Bogue Falaya/T Funky Bassing 2 16 17

Wanted to hit my favorite stretch of T-Funky via 3 Rivers Launch and hit T-Funky hoping to nab a few chunks but water not too enticing and I made de executive decision to head North to the 4th Street launch after striking out at T-Funky near 3 Rivers.Instead of paddling all that way,I paddled back to 3 Rivers Launch and loaded up Chapman pirogue and re-launched at 4th Street(water in Bogue Falaya much nicer than the water in T-Funky,hint,hint).Tossed my favorite soft plastic for bass,Zoom Speed Worms,June Bug Red,Texas-rigged,and hit my usual Bogue Falaya spots and finally nabbed feisty Kentucky bass where I almost always catch a few.Wifey and I made our way to Bass Pro last night for Members Appreciation Event,where we met a couple from Holden that hold a World Slam for turkeys,getting 6 species of wild turkeys and went to Mexico for the last turkeys to fill out the World Slam.Told them my story about shooting a banded jake quite a few years ago in the Sherburne WMA on a turkey lottery hunt.Picked up new trolling motor battery for my Southfork and got a few soft plastics,hooks,etc to round out my gear for future T-Funky and Bogue Falaya bassing trips.Hard to beat the fight of those feisty Kentucky bass!!
