Fished Hamilton Creek Park Lake in Burnet, Texas yesterday. There was a big turnout of fishermen. Very easy place to fish for trout. Plenty of space for everyone. Lots of tree limbs and holiday lights to hang up on. The big aerators were fish magnets. Had a great day! Caught my share of fish. I gave gave fish to folks that were keeping and released the rest for somebody else to catch

Today I fished the small lake inside Palmetto State Park. The lake is very small and shallow. My first time there. Enjoyed seeing and talking to Banker Always Fishing. Banker and Steve were about to leave when I got there at about 11:00. They left with 2 limits and I fished where they had been fishing. Again I gave fish away and released many more. There were quite a few folks fishing but it was orderly and I didn’t hear a cross word. I did hear a bit of grumbling. HaHa! I had. One of those epic days!

I don’t know the kids in the picture. The expressions on their faces said it all! They were both holding trout!

Always a pleasure Sir. The best enjoyments fishing the trout stockings is meeting up with friends and knowing they are doing well. You were putting on a "Fishing Clinic" catching a fish with just about every cast! The anglers on the other side of the pond were just watching you and wondering what you were using for bait. Of course the trout catching lure for the Texas Rainbow Trout. The God Super Duper Lure! hooked Me and Steve went back Friday and easily limited out again. We also helped a father and son who were having a hard time catching em. Ended up giving them 6. Enjoyed meeting up with you, and I am sure we will be meeting up a lot more down the way. thumb


Side Note. The above picture is totally "PRICELESS" ! cheers

I plan on fishing Hamilton Creek Park Lake another time or two before The Blue Hole gets fish next Friday. I’m not going to the Blue Hole until about 2:00 to avoid the morning stampede of folks. Then I’ll fish there until I can’t catch a limit. BH is about 15 minutes from our house.

Good to see y’all! Stay safe!

Fished 45 minutes before the Cowboy game started at Blue Hole Park. There were probably 100 people that I could see fishing. I gave away/released10 before I left. Epic!! The fish wanted a very slow moving gold SDL today. Great time as usual!

Caught 10 more at the Blue Hole earlier today. Donated to a group that were not catch many.
Going to visit BHP tomorrow before the cold front arrives. Then I won’t fish there or anywhere for several days.
BHP HAS BEEN GREAT THIS SEASON!

BANKER, could I talk to you about smoking these beautiful fish? The cooking type smoking

Only lure I have used this season is gold SDL. Very. Very slow retrieve. The Chinese SD’s work just fine. They are packaged as Blue Fox Spoons. I did apply WTP DECORATIVE TAPE to the ones that I bought. Easy Peasy!

A friend of mine smokes them and gives then back to me. I have a bag air sealed and frozen that I can give you the next time we meet up! They are awesome and go good with Wheat Thin crackers and cheese. Also good with crackers, hot sauce, and cheese. food


Side Note: Cherry and Apple wood can be used. The ones I have were smoked with Mesquite. thumb

Sounds delicious. I assume he smokes them whole. Does he have a fancy smoker or does he improvise with a gas grille or charcoal grille? We do need to meet up. The trout season is winding down quickly!

Still rainbows to be caught at a Blue Hole Park GTX. Had one limit in less than an hour. It’s amazing how slow the retrieve has to be. Gave away 6 rainbows and released a small bluegill in about an hour and 15 minutes. The usual tackle, lure and pattern. I had a great time!!
