Tools/websites to help your fishing trips!

Sorry I have not blogged lately:( been busy in life and work.
Did get out Monday evening for a couple of hours on the Warrior river. Caught a dozen between 2 of us. Nothing large but lots of fun. Most were spots coming off floating worms and brushhogs. Hope to get out again in a day or 2.

The main reason for this post is to show some of the sites I use to help me plan my fishing trips, Tournaments, etc..

1- WaterWatch. The "Real-time streamflow" map tracks short-term changes (over several hours) in rivers and streams. Although the general appearance of the map changes very little from one hour to the next, individual sites may change rapidly in response to major rain events or to reservoir releases.
The map depicts streamflow conditions as computed at USGS streamgages

2-Barometric Pressure and weather patterns.
Awesome weather data for the whole county

3- angling-technologies Mapping site that is angler friendly.

4-Free online Topo maps.
I use this one alot also.

I'll leave you with a hog caught last june. right at 10, hit a Bandit flatmax in a foot of water. mucho fun. Can't wait to beat that one this year.

tuesday thoughts and beautiful talented fisher girl

Welcome to Tuesday's Thoughts.

First thought, wishin I was fishin. Guess I could start every blog post with that one:)

Second thought
, I'm very happy that we spring forward this coming Saturday night. I'm a very much sun,warm,daylight loving guy. Matter of fact, I have no doubt if I lived anywhere much north than where I do now, I would MOVE :) heck, I think I'm too far north as it is now in central Alabama.

Third thought, I'm thinking even though the water temps are still a little cool for this time of the year the bass will start to move up this weekend with the new moon.I'll be there on the water to find out for sure:) I'll let you know what I find out.

Fishing Thoughts, trips
. This past Sunday(3-7-10)I went down to Lake Lu in Livingston to fish a little and see if I could find any big girls biting. I didn't, I did catch 4, 1 on a rattlebait, 1 on a yumdinger and 2 dinks on a shakyhead.
Beats about anything else I can think of that requires cloths :)

Last thought, saving the best for last. I have met a female that is Beautiful, loves to fish,and is good at it. Smart, lawyer smart, funny and a great person. Want to meet her too :)
/Go Here and see for yourself. She's got it going on and I know you'll enjoy following her blog and keep up with the big fish she catches.
She's the Fisherbabe and I'm happy to call her a good friend. Stop by and say hi!

I'll leave ya'll with a pic I took Sunday afternoon since I had no pics of fish how about a nice southern sunset pic.

Life's short, hug those you love and get outside!

How Kevin Van Dam fishes the Red Eye Shad

The Bassmaster Classic winner shows how he fishes the Strike king red eye rattlebait.

Yesterday DJ(son) and myself went fishing for a little while. He kicked my butt fishing a rattlebait. This was his first time to really fish this type of lure and I think he's hooked:) He caught 4, lost 2(one of those we saw and was a solid 3lb fish)
I had 1 maybe 2 bites:(
Now I have to hear about that for a week or so until we go again.
Good going son:)

The Complete Angler

This is a series of videos, I think there's 7 in total. I just watch them all and completely enjoyed and will watch them over and over.
I know most all anglers will enjoy this also.

Now I'm wanting to go and read The Compleat Angler by Izaak Walton

Hopefully I'll get to fish Sunday, first full moon of the spring. The big toads should be up. I'll post my results.
