    Last time I went freshwater fishing was 2 weeks ago, caught 5 Crappie. Went saltwater fishing one day last week, caught 1 Trout. Just haven't been all that interested in fishing this spring, I'll get after them in May though, and for sure when my little fishing buddy gets out of school.

    We there Saturday and it was slow. My 1st time there and mid-day may have been some of the problem.

    We started fishing probably about 12-12:30 pm. Crickets were all they would bite in 4-6 ft of water by trees. We were in the trees away from the landing. Started down close to the trussle and worked toward the swamp. We crossed over mud lake but not as much luck. As the afternoon wore on the bite slowed. Did see a big gator though.

    Crickets seem to be the most consistent bait they bite. I have done well on worms but always take 100 crickets.

    I fished a bass tourny on Murray last week, took 19lbs to win, big fish was about 6.6lbs. I caught 1 striper on spinnerbait, 4 bass on lizards. My partner caught 5, all on lizard. All were caught in shallow water. The bite was good but should be getting better.

    Just got off the phone with a charter capt friend of mine,,,,salt water fishing sucks right now. If you go,,,,use cut blue crab for the red drum.

    The way the fronts are blasting through here makes it tuff! Water temp is still a little cool.
    I never did like spring fishing......Should be a lot better come late May-June

    Hate drowning cricket. You guys have any luck with artificials on the bream.

    Most of the Bream/Shellcrackers we catch are taken on Beetle Spins. Also use Rooster Tails and mini Rebels/Crankbaits sometimes. I use a flyrod too mostly with popping bugs, or bead head nymphs. Got Lil'Red a 5 weight flyrod for this year.

    Last bream trip was to a farm pond. Used a one inch grub on 1/32 oz head. Out caught the cricket dunkers 2 to one and bigger fish too. Never had luck with the beetle spin type bait. But will give them a try again.

    Mahi are starting to pick up offshore. Still not consistent size and numbers. Buddy of mine went out two weeks ago and caught 30, went back out 6 days later and struggled to put 6 on the deck.
    The wife and I went to Santee last weekend and put 4 cats in the boat. Biggest was 5 lbs and smallest was 3. All in the canal and all on cut perch or shad. 3 out of 4 came on santee rigs with rattles.

    Caught about 25 bass Saturday in the mudhole. Nothing big had one about 3 pounds. Fish not yet orientated to the muddy water is seems. Fish were =not on the heavy cover as I would have expected. Well crankbaits work too in the mud.
