Howdy from Round Rock Texas! I have lived in Texas all my life and have been fishing sense i understood how a rod and reel worked! Thanks to my mom for teaching me! Im still young at 29 and still learning! There was a pretty big gap in my life where collage, boys and life just prevented me from doing ANY fishing. but now im back in the swing of it. I LOVE to get catfish! so far my biggest catch is a whooping 26 inches long and 6.8 pounds flat head cat. I know I know, Not very big but its big for me! and i LOVED the fight!!! Right now i use live perch as its easy to get at the local Pond near me and my place to fish, I have been going there all my life pretty much. Its a stocked pond, and there are that i have personally fished out are channel cat and flat head, according to the stock reports there are blue cat in there as well. I have also been told a few fish tails of some whoopers of cats in there, one guy claims he got a 35 inch cat, i can believe that, but another guy claims he got a 50 pounder out of there. that's a little more harder to believe lol But anything can happen! this place has two nice coves that people rarely ever go in because there only accessible by boat. and i have only seen one boat go in there and i never saw them get a catfish. Also there are bass and carp in there, the carp are fun to get if your looking for a fight! I have herd mixed feelings about them being good to eat, if they are, Let me know! because those suckers take bread bait like its nothing! For fun one day to see how many I could get in the span of 4 hours catch and release of course, i fished out 9 in 4 hours. to me that's quite a bit!
Aside from Round Rock west park and Rabb park which has a section of brushy creek to fish out of where are some other easy access fishing places in Round Rock??? I have mobility issues because of my back so the places have to be super easy to get to! If you have any tips or pointers of what other bait i could use as well im all ears!
Thanks for reading my rambling!
