Sorry for posting so late. I just thawed out.
I don't know if Trevor mentioned this or not, but it was COLD today! I digress. It was nice out, but the wind chill had to be nearly freezing. And like Trevor said, the water was white-capping from time to time. I had on a pretty hefty streamer and it was whipping in the wind like a kite.
Anyway, we did manage not to get skunked after the 2-hr drive to the Caney Fork. I ended up being very proud of myself. Up until now, I rarely fished streamers. I know they catch alot of big fish, but I've never had great luck with them, hence, I had no faith in them. Today, however, I fished only streamers all day long. I picked up a few nice fish, got a look from a few more, and ended up changing to a "Streamers for Life" kind of guy. I think Trevor ended up feeling a bit better about streamer fishing as well.
That one run he was in was unreal. You would get a strike on literally every cast...but only if you cast to just the right spot. And with the wind gusting in excess of mach 3, that was no easy task.
Like I said; great day on the water and really awesome getting to fish it for the first time with a friend.
