Lime green & Pewter

Here's the latest rod fresh off the dryer! It's a Rainshadow RX8 XSB822.5 with spiraled Fuji titanium 3.5 micro guides, a minima reel seat, and Gudebrod metallic lime green & pewter thread.

Snorkeling in Lake Travis!!

Rachel and I went on a little snorkeling/fishing trip this afternoon. I took some pics of these little fish I've been trying to ID:

After some asking around, I figured out that they are Texas Logperch. Cool little fish!

I also found a Rio Grande Cichlid:

And some bass:

I ended up fishing a little right before dark and caught 2 pretty decent bass on a white fluke. Great time on the water! Four new rods coming soon, stay tuned!!

Bent rod!

Here's some shots that Tim O'Brien sent me of his new rod in action. These pics really show the backbone of the Phenix S700M blank! Nice pics Tim!

Fishing quote of the day...

Catch and release fishing is a lot like golf. You don't have to eat the ball to have a good time!!

Lake Travis - 6/3/10

I hit lake Travis for a few hours this afternoon and decided to concentrate on marinas only. I fished a white fluke, a white spinnerbait, and a 3" swimbait in Easy street marina and Jones Harbor marina. I ended up with 7 bass with 2 keepers. Nothing picture worthy, but it was a pretty fun trip....
