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 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
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
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.

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
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
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!
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
