Began by trying Selma Hughes off bank, a couple of nibbles, no hookups. A red skeeter asked if I'd like to trade a back seat for a little info - no problem! Very nice to meet Tamale of the ABF Board! Thank you for the ride, and I'm always willing to share knowledge. There's enough for all of us.

Report: Concentrated on breaklines, rocks, with cranks, TR Worms, CRs and Senkos. Picked up about 5 or 6 keeps with a couple of dinks. Had to move slow slow slow to get bit. Highlight of the day was a 5 or 6 pounder that had Kobe-like accuracy. Tamale had him on for a minute or two, but a weak spot on the line gave way. 30 to 45 seconds later, the bigmouth jumped completely clear of the water twice. On the last jump she threw his worm back at him from 30 feet away - it landed almost right at his feet. Never seen something that funny before! Thanks again Tamale for the good time!

What a story. Would have loved to have seen that.
I had that happen once when I was a teenager in CA. I was in my float tube and was flipping a jig around a dock. I hooked a good one, but just like your story, a weak spot in my line ended it. Well, almost a minute later this 5lber came clean out of the water about 10ft from me shaking his head with my jig in his lip. The headshake worked and he tossed my jig and it came flying back and hit me in the chest! Dropped the jig right into my lap. At least I got the jig back. :cool:
Anytime Tom. It was nice to see that part of the lake, and finally know what the landmarks are. I rarely fish Lake Austin when its daylight, so I've never made it down that far before running out of light. A little different fishing, so next time I won't bring the sissy line.
Next time don't forget to call me!!!!!!! :) :) :) :)
