    The SECRET to Bastrop schoolies revealed!!!

    (Posting in Black Bass Fishing Reports because of the many links to fishing reports below.)

    The reason for this post is because apparently Hubbs and I are in BIG trouble with a small group of anglers for disclosing the TOP SECRET concept of using launchers on Lake Bastrop. We actually received a phone call today from someone who asked us to contact Patrick (The German) and have him remove the photo showing a launcher tied on. Oh, we're also supposed to tell Patrick to delete the fact that we caught 101 bass.

    To those responsible for today's phone call:
    • Launchers on Bastrop with a Pet spoon, fluke, grub, or tornado IS NOT A FRIGGING SECRET. Below are some of the links to posts on this particular forum regarding launchers on Bastrop. Other fishing forums also have dozens of posts about it and, like on ABF, they go back for YEARS. It's not a secret concept and it's not a new concept.
    • In none of Patrick's pictures or description is the particular set-up that we used on Sunday.
    • If we receive another phone call on the subject like the one we received today, I can promise you that the next thing I post on this forum is a close-up detailed photo of the exact rig we used on Sunday. I'm not kidding.
    Get the picture?

    I would like to know who called you? Bastrop schoolies have been getting pounded for years and they don't seem to be any worse for the wear.

    John, CD received the call and he's a much nicer person than I am. It was from a guy who said he'd received 4 phone calls from his other fishing buddies complaining that we were blowing wide open the secret to Bastrop schoolies. I have no idea who these other 4 guys are. This is the only way I know to pass along the message to them.

    No, the launcher rig isn't a secret anymore but I am willing to bet somebody taught/told you about it. Would that person still have told you if he/she knew you were going to blast it all over the internet? Or maybe it goes a few links up the information chain? 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.

    That is why it remains important to post fishing reports that are completely full of crap from time to time.
