Mattm and The Natural by the Numbers

Recommended Posts

Lake: Ray Roberts

Weather: cold front following heavy rainfall...60's and mostly cloudy

Water: Stained to Murky; 63 degree surface temp (average)

Pattern: Pitching Baits- targeting the larger diameter trees in 5-6ft of water. Crankbaits- mouths of creeks that had chunk rock, wind, and Sandbass exploiting the shad spawn. .

Number of bites: 11

Number of fish: 8

Best 5: around 18-19lbs [5.3lbs, 4+lbs, and 3lbs (x3)]Number of breakoffs: 2

Minumum the fish Matt broke off weighed 5lbs<(it was a big girl :()

Matt's frustration level after the loss: 7/10

Matt's frustration level after breaking off a second fish: 9/10

Number of times I've seen CXX break in 5 years: 2 (never seen a bad spool like that...Matt could break it with his hands)

Number of rods broken: 2 (Matt broke a Mossyback, and I broke a Zillion)

Number of Times I farted: 23 (est.)

Matt's skill at taking pictures: 2/10 (about the same as my trailer backing competency to be fair ;))

Matt's photo skills don't allow me to show you the big fish of the day...it turned out so good I can't post it ;).

Gotta love those "free" *** shirts. Just spooled up some bad sunline, freaky to have a line your confident in break so many times.

What the heck was wrong with the pic of your 5lber.  You have a point and shoot camera it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.  What did I do?

I'm just busting your balls....it wasn't like it was a trophy fish :).  It was just a little shaky.

I knew somebody would notice we both ended up wearing Tackle Warehouse T-shirts.  Matt called me the night before and asked what I was wearing tomorrow, and I told him 'probably just a tackle warehouse T'.  Low and behold he showed up with his Tackle Warehouse T-shirt on....he said wearing matching shirts is 'fun'

Now that's funny!!! ;D ;D ;D

Nice fish and a great looking spot.

Fortunately or unfortunately...the Majority of RayBob is timber/standing trees. Coming from Oklahoma...it looks like there should be a fish on every one :).  You just have to try and distinguish which trees are holding fish.

He's very proud of his farts. I had som gas as well but in the eyes of Natural his were always better.

Hey....I'm a modest guy, but my farts owned you! (strictly going by decibels...too windy to sample aroma)
