Nice day today. The water was CRYSTAL clear. Easy to see the fish, could see a pair of bass spawning couple feet from shore.
Look how clear the water was:

I ended up catching a lmb a bit over 17 inches, one of my best here at Lake Arlington. Just as I did, A russian couple, fishing further down from me, came running up.
"Ohhh I can have? I can have? Thank you! Thank you!". They wanted the fish and the man went to grab a plastic bag. He really thought I was going to hand it to him and let him throw it into a Jewel plastic bag.
I kindly informed him, "CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY HERE" and let it go. Can't imagine such a beautiful fish suffering such a fate.
The staff here doesn't really care, would be nice if they checked licenses occasionally or cracked down on the people obviously keeping fish. Meh.

The guy really flipped out when I let it go.

It's a good thing most of these bucketheads don't really know how to fish too well.
He had 5 lines in the water for the few hours I was there. They caught nothing.
