Fished a local creek and the Longear were in a playful mood. The creek flow was excellent and the creek was in very good condition. Fished the end of currents and caught a bunch of hungry Longear. Fished from 11am till 3pm and caught over thirty Longear. Several small bass,a few Redbreast,and a few fat Bluegill rounded out the catch. All fish were caught using worms on ultra light tackle. Bottom techniques were used. The water was stained and clear in some spots. If this is any indication of the upcoming bite,April should be very, very good. Early Spring Longear fishing. It just don't get any better! fish

It's good to hear creeks are in good shape, DFW has been saturated the last couple weeks. I know lakes are rising and creeks flowing. Nice to see some Longear being caught already, but may be a few weeks before that happens here.

I think this could be a good summer water wise and El Nino may really be showing up to help us out.

Thanks "Fishing_4_Life",Andrew,and Bob for the replies. Andrew: Yes Sir looks like a good sunfish season awaits. Hopefully we will see a lot of catches this year. Looking forward to it. thumb Bob: Hopefully you will get the chance to wet a line. Nothing beats being in the outdoors with a line in the water. Catching fish is icing on the cake. cheers

It's Longear time in the creeks. Nice fish. Looks like that creek is in very good shape. Can't wait until the Longear really start showing off their colors.





Side Note: Is March through May the best time of the year to catch Longear? Also is this the time of year when they really start showing off their colors?

Now that looks like a great experience. I have never fished for Longear in the creeks before, only in ponds. Thanks for sharing all these scenic locations and stories Chuck!! thumb

I would say Late March thru June is when the colors are at their finest from the Brazos to down south. The best time to catch Longear is normally from Late spring to right before the peak of Summer because that is the time when the current is most consistent and desirable. After that good current will gradually become more difficult to come by most years thruout most of TX

Yes Sir they will really be showing off those bright red/orange colors. coolio Thanks guys for the replies. cheers



Side Note: "Gitter": I have always caught my bigger Longear from March through Mid May. eeks They bite year around but seems to me the bigger ones are caught during those months. Just my two cents. 2cents It will also depend on where you are fishing. hmmm Jamie: The creeks down here are loaded with em. dance2 Mike: Looking forward to seeing some catches. rockon

Looks like that Creek is in great shape. Also love the Longear. The Longear bite should be super good the next few weeks. woot





Side Note: Be careful fishing the creeks. Snakes are on the move and also there are some very slippery creek banks. Stay safe. Chuck: Is that the Cibolo?
