Myself and Mike "USMC_GY" fished the Salado Creek on our way home from a South Texas scouting adventure the other day. We fished from 2pm till 4pm and the bite was good. Caught a bunch of nice Redbreast in the 7 and 8 inch range. Also some nice Bluegill in the 7 and 8 inch range were caught. Rounding out the catch were a few small bass. The creek where we were at is in very good shape. The bite is only going to get better. Fish were caught on worms and small jigs. Fish were in 2 to 5 feet of water. Float and bottom techniques were used and all fish were released to fight again.Prior to fishing the Salado we had a GREAT LUNCH at Tom's Burgers located at IH 37 and Dunlop Road in San Antonio. Early season creek fishing. It just don't get any better! fish

Nice going Chuck & Mike!

Redbreast are a really cool fish, love how they look.

I have only caught a few and never one in Dallas, but all were on topwater with a fly. They were in pure attack mode and boiled as soon as the fly hit the water. Awesome

What kind of small jigs did you use if you don't mind me asking.
I generally break out my fly rod to target gills and I've managed a few on small cranks but rarely throw jigs.

Great job guys!!! I've never fished for them with small jigs. I bet that's fun. Add another fishing hole to my list of places you have to take me, LOL!!

I fly fished today. Only caught one hybrid sunfish. But I caught 9 bass. The small bass started biting a few days ago and they kept biting right through the cold front. That's a great sign and I expect the sunfish will be following suit within a week or so.

Thanks Jamie and CK for the replies! cheers Jamie: The Sunfish bite will be getting better each day. Looks like a GREAT YEAR is shaping up! All of my fishing spots are looking good. coolio CK: The scouting trip was good in that we found some good spots for some shallow Crappie Fishing during their spawn. hmmm It was to cold that day for the fish to be in shallow water! eeks To answer your question we did not catch a fish. bang The Salado Creek came through for us! clap clap

Did you know that Redbreast arent restricted to the Hill Country? I used to think they were I had never caught one, only knew of them, until I caught some last year from some creeks out East. What city do you live in?

The only other place I have caught them was in a creek/river near Glen Rose TX. May have been the tail out of Wheeler Branch

I have caught them in Montgomery County and San Jacinto County so far. I freaked out the first time I caught one since I had only heard of them and saw pictures online lol. I caught a 9 and a half incher too, blew my mind. I just read about Wheeler Branch this week. Never knew of it. I plan on trying to fish that lake to catch Walley because TPWD stocks it with them every year and Ive never caught any since there are such few places to catch them in Texas.
