White Bass

I made it out for a couple of hours after work on Tuesday. The Stones was way up because of all the rain. The day was great weather besides the 20 + mile another winds. I removed the skunk that has been following me for the last couple of short trips but it was white bass that removed it. First cast I caught a white bass and then one more shortly after that. After two I tried to move on to catch some bass but they did not like my offerings. All in all the trip was fun but I did take a dip in the water trying to get a crank bait that broke off. I thought it was shallow and when I reached for the bottom my legs kept going up to my waist. I did manage to stand up in the NuCanoe which was pretty neat. I wanted to get some video but the battery died. Here is a short one.

Birmingham Blown Out

Well my post of the Birmingham River/bassin Tournamnet will have to wait. After the NuCanoe and I drove down in the rain and the rain won. All of area was blown out and unfishable. The tournament was postponed and will have to be rescheduled. It was cool meeting some of the RiverBassin Forum members but it was not cool not getting to fish.

RiverBassin Tournament

Well last minute I got a chance to fish the Birmingham RiverBassin Tournament. I have been lucky enough to hook up with a guy from Nashville who seems to be way ahead of me as far as fishing and scouting out spots. Weather looks rough tomorrow but Staurday should be nice. I'll post a long entry about the event. Stay tuned.
