wart in a tree too, always a pleasant surprise.

Nice find on the wart. Updated hooks too. I think I would have gone after that one if I throw it into a tree.

 

Also, nice fish.

He should try structure fishing off shore, instead of bank beating! :ph34r:
