We braved wild country, homeless dudes, cops, and adults on tricycles. It was friggin' brutal - but worth it.

The hike in was a bitch.

The fish cooperated.

Biggest white amur / grass carp to date for me.

New species for the life list - buffalo, aka gaspergou. This guy got air, I shit you not.

GB starting in on a Bait Slam - needed a crab and a piggie perch to complete it.

We were stopped by three of Houston's finest aboard their mountain bikes. They didn't know quite what to make of us, and had to call into headquarters to make sure what we were doing was all legal-like and everything. We got off with having our names taken down. Sadly, they did not want their picture taken with us.

Now that's some funny stuff right there!

I'm shaking my head about the bicycle cops though--what the fuck? Like there isn't enough real crime in Houston to contend with.

Fun post.

People kept yelling, "HEY! TOM SELLECK!" I'd look around, but figured they were talking to my buddy. I never did see Tom Selleck out there.

Hey man, you saw the shirt. Only a hardened criminal would step out in that. Or a dork.

No shit. The body "upstream" hung in the shopping cart gave it an awful smell.

That would be the new and improved 1-10 East, heading into downtown. That is White Oak Bayou. Oh shit, now I've gone and hotspotted H-town's Carp Shangra La. GPS coords and red shirts to follow. :smile

Edit: Now that I look at it, I think that is the on-ramp to I-10 W from 45 S, or the HOV lane. The lower level is I-10 W.
