Epic Houston Texas Bayou Fishing 3


The mission today is to catch fish in under two hours using a new setup that I am very excited to start using! This includes my Shimano Stratic 1000 that I have used before, as well as a Steelhead rod that I have never combined this way before. Hopefully, some carp come our way after this cold front in Houston, so let's get fishing!

I'm using a tiny ned head today with a swivel, so the goal is to be as lightweight as possible. I'm keeping my hand on the line to detect bites, which came almost immediately. To my surprise, there was a giant catfish in this spot which may have actually been my biggest yet!

Shortly thereafter, I continued to find success with another large grass carp to add to my list! I have been fortunate with two catches in two casts so far because the current is keeping my bread bait afloat in the mid-water column.

It may seem like these videos show me catching fish on every single cast that I throw out, but that is not always the case. However, today has been one of my luckier days because of the weather, but I like to think that my setup is also playing a part! The next catch was a channel catfish, but much smaller than the big boy we caught first.

Now, do I want to catch a tilapia to complete the Bayou Slam or go for another large carp? On days like this, it feels like you can catch just about anything. With a little help from my net, I secured another huge fish to top off an incredible day! I would have to say the grass carp was the highlight of my day, and keep in mind I was only out here for less than 2 hours.

Brays Bayou Fishing – The Slam!

Brays Bayou Fishing - The Slam! 4


Hello, everyone! Today we are in a spot that I like to call “The Bend” in Brays Bayou, which is a spot that I recently tried out with my friend Stefano. He had a ton of success with a wide variety of fish so I'm hoping that hot streak continues for me today. Let's go fishing!

I'm working with a heavy setup today, including Wonder bread on the ned rig, mashed up as always. In this spot, the fish tend to hold in a very distinct area between a patch of grass and what I would refer to as an “out jut” with a bit of current behind it. I'm not sure what's going on near that grass but there are usually a ton of fish there, including grass carp, catfish, and tilapia, so that's my target to start things out.

After I noticed my first bite, I had an inclination that it might be a grass carp or catfish and it ended up being the latter. By the way, this is step one of my Bayou Slam! I felt a snag on the next fish and it seemed like he was just hanging there in the current, and it ended up being a great looking tilapia!

After a fairly long delay between the second and third portion of my Bayou Slam, I'm starting to worry when I look at the clock before sundown. I have maybe 15 minutes before this challenge gets significantly harder in the dark, but I started off with a strong cast. It took a bit of work to bring him in but I wound up with a giant beast of a grass carp! This fantastic fighter was definitely one of the bigger carps I have ever reeled in at the bayou!
