    Re: Lake Austin - Four Fish, Forty Pounds

    Who didn't think there'd be a little bit of a lull between the time the lake filled up and the fish became reacclimated to their former surroundings...

    Congrats on an amazing day!!!


    I have to admit that the video's somewhat confusing, tho... in regard to the c/r aspect...

    Yeah, the video makes it seem like every fish was released immediately after it was caught, but that's clearly not the case with the shots of all 4 fish lying on the deck. Not that it really matters, it just makes the video a little confusing that's all.

    And Waylon... I'm surprised and not surprised at the same time with where Jr. was fishing. Thinking back to last year's Wednesday nighters... that's a very familiar looking creek in the background. :

    Lol, what a JOKE of a video.... I especially like the one that is belly-up as it is being brought to the boat.

    How long were those in the livewell before you re-hooked them and filmed?
    Solid.

    Well, it is a little fishy as the video does not add up. *We see him release the fish (at least two after the catch), but in the beginning we see all four LM barely moving on the deck.

    The catch time is quite remarkable as well, in which Wild Bill was referring to the belly-up landing. *I caught a 8.6 on Sunday from Travis. *The 8.6 took about three-four minutes to bring in on a rattle-trap with 20 lb fluorocarbon. *It's hard to move a big fish quickly unless you have 65 lb braid. *I could be wrong due to the temp of Lake Austin being cold making the fish sluggish. *Of course, the surface temp on travis was 52 on Sunday.

    I think JR made the right call, but please tell me if I'm wrong. *Was this a stunt for future clients? * I think I would have believed the story with just pictures. *It is possible to catch a stringer like this...look at Bass Champs at Falcon this last weekend.

    To see all the those large fish was exciting, but the video seems suspect.
