August 9th 2006 - "The Pond"
From time to time Texas Park & Wildlife collects brood stock out of "The Pond." I have been fortunate to be part of this effort 3 or 4 times. It truly is an honor. They collect Reds, Trout, Flounder at different times of the year, ship them to supplement their brood stock so that our bay system can be filled with game fish. They do an incredible job.
During either Rita or Katrina last year, they lost a good portion of their brood stock. I had the privilege of helping to replenish part of that stock today. It was a great day for the Specks that were collected.
We caught many many Reds and Specks - well they caught specks - I caught Reds. This was the average size - and this fish was just beautiful.
