Ep50: 106 Fish
Fishing Team starts off season 3 after a long hiatus of recording with an ambitious scheme to catch a hundred fish in a day! We’ll gloss over whether that was going to be a hundred fish each, or a hundred fish total, but 106 fish is pretty much a success either way. This is also the first socially distanced quarantine LCPC episode. Places visited, Mabel Davis Park, Blunn Creek, and Shoal Creek. Fish caught include lots of sunfish, puppy bass, cichlids, and even a few Mexican tetra. Yes, there’s definitely some low balling involved here to pump up the numbers!

Ep49: Bey’s Fourth Cert
The epic quest for TPWD elite status nears its stunning conclusion, as Matthew lands a certificate-worthy rainbow trout. This is an only That Wasn’t That Bad episode, so you don’t have to listen to Matthew drop his phone in the water several times while trying to get a pick of a struggling and slippery fish lying next to a tape measure in shin-deep water. Discussed this episode, the frustration of fishing the Guadalupe River and the cooking advice of P.J. and Apple Stoop.

Ep48: Port Aransas Bank Fishing
This special all That Wasn’t That Bad episode follows the inshore fishing trip Jamey and Matthew took to Port Aransas in December 2019. They describe catching fish off the pier in Bayside, the Caldwell Pier in Port A, and the sheepshead off the Packery Jetty. Also a long review of Texas Seafood by PJ and Apple Stoop. Some of the more unusual catches, Matthew caught a pompano, a harry blenny, and an actual squid. Jamey caught a puffer fish, as well as a Bermuda chub, a fish the Stoops reveal as having a habit of eating dolphin poop! This episode edited by Matthew Bey. Here’s some bonus content, actual videos! First a squid caught with an eging lure on the Caldwell Pier in Port Aransas. And finally, a tanker wake at the Port Aransas shipping channel which comes very close to washing over the wall.

Ep47: Lake Travis EDM
Lake Travis is a party lake, so Fishing Team tackles it in this episode with a party state of mind. They put to the test Matthew’s crazy scheme to use a tarp and a waterproof bluetooth speaker playing electronic dance music. Also a special “that wasn’t that bad” crossover segment with Matthew and Jamey’s other podcast, Bad Roll Models! This episode edited by Jamey.

Ep46: Hula Hut Carp
This episode finds Fishing Team (aka Jamey and Matthew) in the canoe out at their secret honey hole for carp and catfish. Just kidding, they’re sitting right next to the Hula Hut restaurant in plain view of everyone. In fact, Jamey gets a standing ovation for his extraordinary fishingness!

Ep45: Lady Bird Lake in Summer
It’s the high heat of the summer, and for some reason Jamey and Matthew are out in the canoe on Lady Bird trying to catch some stuff. There’s a few small fish caught and a conversation about Rapala and Champagne tastes. That Wasn’t That Bad taped during dinner at Taco More on Austin’s Riverside Road.

Ep44: The Cichlid Cert
So this episode doesn’t have the best sound quality. We might have just scrapped this one, but early on, Matthew catches a certificate-sized Rio Grande cichlid, cane poling it right out of Lady Bird Lake. This episode marks the first time Fishing Team caught one of the trophy fish on actual direct audio like a real-live grown-up podcast! And it’s also the halfway mark on our Quest for Elite!

Ep43: Fishing in the Danger Zone – Colorado River Guadalupe Bass
Our Fishing Team goes to the Colorado River near Austin, hunting the state fish, the Guadalupe bass. Not to spoil anything, but from the pics you can see that they did indeed catch a Guadalupe. As Matthew and Jamey were a bit giddy from a live podcast taping at Armadillocon the night before, there’s more than the usual amount of singing, non-sequiturs, and petty one-upsmanship. Also, I should have been noting this sort of thing all along, but this episode has been edited by Jamey.

Ep42: County Line BBQ Grass Carp
It’s a last minute and poorly executed after-work trip to the County Line BBQ, which sits on a spur of Lake Austin. Fishing team takes advantage of fishes’ love of BBQ bread and hooks up on grass carp, catfish, and plenty of sunfish. It’s the longest fight sequence since They Live, so don’t miss it!

Ep41: Jamey’s Big Dang Carp
A bit of a spoiler, this is the episode where Jamey catches a great big carp. He’s already got his Big Fish Award for it, and he’s very proud of himself, you can be sure. Also included in this episode, Las Trancas tacos and a torta. If there’s something better than carp and street cart food, I want to hear about it.

Ep40: Do You Believe in Life After Lake Travis?
Our intrepid fisherguys take it to Lake Travis at Sandy Creek Park to try and catch something, anything they could call a trophy. It doesn’t quite go that well, but it also doesn’t go that poorly. There are tilapia sightings, fish in the hand, and some badly recalled Cher songs. The post Ep40: Do You Believe in Life After Lake Travis? appeared first on Last Cast Podcast.

Ep39: Southeast Metropolitan Park Odyssey
Even people who have spent years in Austin don’t know that just past the airport there’s a county park with beautiful hiking trails and oddly productive pond fishing. Jamey and Matthew go to Southeast Metropolitan Park and they find plenty of fish deep down into the woods. Afterward they eat the surprisingly good cheeseburger at Pollo Rico. It’s an afternoon of undiscovered pleasures indeed! The post Ep39: Southeast Metropolitan Park Odyssey appeared first on Last Cast Podcast.

Ep38: Walter’s Back Door to Paradise
The gentlemen of fishing, Jamey and Matthew, take the long way to Lake Walter E. Long and take a stab at catching some largemouth bass and crappies. The long-anticipated giant cichlids don’t show, but they do get to weather close-quarter shotgun blasts. Matthew makes an easy “your-mama” dig, and Jamey does a lot of swearing.

Ep37: Fish in the Sea, Shel
Jamey sits this episode out, but in his place is budding super-fisherman and nephew to Matthew, Shel. They go crabbing and catch a bunch of blue crabs using chicken backs on a string, and then Shel loses Matthew’s phone. You won’t want to miss what happens next!

Ep36: Live Podcast Taping Fish Fry
You might ask yourself, how can a fishing podcast have a live taping in front of an audience of its fervent fans? Well, Jamey and Matthew have been saving all those white bass and that one tilapia they caught, and they unleashed it on their public in one giant orgy of eating. The fish fry podcast taping has a spontaneous MTV Real World-style confessional and an extensive “That Wasn’t That Bad” segment with the sort of frank honesty you can only get from people who have just eaten quite a lot.

Ep35: Fayette Spinners
Jamey and Matthew brave the wind and vultures of Lake Fayette and manage to bring in some bass. Nothing says spring like some pre-spawn bass action! The post Ep35: Fayette Spinners appeared first on Last Cast Podcast.

Ep34: Camp Tejas White Wonderland
Jamey and Matthew travel to the north for a hatefully early trip to the Georgetown environs to target white bass. Afterward, they fail to get a seat at Monument Cafe and visit Burger University for the second time instead. Attached photo bears no relation to actual trip. It’s just a filler.
