Reservation Number : 22095
Property Name : Cody Ranch Hart Lakes
Reservation Date : 09/11/2019 All Day -
Total Fish/Sizes : 56, from 8” to 18” (4 lbs)
Lures Used : Top water in the early morning; TR worms, senkos, and flukes later in the day.

My brother and I had a great time, as always, fishing Hart Lakes at Cody Ranch.  High 92, wind 10 to 15, mostly sunny.  Lots of lily pads, but lots of fish and lots of of open water to catch them on both lakes.  Slightly better luck on Upper Hart in size and numbers, but both were good.  Fish were healthy and plentiful.

Great job Bryan! Were you able to harvest the fish 14" and smaller?

Steve,

Yes we did harvest the smaller fish (see harvest report).  Interestingly, there were a lot of fish right at 14-15”, and we put those back.

Bryan,

Thanks for the clarification. We want to remove fish 14 inches and smaller. And if they are 14 to 15 inches take them out. To make things easier we "have to" make a hard number, which is 14", but the reality is if it is close, please remove. When in doubt, you are better to remove when it is a lake where we are harvesting. 

Thanks

Thanks for the clarification Steve. I’ll keep that in mind in the future.
