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?

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
