Nope Tamale, won't apply for this one.  However, anybody that catches a 14.22 plus on Travis deserves a lot more than 25 Gs!!  

The current record is 14.21 pounds and 28 inches in length, and was caught in 1993.

Good Luck to those that fish tonight...I cannot make it, due to a injury I sustained last night. Not serious, just a possibly cracked rib or two.. :(

Those pesky beavers.  

Saw one on Sunday evening near Therman Bend. That was my first Beaver I had seen on Lake Travis. It was carrying a big branch to the water. I guess setting up a crappie condo. :p
