Headed out for a couple hours solo trip each day over the weekend (still on call - due date was yesterday). Started off Saturday with a flat on the trailer - fix a flat hooked me up on that one for now. Kind of strange conditions on Saturday - decently strong south breeze with water back down to around 68 or so from the windy afternoons I guess. Really strong current as well. Managed to pick up a few bass and a decent ling ~8lbs down south:

Met up with Justin and his buddy and headed up north to look for some more bass. The spots were loaded but not a whole lot of biters. Must have been tough for the tournament that was going on. Wind died down though and it was an extremely pleasant spot to hang out for a bit:

Picked up a couple calicos and called it a day.

Sunday was a little better - started off with a good flurry on the suspended sandies picking up 7 or 8 in the first 45 minutes on a curly tail christmas plastic down south. Decent brownie for some variety:

Cruised around a bit and found the bones - all I wanted on the crocodile. Nothing over a couple pounds but lots of fun:

Good weekend. All fish on swimbaits 60-80' of water with the exception of the bones.

Have a good week.

Nerve wracking but worth every minute of it. You will be known as "dada" very soon. :hali_olutta:

Hope to see some pictures next time we see you at the launch. Enjoy this time and let us know when the new baby is here.
