Fishing team wakes up hatefully early to fish for crappie and bass on Lake Walter E. Long. Matthew records a cheeky “Best Thing to Happen This Week” segment for NPR’s It’s Been a Minute with Sam Sanders. Everyone gets covered in spiders.

We said we wouldn’t do it, we said it wouldn’t be a good idea, but we went back to the Undisclosed Location. Episode 16 has Matthew and Jamey back at the UL. Will the secret fishing hole be too scummed over in the heat? Will Matthew and Jamey catch as many fish as they feel

Jamey and Matthew paddle out into Lake Walter E. Long, the biggest lake within the Austin City Limits that no one has ever heard of.

Even though they spend an entire weekend fishing, Jamey and Matthew only manage to put together a 22-minute podcast. Because of technical problems mainly, if we’re honest. Highlights of the epic saltwater fishing trip to Matagoda include a veritable swarm of hardhead catfish and an involuntary education into their venomous barbs. A bonnethead shark came
Fishing team returns to the Undisclosed Location (UL) for what they assume is the last time before the pond gets choked with summer growth.

Fishing team returns to the Undisclosed Location (UL), for a madcap jaunt around our favorite little Austin fishing hole. Using a variety of flies including the cypert minnow (whose name just suddenly came back to me), poppers, foam spiders, and bead-head nymphs, we catch all the green sunfish and bass you can imagine. Unfortunately, our
