Bad Bob’s Bait store reported that the fishing has been steady, with good catches of both yellow and channel cat being caught and still catching some white bass. They are using gold fish, perch, minnows and stink bait. A twenty-four lb. yellow cat was brought in by someone from San Saba.
Mike Allen, the grandson of John Byrd, caught a fifteen pound gold fish while fishing at the Brister fishing camp. It must have escaped from someone’s trot-line or maybe someone just let it go in the river. Bob has a picture of it at his store. He also reported he has a bulletin board at the store where anyone can post an upcoming event there or whatever they might have for sale.
