After reading about all the successes that folks have had on this lake, my buddy and I decided to give Lake Austin a try. We launched at the 360 bridge and we travelled up river all the way up to Steiner Ranch. We fished all the way back and caught a few 2 and 3 pounders. Fish were shallow and sticking to all kinds of structure. The lures we used were creature type baits in Watermelon red/green and texas rigged. The trip was almost over when my buddy David Townsend hooked into a beautiful 11.55 pounder. David and I have been fishing together for over 15 years and I am fortunate to have been there to witness the event and share in the experience. It was the perfect ending to the fishing trip. Special thanks to Andy Nuyen from TTZ for stopping and letting us use his scale (it is used in the Tuesday and Wednesday Night tourneys). Note to self…….I Need to buy a bigger net!!!!
