Would that person told the person who told you if he knew it would be blasted all over the internet? And so on and so forth, so you should be able to see how the original launcher rig guys are a little butt hurt.

    At one time, like a lot of fishing information and locations it was a gentleman's agreement to keep it quite. Then somebody had a few too many bud lights and before you know it all in the open.
    Terry, IF there were no other posts on this forum about using launchers on Bastrop, I certainly wouldn't tell people I do. But the fact is that there are many posts about it. Out of the 25 or so boats fishing side-by-side with us out there on Sunday, 20 were using launchers. To blast us for Patrick's report is ridiculous.

    The only secret to what we were using is the actual bait and Patrick did as instructed and revealed nothing about it. I even went to the trouble of re-bagging the baits so no one could see the original packaging and asked him to return any unused baits.

    Yeah, I think anyone out there fishing schoolies can tell pretty quickly what people are doing. I find the call to be pretty asinine.

    Only rookies use launchers. I had my pet spoon flung across the lake with a potato cannon.

    My only complaint was the butthole who saw me tearing up schoolies away from the dam and proceeded to boat right through them, twice. Then couldn't catch one and asked what I was using after scaring them off for good.

    I think we are saying the same thing and you are making my point. The reasons for it being all over the internet is what I described. The call was pointless, guess there is still some butthurt.
