A little Panhandle freshwater fishing
As Sting mentioned, there's nothing Crabtree will let us catch, so we have to get our fishing fix some other way. A friend and I took a little trip down to the Panhandle and sampled the Jack & Bass fishing. We stayed at a friends place on Compass Lake and made the Chapola River North of the Caverns our first stop. Only able to fish a little over half the day on Wednesday, but still ended up with several Bass and a couple of Jack. Thursday we got an early start on Holmes Creek North of Vernon and ended up with our 2 man limit of Bass and about 6 Jack.On Friday, we went back to Holmes Creek, but went to an area well South of Vernon. We discovered the Jack were more active than the Bass in that stretch, so just a few bass, but a bunch of Jack. ended up with a possession limit of Bass and more Jack than we really wanted to dress. I would have enjoyed the trip for the scenery even if we hadn't caught any fish!
