Banging head against the wall

Friday night I headed to TP despite severe thunderstorm warnings. The skies seemed sunny and the breeze had laid down nicely. The only thing that was working was the twisty and the fish were all dinks, but I continued plugging away hoping for the elusive topwater slam. My mission was interrupted by a phone call from a buddy who lives on Thomas Point and could see me from his back deck. He said that there were tornado warnings coming right at us from the west. NOT GOOD. So I raced home and got in my car just as the rain came down hard.

Did not fish saturday, but was out at 9.30 Sunday AM. It was quite breezy, so I fished marker 16. The only thing working was again the white twisty. I must have picked up 20 fish between 16-20 but no TW action. Tonight the wind had laid down so off to the point I went. Arrived at the spot and anchored up at 6.45. Fished until dark. I alternated between the black stillwater, white twisty, and the big chugger. Got a fish on virtually every cast with the twisty and one very nice 22. Just as the sun was setting, I finally got the slam I was looking for and boated a fat and healthy 20 on the big Chug Bug.
