If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, it’s no secret that I adore Texas. I lived there for a good part of my life and it’s still a second home for me. I try to go back as much as possible, as it’s one of the most geographically and piscatorially diverse states in our country. In my opinion, it’s a completely underrated gem in the fishing world, as well as just an incredible place to visit for its food, scenery, and people. It’s a marvelous place whether I’m fishing spring-fed limestone bass rivers in the Hill Country, stalking the marshes on the coast for redfish, or wiping the grease off my chin from a local BBQ joint.
