    Default Mayo 2/20/16

    Overall nice day at the lake, not too crowded and not too cold. Got worn out by the wind on the first spot but moved into a nice protected pocket to lay the hammer to them. First fish my buddy caught was a nice 4# fish. Then he laid into another 4# fish not 30 minutes later right across on the other side of the pocket. I finally caught my first fish 3 or 4 casts after that. All three of the big girls we caught had really red mouths.

    By about 11 o'clock we had 12 pounds in boat, and by about 12 o'clock my boat lost power and was dead in the water. That's the way she goes I guess. Thanks to the kind club fisherman that jump started me and gave me enough juice to float back to the ramp!

    DT-6s. Probably be the last time I buy them though. I think I broke 4 of the bills off that day.

    Nice haul. Never really been sure what to make of the red mouths. Anyone know that one?

    Thanks for the report!

    Lots of folks say the red mouths come from feeding on crawfish. Others say it's associated with the water temps, seasonal, hormonal.

    I'm not sure either SurfRider, I don't know if it was just coincidence or not but bright and red colors were the ticket that day. We were in some pretty clear and warmer water too.

    I've also heard the really red mouths come from feeding on crawfish.

    The red mouths are a sign they are feeding heavily on craws. I find more craws spit out in the bottom of my live wells when the mouths are red than shad. I think it has something to do with the iodine...similar to shrimp...in the craws and it makes the mouths red.
