launched from Red Bud Isle today at 3:00PM.  Fished Tom Miller for awhile with no takers.  Decided to go downstream and hit the banks up and was able to find some fish.  Caught 6 fish today with the best being around 3-4lbs.  A few dinks as well.  Was fishing tx rig baby rattlesnake in trophy hunter color.  This was the maiden voyage of my Birthday/Christmas present.  
Here are a few pics of the better fish.

Is this bass a spotted or a guadalupe?

Probably a hybrid "Smadalupe" bass. From everything I've read on it the pure guads are gone for the most part. Supposedly there are a few stretches of rivers that have been restocked with pure strains of Guadalupe bass, but from what I've read about the follow up genetic tests they are cross breeding with largemouths in those river systems as well.

Thats interesting, I always thought that Town lake was one of the few places that you could catch pure strains of Guadalupe bass.  It does appear to have some similar markings of a largemouth.

I've always been told the way to tell the difference between a spotted and guadalupe bass is the broken diamond shaped dark markings of the guad, and the rounded connected dark markings of the spotted.

Either way, pound for pound they fight like champs! I have been embarrassed several times thinking I had a 5 pound LMB on when it ended up being a 1.5 pound guad.
