I just got my Lone Star Pass and will be doing some overnight camping at Pace Bend this summer.Pace bend has plenty of places to fish for cats.
Build a campfire, pull some chairs up to the water and drink beer fishing from there at night. Fish for bass during he day from your kayak. Or set some jug lines, we've had luck out there with them in the coves.I just got my Lone Star Pass and will be doing some overnight camping at Pace Bend this summer.
My friend was just talking about us doing some catfish fishing so guess I will concentrate on Pace Bend since it is close to him. I will have to do my research on catfish techniques out of a kayak since I have been more involved in bass fishing.
Once I get my 14' Gamefisher up here, get the OB mounted on it & get boat/trailer registered in TX, I'll start mapping the underwater structures & then work Lake Travis like a "pea patch".
Until then, I'm just looking for a few spots to fish off the bank for a few weeks.
(Fwiw, I went looking for places to launch a boat this PM & "stumbled across" a couple of "fishy looking" spots.)
Reference: "don't tell anyone" there are MILLIONS of fish out there & telling people a general area to start "prospecting" hurts NOBODY.
(As I said, "our crowd" in SA go out of our way to help new residents to The Alamo City "get situated", so I find it "curious" that I've received NO help whatever on this site.)
well, i could say something, and i will. YOU'RE NOT BEING VERY FRIENDLY YOURSELF, DUDE! lolstcow1,
Yep. - I joined yesterday & had I asked the exact same question on the SA forum, I would have had at least 6-10 positive responses by the end of the 1st day. = So pardon me for suggesting that the Austin group is "rather unhelpful" to newcomers to town.
Further, your comment about "over-fishing" has been fully considered & discounted to its actual value to this discussion: zilch.
(In 60+ years of fishing, I've not seen a single instance of anything bigger than a farm pond being "fished out", presuming that the lake/stream/river is reasonably healthy.)
As to "catch & release", you should ask a fish biologist about the percentage of "released fish" that live through the experience, long term. = The actual percentage is quite low.
(That's why a considerable percentage of fish biologists are dead-set against "competitive fishing tournaments".)
As to "all caps", it's been my long experience that people who gripe/carp/complain/whine/whimper about minor things like typos, awkward syntax, "all caps", miss-spelled words & other similar minor things, have little of importance to contribute to a discussion among adults & just are being "small-minded"/hateful and/or they just want to say "something", even when they would do better to reserve comment/remain silent.
A Personal Note: You might consider removing "dude" from your comments to any mature man. = It's a sure sign of a smart-A$$ (& generally not very bright) kid's attempt at a "put down" & every man over 40YO, that I know, despises & is insulted being addressed by that term.
just my opinions, satx
