Another Beautiful Day for Just About Anything, So Let’s Go Fishing

Nothing like December in Austin to take in the sights and sounds of Lady Bird Lake from a kayak while honing your angling skills at the same time. Such was the case for Chicago transplant Patrick Monckton as he trolls the shallow waters of the Barton Creek tributary near Lou Neff Point before it turns into Lady Bird Lake. His kayak is complete with five fishing poles and a fish finder. “This is great weather.” said Patrick who fishes at least twice a week. “I’ve been catching and releasing some bass.”  He is joined by two domestic geese at left and a Chinese goose at right.

  1. Thats my cousin and my best friend. He is a wonderful person and 2 days ago he saved a 26 year old’s life. Patrick is a hero and I hope to be as good of a healthcare provider as he is when I graduate.
    Love you buddy,
    Dan

    • That is awesome. He was cool to talk to and I’m glad I got the opportunity to meet him. SHow him the picture if he hasn’t seen it already.
