Its been a while since i've posted here cause San Antonio has a two months trout season... :/
but just to keep everyone up to date with what i've been doin...
i worked the whole summer at a carwash and saved up 1.6k and got myself a 1432 Jon boat, trailer, and 50Lbs Minn Kota trolling motor (goin at a full two knots!
My boat with the deck me and a buddy built. (yes its astroturf!
here is the first fish i caught in the boat too... 24"
I've been using the old baitcaster (i know i know, i don't belong here) catching some red fish at braunig lake. There is a power plant feeding water into the lake and we learned whenever they pump water in if we use a silver with blue on top rattlertrap or pure silver spoon we will get hit after hit by red drum and stripers!
so i went out got an 8wt basspro rod and reel combo (gonna have to upgrade the reel so i can use it at the coast!) and three flys... with the same color as my rattletraps.
I have not caught anything over 1lb so i've just been pulling in my fish... but as soon as i get a fish within 10 yards of my boat they take off! any advice for those trophy fish (my friend's dad caught a 40 inch red there! so i'm pretty nervous about this trip sunday).
