Spring?

by karstopo on 02-18-2018 at 08:46 AM
Is Spring here? The Crappie say yes. Crappie on the lake I live on move into the shallows next to the bank to spawn in early spring. Iíve been recently picking off some with Balanced jigs in 2-4 feet of water. From reading the Crappie boards here in Texas, this lake Iím on is precocious. Most everywhere else the Crappie are still down deep.

My dad wants to do a road trip soon to find Spring. My teenage son is starting a school break soon and dad wants me and my son Matthew to join

Healing takes time

by karstopo on 01-24-2018 at 11:38 AM
I got my right hip joint replaced last Monday, the 15th of January. Iím 55 and never really had a great hip joint according to the orthopedic surgeon. Something genetic about it. My dad and his dad had replacement surgery. My dadís youngest brother needs it.

Before the surgery, I started having signs of trouble maybe 7 or 8 years ago. Iíd go for a run and get a distinct sharp pain in the joint that would smooth out some and subside some once I got a little into the run probably

On the Boat, Part II

by karstopo on 01-08-2018 at 04:00 AM
Iím enjoying these boat excursions lately with my buddy Rick. Iím almost always fishing out of a kayak in the saltwater, so fishing from a 22í center console is a nice change of pace.

Weíve had a week, a few days of cold for us weather. Nights dipped into the 20ís, 24 briefly was the bottom at my house and there were a couple of days where the temperature never cracked 40 sandwiched between a couple that hovered around the mid forties.

All that unusual cold and the

Hybrid Vigor

Or otherwise known as heterosis.

heterosis
[het-uh-roh-sis]
the increase in growth, size, fecundity, function, yield, or other characters in hybrids over those of the parents.

Normally, this term is applied to organisms, plants and animals that have some desired or superior qualities over their parents. Corn that has higher yields, better drought tolerance or livestock with better disease resistance, things like that.

Torn Between the Waters

by karstopo on 12-20-2017 at 01:00 PM
I have been, at least for the last 11-12 years, all about the inshore saltwater scene first with lures and plugs and then later fly tackle. The saltwater set my heart ablaze when I lived at Surfside Beach for three years starting back in 2006. I could and frequently did walk out either front or back door, down the stairs, take a right and 75 yards of dragging a kayak across the packed sand, I was in prime redfish habitat. Or I could and frequently did take a left and 5 blocks later, I was on the
