Rick (Zertis) and I fished Lake Austin yesterday. Rick has never fished this lake, so I gave him a some what tour of the place. We threw swim baits, crank baits, and plastic. If I remember right, all of our fish were taken on plastic. We used lizards, flukes, worms, creatures, and sinkoes. The catch rate was about even on the color of plastic we used which was water melon, and red shad. Ninety five percent of our plastic was fished on a T/R, but we also tried C/R and weightless.  Here again my numbers may be off a little, but I think we caught like fifteen bass in all. Out of those fifteen, we only caught like six keepers. Our best five would have been around 12 pounds. Not to good, but we had a great time just like we always do.

We pitched at docks, and mainly came up with dinks.
Moved out into the 12 to 14 FOW where there’s some grass and that’s where our keeper fish were caught.

Rick did stick one nice bass on this trip. It weighed in at 4.11 lbs. I’m going to say one thing about this bass, she really had some nice color to her. Her belly was full and she was extremely healthy looking. Really nice looking fish.

Well Rick oh buddy, you are now hooked on Lake Austin. She coughed up a nice fish, and I’m sure you’re ready to hit it again.

Here’s a snap shot of Rick’s fish. Congrats my friend, nice catch on your first trip.

Awesome catch Brad.

I'm guessing you caught that fish in the same area where we met you at? There were some good fish showing up on the graph in this area, but very few takers.

That might be a pretty good guess Fishy. I guess my post must be one of the "missing links" I have been hearing about. I too am now a victim. The other report said something like...
Brushhog in 12 FOW. I only landed 2 fish in the 2 hours I was out there. 9lbr, and 6". I had several strong hits on a swimbait, but nothing stuck. After the hook set, I though she might be a 4. I was pretty surprised when she came up. She jumped three times. On a whim I loaded up my flipping rod with the brushhog, so I had 60 lb braid, and 20 lb floro leader. VERY comforting when you see you have a big girl on. Don't think I can make Saturday. Prior youth group commitment. I think you will see plenty of hogs on Saturday. To be honest with you, I have an anxiety attack just thinking about your tournament. All day for one hog... May the force be with all of you who are in! If you don't get a DD or two to the scales, I will be shocked.
