TTZ Tuesday nighter

I finally got the chance to fish the Texas Tournament Zone's tuesday night workingmans tournament on Travis last night. I teamed up with Justin Reiger and headed out into the 25mph+ winds.... On the way out, I broke half a blade off my trolling motor prop, so we fished with a rattling motor all evening. We found fish with crankbaits and senkos and ended up in 2nd place out of 15 boats, for a $135 payout. The first place team was Dean Alexander, so I guess if we were gonna get beat by someone, it might as well be an Elite Series pro! On the way in, we found a lighted dock that was loaded up with fish, so we stayed out an extra hour or two catching fish under the lights. Fun night of fishing!!! There was a giant thunderhead off in the distance at sunset. The view of it from the lake was incredible. We didn't get a picture, but this is it from another angle.... Right at sunset, it looked like an A-bomb went off...

Long time coming

Here's Stephen Gustafson with a real nice Laguna Madre Trout caught on his LSU themed 7'6" Phenix 706M. The postal service mangled the first version of this rod, so after a patient wait, I finally got the replacement to him and turned the original into a 2 piece. Glad to see they're being put to good use!!!
