A Shiny Magikarp in the Sabine River?

I've been trying to add a lot of fish observations in the NE TX area, in as many places as I can. Today I went to Old Sabine Bottom WMA and fished the river. That section of the river was full of turtles, who ate all my worms. However, I managed to catch three small fish.

I left the park for another boat ramp near Hawkins. I passed it on the way to park and wanted to take a look before going home. This section of the Sabine was at the bottom of a sandstone ravine. I walked along the rocky shore and took some mussel observations pictures and then I saw it---a big albino carp. Since I didn't have any more bait, I couldn't try to catch it for a photo. I'll go back tomorrow with lots more worms and explore that section of the Sabine.

Haha! Magikarp. :)

What is Old Sabine Bottom WMA like? I've not been there but I'd really like to go...

Old Sabine Bottom is great if you like exploring wetland ecosystems. Bring your rubber boots because the trails are usually covered in water, except during long dry spells like the one we're in now. It's greatly underused by the public; the couple of times I've went, I was the only person there besides the park rangers, who said visitors are rare.
