Back at it again to fish here for the 3rd or 4th time in a row. We keep coming back to this spot on the lake because each visit has produced big fish and I've been hoping a dreaming the elusive 40 pounder will hit my net and today was the day.

Check it out!

Weeded through some small commons at the beginning of the day. I think about 4 before catching a 22 pound common that bumps my PB up 2 pounds.

Beautiful pristine buff that hit my line while I was unhooking the large common.

Two new pbs caught in quick succession. All in a days work!

Nice looking Buff. Where I fish they have all sorts of battle scars when they're that big.


PB flathead 34.5 lbs - I know it's small but it was still the record for Lake Travis when I caught it!
PB Blue 58.5 lbs jugline 43.5 lbs on R&R which was the other Lake Travis record when caught.

wow those are all great fish congrats that spot looks awesome.
when weighing fish use the top of the scale holding it by the sides to pick up will give you inaccurate weights.
