Boat on Trailer
I have been Bass Fishing almost everyday since we arrived here in Zapata and the fishing has been unbelievable. I still have not caught the DD (double digit) that I am looking for as a personal best but I sure have caught a bunch of big bass by anybodies standards. 9.1 is still holding as my personal best. I have caught a bunch of 14, 15, 16 inchers which make some real nice fillets and we have enjoyed many a meal of fish to date.
I have been keeping my boat in the water and just fishing the bay and a couple of main lake points just outside the bay but my travels are limited to just my trolling motor. When the indicator says I only have 50 percent of a charge left in the battery I turn and fish my way back to "home".
A friend that I made here in Zapata last year when we first visited here has loaned me his golf cart trailer and as you will see in the following pictures my boat fits nicely. The lights are working and I am anxious to go explore other coves and corners of this lake-----on the American side of course.
There is a bridge that crosses one of the fingers of water just as you enter Zapata from the South and my friend Dale took me crappie fishing there last year. The crappie are huge (2 lbs each are common). The boat is loaded on the trailer and tomorrow morning the "ss tininthewind" and I will go see if we can catch some of those big crappie.
It will be good to fish with lighter tackle for the crappie as my arms and upper body muscles are sore from all the bass fishing I have been doing------It is a "good" sore though and I promise you I am not complaining.
