    Worst day ever.
    Loaded the car at 4, dead battery
    Grabbed tools and jumper ran to replace the battery
    Got out to the IV waaaaaaayyyyyy too late. No time to get bait for tilapia, went to a common spot, tried what I had hoping for bluegill, nothing. Other anglers show up tossing over me and catching one after another.

    Left and drove all over the place looking for a good location in the dark. Coach was directing me to one but took a long time to find it.

    Soaked bait got a large red eared slider turtle. Nothing else. Left at 11. So 7 hours of trying I soaked bait about a half hour for naught :(

    maybe 6-10 fishing trips this year and the only thing caught were 2 carp for bait.

    This ain't my year

    Well, at least you got out there and tried.
    Next month I will try instead of just reading other people's reports. LOL

    Sometimes when I dont have the time to make bait I buy a carp from the ranch or Zion. Big strips of fresh carp work great for Flatheads at the drops on the Alamo. And most the drops are easy to find on Google earth. All that movement makes the bait come alive, just gotta change your bait a little more than with live gills.

    I am worried about mine. It have 158,000 miles on it. I guess I need to replace it sooner then later.

    The Outback used to start right up and the last week or so there was a bit of a drag. Knew it was getting time so on the bright side it happened here not in the boonies. I was in some serious boonies
