A taste of the real thing

We had a great time this last weekend.  The day started out a little later than expected but the best fishing was during the middle of day. Caught more fish than we could count and took lots of video.

I will be piecing the video together this week as there is 5 hours to go through. Hopefully there is
enough good video to give a taste of what we experienced. There is a nice piece with a bunch of rednecks who were a little too happy. Quite funny actually. :-)

Photos coming soon as well.

Tight lines y'all!

Fishing the Llano river at Robinson Park in Llano Texas

We have a bit of a treat for you this time around.  I wish I could say it was catching a lot of fish with good shots of fish splashing out of the water, but alas, we had trouble finding the fishing.  They were there, but not for long.  We even stayed until after 11pm looking for the monster bass.

The story begins about 5 minutes from the house...

You're late. Why are you late by the way?

Yes,  I am late.  We are going on a major camping trip next weekend and we've already been going
crazy to get stuff ready.  We are taking the RV out to Mason to Dos Rios RV Park right on the Llano river.

Additionally....  **NEWS FLASH**  We ordered an action camera yesterday.  A GoPro look-a-like that should be here in time for our trip.  I hope to document most of the trip down the river!

YES!  Finally real video for y'all!

But I do have a post almost ready to put up from our trip last weekend.  Hopefully I'll get it done this evening.

Tight lines y'all!

San Gabriel River Expedition

Where: San Gabriel River east of Georgetown
Access point:  Highway 29 at the low water crossing downstream from the 29 bridge.
ETA: 7:30AM
Water Temperature at 7:45am: 78F
Max Water Temperature:  83F
Water Temperature at 7:30pm: 81F
Water clarity:  Slightly stained to nearly clear (above the falls)

                                                                                                          We were ready to hit the water by 7:45am.  We were simply going to go up river for about a mile or so to the falls and stop there like we had usually done for the past 2 years.  But shortly  after we got in the water, three other kayak fishermen passed us and disappeared up and over the falls. So we decided we had to go see what it was that was causing fishermen to skip a mile of decent fishing area and hike up the river.

Getting ready to go fishing!

Looks like we'll be heading to the San Gabriel at Highway 29 in the morning!

Come join us!  We'll be paddling to the falls about a mile upstream.  We'd be happy to meet up with y'all and and enjoy the great outdoors.

ETA to river:  7:00AM CDT

Remember, the early worm gets the bass!

Here's a clip of what happened here earlier...  I got in a bit of a hurry to get the truck loaded before dark...

See you on the river!

Tight Lines,

Fishing the Llano River: White's Crossing to James River Crossing

We finally did it.  We took some friends and made the trip from White's Crossing down to James River Crossing.  It was a lot of fun and included some things that we hadn't done before.  Some of the rapids were a bit more than I was used to but fairly uneventful for most of us.

The day started off at 7AM waiting for our friends at the Dollar General in Liberty Hill.  They were coming from Cedar Park and were going to meet up with us so we could continue on together to Mason since they didn't know where we were going.

We got to White's Crossing near Mason around 9:30am and dropped the ladies off with the kayaks and the "stuff" while we went to drop off one of the trucks at the James River Crossing parking area. This is normally a 45 minute round trip but add to that a stop at the store on the way to pick up more supplies, we finally got back around 11:00am and in the river by 11:15am.

Llano River Fishing blog site and GeeksFishToo.com

Since we have started fishing the Llano river regularly, we have noticed an increase in hits on the blog site.  It would seem that it is time to split the blog up a bit and relegate this site to just Hill Country Fishing Rods news.  This news will come slower than some of the other information and occasionally will share with the fishing adventures.  But it would appear that we need to post our fishing adventures separately.

That said, we are announcing two new sites coming soon:
