    Excellent report and pics., as usual. Congrats on the 10fish limit! Is that the bridge on the south end of Lake Sabine that goes to Cameron? Man, that sure has changed for the better!!!

    The row boat is a fine fishing platform especially for certain applications . I was pretty shallow for most boats . Boaters were fishing deeper water . Time , cleaning , gas saved not taking the boat . I'll take the boat when fishing for trout .
    Matter of fact , the half wit just ate fried flounder for brunch . I gave 5 flounder away , eaten 3 , froze 2 .
    Krolls Marine called yesterday stating the rig is ready . My old trailer bunk sides fell off last time I launched it ...HAR! I had them replace my Minn Kota 80 pound thrust for the I-Pilot 110 pound thrust . It will stay on a set course at a set speed dispute wind and current direction . Less fiddling with controls and more fishing a stretch of shore. Also , it will "anchor " in one spot . If you drift more than 5 feet , it will bring you back . No handle . Remote controlled . RTOLER has one and loves it .

This jig is by owner hooks and has the best broad , flat base for this application . The lil john plastic i soaked in gulp juice and shortened it .

    I really like that jig head. Looked at the web site and they are priced lower than some other brands that already caught my attention by doing the same thing. They make the soft plastic point upward.
    Very nice.

    Yep , I think I got fewer hang ups and the HOOKSET was as good if not better than my usual swimming jigheads for a good HOOKSET . The hook was deep or in the hard jawbone . The three I lost I felt had grabbed it by the teeth then let go . They didn't surface . The line just went limp . I didn't have any throw the hook . . It will be my flounder jighead from now on . I use Owner treble hooks as well for plugs . They make good hooks .
