Not from lake Houston, but I think it's my personal best length and weight combined, but I grabbed one at conroe that was shorter, but felt like a bag of flour.
I mean, it's no 12lb sharelunker from lake Fork, but it works for me.
Cool story with this fish. In a culvert no wider than a F-250 and just as long, maybe 1.5 foot deep.
Red plastic worm on a worm hook...the fish hit it, bent the rod, and ran my line along the length of exposed concrete lining the sides of the drainage pipe......I pull up a wrinkled line without and hook or lure.
I felt bad thinking of the poor fish digging it's nose into the mud trying to remove that hook. So, I came back the next day to try and remove the hook from the well-hooked fish....
When I found the fish again , I had my camera rolling.
And no hook in its mouth.
I've caught this same fiah now, about four times.
Don't overlook your local culverts.
