Another dam but unfortunately, did not bring the fly rod. Two generators running, favorite spots were underwater. Made the adjustment to surf casting gear. Not fly fishing but may of interest to those looking for a spot to try fly fishing from the bank...

Denison Dam Fishing for Gar... by Chance Anyone?

Fished Denison Dam Saturday morning. Initially, planned to bring a Switch Rod to fish Clousers in the runs, pockets, and pools before they started generating power.

Quick check of the real-time hydroelectric data and the planned schedule showed two generators online for 24 hours Friday and into Saturday, and possibly Sunday.

Adjusted to surf casting gear and fished Shad and Chicken Livers... no strikes when fishing a bottom rig. Action was all with Shad fished 2' to 4' from a float.

Fished from sunrise to 2PM in the afternoon... No Striped Bass. It was all Gar that were biting this round!all fish caught and release were Gar. Looked like the Striped Bass were not wanting to bite this round.

Do check back will add details on the float rig we used in the video. Float used was the... Launcher Float size 5", 1-3/4OZ

Fun times!

FYI... follow up video on the fishing rig we used. May be of interest to some who opt to bring the surf rods.

TPWD answers our question about Shad! Can I catch shad with a cast net from one lake, freeze them for later use at another lake?

We like using Shad for bait but at times cannot purchase them because the local bait store is out of stock. This is why we like to catch our own plus it saves us money – cost of the cast net and time and effort to catch them, etc…

However, due to restrictions related to aquatic invasive species and the transfer from one body of water to another, we have followed Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s (TPWD) regulations that limit using Shad for bait to the same body of water where they were caught.

Our understanding was the same body of water limitation was for live, fresh, and frozen shad. For clarification, we contacted Texas Parks and Wildlife Department via their online “Submit a Question” form.

Looks like we can catch Shad from one lake, remove any of the water with the fish, using a net to move the fish from one container to another so no water is transferred from lake to lake!

Casting a Micro Fly Rod Demo #microflyrod #microflyfishing

Here is the follow up video we mentioned on one of our earlier iFishNews Fishing Podcast and YouTube video about Micro Fly Rods.

This video shows five micro flyrods - three are ones we made and have a micro flyreel mounted on them, and two are practice fly rods from Redington and Orvis with a flyreel zip tied to the handle.

We marked 25 feet as a reference, and then cast the rods to show the 25 feet distance is readily attained.

There was a strong crosswind and one of the rods had less than 25 feet of line but overall all rods could easily cast 25 feet.

That said, based on time fishing with them, there are several that can cast well past 25 feet.

Fun stuff...

Made it to New Braunfels for some fishing fun. Planned to fish the Guadalupe River by Faust Street Bridge, but it was closed.

Headed to Landa Park and fished the Comal River. Was a slow bite with only one Bluegill and a Bass caught.

Both went for a Guadalupana!

Kayaking the Guadalupe...

Had fun Friday on the Guadalupe River kayaking and fishing. Water flow was slow; mainly paddled upstream and observed the "tube hatch" as we kayaked to the 3rd Crossing.

Did catch a couple of Bluegill and a little Bass. Caught one using a Kastmaster with its hooks removed and a trailing scud. Caught the other two using a Roostertail.

Although the fishing was slow, gotta a good workout in paddling upriver and downriver!

Happy 4th of July!

More Gulp Garlic Marinade "Testing" #underwatervideo #fishing

Second test of the Gulp Garlic Marinade. Another inconclusive test that requires us to continue testing to answer the question... Does Gulp Garlic Marinade work?

This round, it appeared the fish liked the Gulp when initially treated with scent, but once diluted after soaking in the pond after several casts, it was not certain if it made a difference to the fish.

Lesson learned... need to reapply the Gulp often. Will try this next round!
