Garmin by Water, Garmin by Land: A Frog’s Worst Nightmare


Dsc01151Dsc01146_2Drastic times called for drastic measures, and Wade knew we could catch some fish on the legendary Sam Rayburn Reservoir, which was less than two hours away.  We punched the resort into our nuvis, and were led on a quick and easy excursion to one of the best bass lakes in America.

For the next day, we were treated to heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping topwater fishing.  Using mostly Stanley Ribbits, we caught our fair share of bass — nothing big, but who cares when each strike feels like Jaws is after you?  These fish attack these plastic frogs with such fury that by the end of one morning, we had a “Kermit Graveyard” full of mauled baits.

Dsc01171The moral of the story?  In an unfamiliar lake, use your sonar and GPS to find the most likely hiding spots for fish.  But if the weather won’t cooperate, use your nuvi to lead you to greener pastures.  Of course, we also learned that while the fishing improved for us, it spelled doom for many a frog bait.  It’s not easy being green!
