    Oh heck, so you know the party tubers then. Used to snorkel it long ago and find plenty.

    Another good spot back in the day was Landa Park. Then if you can make it over to it check out the Bandera Bridge by the stock yard auction, and further would be in Pipe Creek a bridge called English Crossing. All good little banks to hit, lots of drunk drops.

    I was one of those tubers a couple times. That water is freaking cold... but the colder the water the more the fingers shrink the more rings to be had.

    Yeah it is pretty cold, all year long. Way back in then there was a water park off that river that used that water from the river in all of its rides. Had these crazy tube rides that where just cement and nothing covering them that dumped right into the river off this massive slide down. It was their longest ride of like 4 hours, and right at the end big sand paper grinding slide that someone was always getting hurt at. That spot was perfect to snorkel where it hit the river, always find some good stuff there.

    Looks like you found a sinker, or 6000. Looks like you have about 120 LBS of lead there.

    I'm at about 5 lbs of lead so far. I have found many sinkers. I'm digging a sinker up about every 5 minutes when I'm hunting.
