Fishin’s good in Austin!
Out at the point of Red Bud Isle, these two guys were doing better than fishing, they were catching!

Complete with two weigh stations, this crew looked like they were after some mysterious Loch Ness type beast. Within a few minutes, the guys became excited as two of their fishing poles bent with promise.
They reeled in two huge carp and before they could weigh the second and pose for a photo, another pole began to show action. It was almost sunset on a regular Saturday afternoon, with a concert underway on the other side of the river at Auditorium Shores, and this group of fishermen were gathering lots of attention as people wowed at the size of these fish they were catching!
I’m pretty sure they were only fishing for sport, or just to show people what’s in the water. I didn’t ask them because they were very busy at the time with what seemed like a feeding frenzy around their hooks.
