    Lake austin was on fire!!! 6/21/12

    Never in my LIFE have I caught fish like I caught em this morning! Showed up at the ramp (360) around 5:30ish to find about 100 truck/trailers!!! It was the Texas Law Enforcement Bass Tourney!! I waited for the tourney guys to finish getting their boats in the water before I even pulled in.. I did manage to get mine in (and park my truck) about the time they sounded the horn.. What an awesome experience!! We were all rippin down LA like mad men!! What a RUSH!! I ran to Emma Long Metro and started throwing my chrome/black Super Spook Jr.. Figured it looks A LOT like a shad, so why not!? Well let me tell you, did I hit that nail on the head!!! Nothing but 1-3 pounders all morning!!! Put around 40 fish in the boat with 22 keepers total... The LMB were running the bait fish like CRAZY until about 9:00.. I would just throw into the middle of the madness and come out with a fish EVERY TIME! My best run was 4 keepers on 4 consecutive casts! MAN I HAD A BLAST! Guys in the tournament who were fishing all around me were really scratchin their heads! No one was draggin em in like I was! Course, it was about quantity not quality for me! Like I said, all my fish were in the 1-3lb range... No big momma's today! 9/10 times I am the one left puzzled! I have seen guys have days like I had, and I have NEVER had one! So excuse my excitement, BUT HELL YEAH!!!

    They did not come with me. They would NEVER get up that early! Instead, they eagerly await my arrival back home so we can fire up the skillet!!! We LOVE bass! Plus, I have family staying with us through the weekend (mom, dad, neices), and they were all expecting a FISH FRY!! Killed two birds with one stone today!! Really enjoyed myself and now I get to kick back and have a "free" meal this evening with the fam!!!

    Great job man and before anyone rips his head off for feeding his family do your research and understand what good harvesting can actually do for a fishery especially one with as much grass as austin. Glad it was a good day for you!

    Keeping 5 fish in that size range wouldnt unleash anyones wrath. But keeping 22, and by yourself..well..
