In a very Texas moment broadcast on live television, a Houston man caught a 4-pound bass while waiting on the floodwaters to recede, and he did it all while eating Whataburger.
As ABC13 News cameras rolled on Thursday, the man caught the fish while he was stranded in the flood water created by tropical storm Imelda. Unfortunately, footage of the you-gotta-see-this moment has not been released (yet), but one viewer did manage to get a couple screenshots of the broadcast that'll we'll cherish forever.
"This dude caught a 4 pound bass on the feeder road near I-45 and Cross Timbers in front of Whataburger while he was stranded waiting for the flood waters to recede," Andrew Mattheis captioned the photos in a Facebook post. "If this isn't Texas, and especially Houston, I don't know what is."
In the photos, the man can be seen with a large bass in one hand and a Whataburger hamburger in the other. The post was liked 21,000 times and shared more than 46,000 times in 18 hours.
I guess it could be more Texas if he'd arrested a looter using his concealed carry piece at the same time.
