Wow the North wind did blow but the bass bite was awesome.
PSALM 30: Verse 5: For His anger endureth but a moment; in His favour is life: WEEPING MAY ENDURE FOR A NIGHT BUT JOY COMETH IN THE MORNING.
Well we had a great day on Lake Fairfield yesterday with over 30 Bass and over 15 of them were over 3 lbers. also 2 were in the 6 lb. range. All Bass were released but the redfish are going to be grilled on the half shell.
As a tournament angler myself trying to get a stringer of 5 Bass that will hit that blessed 20 lb. mark is a real challenge. Then you hit the mother lode of not 1 but 3 sacks over 20 lbs. each.
Bass were hitting french fries in purple passion and watermelon fish off main lake points in 6-15 feet. Lake Fairfield for those of you that do not know. Is a Power Plant lake that runs water in the Lake through an intake and warms it up to about 84 degrees ,lately and then discharges it out of a discharge cove. It maintains its warmth in the water temps through out the winter season. I have been Guiding on Lake Fairfield for the last 4 years and it is always exciting.
Also Redfish are stocked on a regular basis and they are really big. Yesterday that was the icing on the cake when a 6 lb. red hit that french fry. You think you have the Lake record Bass on. Thats right. Redfish in freshwater. You never know when you will find them. But when you do, hold on. Later in the day about 2:00 pm. One of those 10 lber. reds hit that french fry and the battle was on.
I Guide on Lakes: Palestine, Sam Rayburn and Fairfield. But Fairfield is a whole new thing in those colder air temps.
