Default Float with a Fish Stretcher- TR


Fished a favorite stretch with my Father in Law Friday.

I told him that bass was damn fine for a Guadalupe, but he still tried to make it longer. I'll let the pics tell the rest of the tale.

That water is very scenic. Looked like a fun trip. Was that cat hybridized with a snakehead? Looked to have qualities of both.

Looks like a regular old channel cat to me.

True. The dot in close proximity to the caudal fin appears to be a lesion and not a marking. My mistake

I think it was actually a wound. It was in a shallow stretch and a raptor likely targeted it.
