Didn’t Turn Out to Be Such a Crappie Day

| March 8, 2012 | 4 Comments

When I go kayak fishing, it’s actually a three part experience for me. If the fish aren’t biting, I use the time to do some sightseeing and soak in my surroundings as a way to let life’s little worries melt away — if even for just a few hours. Last weekend, I broke away from all the hustle and bustle to do some white bass fishing on the San Gabriel River here in central Texas. Rumor had it that the white bass were running early but as my luck would have it, this wasn’t the case on the day I happen to visit the river. Even the old-timers with their trusty minnows weren’t haven’t much luck either. What else to do but enjoy the sights and sounds of the river. – Roland @ACK

The trees were still leafless but the undergrowth was exploding with green...hello spring!

The moon was shining bright even before sunset. Made for a nice paddle home.

The sun made a quick getaway but only led to a beautiful moonlit evening.

Well, this little crappie was not much to brag about but I was thankful that I caught something nonetheless.

As daylight departed, so did the winds creating a nice mirror like effect on the river with only a few paddle stroke ripples.

    We as fishermen should always suscribe to this attitude. Catching is just the added bonus. The beauty of God’s creation should be the draw. Thank you for sharing your insight Roland, very nice.
