View Full Version : Catching is tough on Lake Austin

Brother and I went out three times this week. Water temp 60-64, lots of current, fish scattered, but three caught one of the three days. We also caught some different specie:
Yes, that is a football that my brother snagged at 25. Might have to filet that for supper (smile).

The other day of all things to catch I snagged a horseshoe but it didn't give me any luck on the crappie.

Wish I ketched a football .....that’s one thing I ain’t never drug up from the depths for sure .
You might try some a that there spider rigging they do bro .
Lots of spots crappie suspend ....it might be your lucky card to play there ?

Oh, heck, Ketchn, my daddy would roll over in his grave if he heard we were trolling much less what we now call spider rigging. If you were not holding a rod you were handing him a beer or sandwich.

I don't use more than 2 rods under any circumstances my self ….but I have been known to lay one down with a jig in the water and one in my hand ….and very rarely hold one in each hand as well …..kinda like baby spider rigging I guess ….but only when I am super duper desperate to get a bite ….. :Rofl

I use as many rods as I can manage because I am always desperate to get a bite.:Rofl
