It was a great trip. Saturday T100 (Jason), Firefly49 (Lynne), MILRET (John), On The Guad (Robert) and I launched from FM 969. Robert and Jason fished hard on their way down while Lynne, John and I floated, visited, took a lot of photos and just generally relaxed only casting occassionally. The three of us hit the big island about 4:00 just beating a Pack of Boy Scouts to the prime spot. They checked with us and set up about 50' away. Never have I had such polite teens that near. They were I think all asleep 10 minutes after dark and were quiet at all times. John, Lynn and I set camp and made coffee continuing to relax. A quick consensus and it was agreed we would not have a fire. Robert and Jason pulled in about 7:30. John disappeared about 9:00 and the rest of us called it a night at 10:00.
Sunday morning we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast before Robert and Jason packed up to go. Robert caught a really nice bass right there at camp as he left. The rest of us acted liked kids all day swimming, building a rock castle and paddling a little. It was just a fun day in good company.
Monday we ate and packed at a easy pace reluctant to leave. Finally we struck out about 10:30 and landed in Bastrop about 1:30. It was a great trip.
