By Tracy Humber - Posted on 13 March 2011

Had as my guest Eric Bauer today. Eric and his wife have just moved here from South Dakota and he is employed by the Air Force at the base here in Columbus. They are nice people and I think Eric had a good time today. I know I did. Eric got in touch with me through this site and was looking for some help on Columbus Lake about where to run and where not to run. I showed him several places he could run and several where he couldn't and the we went fishing. Had a pretty good day. We kept 34. All were specks. The largest was 1.5lbs and had several 1.25's. We caught every one of them throwing a jig under a cork.

We were using a curly tail grub, under a weighted cork, fishing about 12" deep. Were were casting over some grass and twitchin it across and thru the grass. I also caught a good mess 2 Fridays ago. Had 23 then.

It's a $1000 a day and I'll buy lunch. If they mention I'll knock off $75. I wasn't really in the guide service business, but heck this worked out so well, who knows?
