Stick Marsh & Farm 13

Capt. George Welcome
December 10, 2006
Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report

The first week of December has come and gone with one common event throughout this land of sunshine and big fish: the wind has howled for the entire week.

Monday I had Daniel and Sheila from Barcelona, Spain. On holiday, there were scheduled for two days of fishing. We opted to use the protection of the grass lines that can be found on Ansin/Garcia for day one. Between the use of wind socks, and hiding behind grass we managed a full day with 30 something bass finding their way to the boat. Using the common language of fishing and various hand signals we were able to communicate and have a fantastic day on the water. I speak no Spanish at all and they spoke no English but we had a great time and actually chatted most of the day.

Wednesday the wind had dropped a bit, so for day two of Daniel and Shelia's trip we headed out to the Marsh to see what we could find. However, the winds of the previous week had turned most of the Marsh's water into very clouded conditions and finding players was just a bit difficult. We managed to find fish but the bites were really scattered. The wind picked up by mid-day so for the balance of the day we plied the wood of the back lot. Spinner baits and Senkos were the producers for both days.

Thursday the weather prediction was for a nice AM with the afternoon winds picking up to 20-25 knots. Steve Allen was scheduled of a 1/2 day afternoon but we moved the trip to the morning hours. With Wednesday's results, Steve made the call to see Garcia. At the north end of the 512 ditch my two year old power head in the Mercury 200 E.F.I. bit the dust. Since we were just about where we would be fishing we continued on with the trolling motor and had a very successful day of fishing. A phone call to Mr. Don Willis was all it took to make the trip back to the ramp easier. Don set aside what he was doing and came to the rescue, taking Steve back to the ramp and then returning to tow me back.

All in all it has been an adventurous week, picking up a bit of the Spanish language, having my motor blow up, and catching some respectable fish.

As is the case with most waters down here, the spinner bait and Senko proved themselves to be producers.

I did get a report from a very reliable source that the Farm 13 side produced some good numbers last Saturday. Large shad busts were taking place out in open waters, so keep your eyes open when you are out there.

See you on the water.
