I threw together a little jaunt to the Hill Country with Steelrain and a lurker some know as Flaco. I provided them much better grub, beer, and fishing than I'm giving y'all in photos.
We met at the Taqueria for some grub
and then headed out to my favorite river. It was a little cool, especially when we first dunked our nutz. Steelrain said it was so cold he couldn't feel his bullet holes, and I don't know if that's good or bad.
I was still finishing my last taco and 2nd beer, so Steelrain got a two fish head start on me.
There were a ridiculous number of fish swimming around us. Loads of sunfish, multiple bass up to 4 lbs, HUGE gizzard shad, and I spotted at least 6 catfish over 22". This river was down to 3 cfs two summers ago, so seeing it spring back in such abundance is a wonderful thing.
Some samples of the better, and more unique-
I can take a nice photo with a good background every now and then
That there's the lurker, and he cracked my ass up when he was plunking a small sunfish he caught in a hole where a large bass was hanging out, all while still attached to his 3wt G2.
And he's the least redneck of the three of us.

After throwing at a snooty 5lb bass that didn't like my socks and shorts pairing or something, we went back to the truck and finished off the rest of these-
We figured a hundred fish between the three of us, mostly caught on top was a pretty damn good day.[/report]
