Fished Bandera, Dog Leg Ranch on May 15th starting around 9:30 until around 5.  I was a little concerned about the chance of stormy weather so I started-out wearing my rain gear.  Fortunately it only sprinkled for a very short period (I really did not need the rain gear at all) and by 2PM  the sun was coming out and when I left it was almost clear (so much for 80% chance of rain).  Unfortunately, the rain or chance of it stopped the big ones from biting (that is my story and I am sticking with it).

The water level was almost full and I did not have any issues with launching my kayak.  I did end the day with 12 total (10 culled) and the one at 14 and one at 16 inches.  They seemed to be hitting the best on a shallow running crank bait, but in very different water levels and structure (weeds, laydowns, stumps, brush piles).
