Default Lake House Fish Display

Well we are heading to Buchanan for at least 5 Days starting Thursday and my buddy has been wanting a fish display for our catches. Least I could do since we get the pleasure of using the lake house with them. Not much to it, but decided to use cedar bacon board just for ****s and giggles. Turned out pretty good, now ready to fill it up with big cats this weekend!Name:  IMG_1923.jpg

The lake house is on the south side on S Chaparral St, we go really well on a big flat next to deep water in that area

That's awesome man, that's about how deep we caught them last year, we are going to try hard this year to get on them with rod and reel, still trying to learn the lake as far as rod and real fishing goes. I would love to find some strippers, where is the best place to cast net shad?
