Ralph, one of our Fayette Fishing Forum members, fished with me two days after Christmas from Dawn till Dusk.


Now that's a beautiful Sunset!!

A "follow boat" is a good way to learn more about the lake.

Okay, it was a bit fog and VERY early. 



Just in case you think it is cold here in Texas, check out my sister and Niagara Falls.

         The Falls

Wonder how the fish felt under this?

I am sure you have noticed many references to gander Mountain Staff. Again today I had the pleasure of fishing with Doug  associate from the Sugar Land Store.  He is a very good fisherman and quite knowledgeable.  If you have not been to the numerous Gander Mtns in the Houston area you need to get there soon.  There is one in Spring on 45, Houston on 290, and Sugar Land on 59.  This weekend is the grand opening for the Beaumont Gander.  These are great people and a great company.

Allow me to wax philosophic for a second. Nothing makes a teacher prouder than seeing their former students all grown up.  Here is Missy a grad student and her mom and dad fishing Fayette with me.  It was a wonderful day.

On Tuesday, February 8 I had the distinct pleasure of speaking to the Metropolitan Bass Club which meets once a month at Gander Mountain. These are class guys that really know how club should be run.  Eric Nygren, Game Warden for Fayette County also attended and provided great insight on the lake.
