We begin Season Two and the Quest for Elite with a trip to the Guadalupe. What starts out as a low-hanging-fruit attempt at a Big Fish Award, turns into a struggle for survival in 700CFS flows that make every move a struggle, and every presentation a dicey prospect. At lunch afterward at the amazing Granny
Fishing Team wraps up what must be the greatest season of fishing-based podcasting with not the greatest of fishing trips. However there’s donuts, there’s the requisite physical challenge, and Matthew sets up the goal of Season Two. There may or may not be a murder cliff-hanger. All set against the scenic backdrop of Granger Lake
Fishing Team takes a weekend on the coast, where they meet a dock cat and soak some bait. Will Jamey and Matthew catch the redfish of their dreams? Will they survive their Texas neighbors? Subscribe to the podcast today for the answers to all of these questions!
Getting up hatefully early and riding low after the pretty abysmal showing in the last episode, Fishing Team’s Jamey and Matthew return to the exact same spot they were last time and do pretty well actually.

San Antonio is home to tacos, a big tower or something, metal, and Lake Calaveras, a freshwater habitat for the normally ocean-dwelling red drum. Some men call them redfish, some call them a tantalizing treasure of the waves. Our heroes, Jamey and Matthew, venture south of the border (of Bexar County) and tangle with the
Jamey gets his groove back as Fishing Team takes a trip to a secret gar fishing hole code-named “James Garville.” Several spotted Gar make it into the boat, as well as monstrous soft-shell turtles. Jamey, ever the gentleman, barely rubs Matthew’s face in his fishing prowess.
Fishing Team’s first foray onto Lake Fayette has some success, but then the gale force wind hits. Will Jamey and Matthew survive long enough to edit and post this episode of the podcast? Also featured, La Grange’s Backporch BBQ and sandwiches piled high with meat.
In the depths of the outlet works of Lake Somerville dam, Fishing Team reaches the human limit of heat tolerance. Also on the menu, buffalo and channel catfish, ice cream from Brenham’s hometown favorite, and hamburgers the size of a baby’s head from the Dairy Bar.
