Wifey did hubby huge favor and got new Fishing License(think she simply called 1-800 number and got PDF and printed it for my signature)and she also did hubby huge favor and lent a hand getting Southfork out from under her comfy confines(12 by 24 ft very nice boat shed,finally cleared clutter so she can rest under cover)!Not exactly sure what ole Mother Nature had in store for me but did get greeted with fairly decent conditions at mouth of Cane Bayou,tossed two-headed coin(heads on both sides???)and made de executive decision to hit Causeway,where I was greeted with water that was absolutely gorgeous,took exactly two casts at set of Pilings to boat cute lil 12 inch red,had a much bigger red trailing him and it did not take too long for much nicer red,about 19 inches,to gobble up Berkley Gulp Swimming Mullet,Chartreuse.Not too many casts later,boated a red that looked to be pegged right at 16 inches(had Home Cheapo wooden yardstick as my ruler)and I did not wanna risk it,let fine red go and nabbed fairly big croaker,always a welcome sign and then started getting Gulps shredded so I headed way East to bass mecca,only thing was bass did not know it!!!Headed back to Causeway and dinked around,watched storm start building near Cane so I made my way back to mouth of Cane,took rods outta holders and got very light sprinkling on way in,fun solo trip and reds are definitely out at Big Bridge,just not stacked up though I did catch 3 at one set of Pilings and also caught lady fish on return trip to Big Bridge,not a bad omen!!Think ya just gotta hunt and peck and stick a few nice reds in box and I did catch decent croaker and blue catfish,so I caught enough for dinner!!!Happy Independence Day and be safe!!
