Thanks "Turf Dawg" and Chris for the replies.
"Turf Dwag": Finding the Big Redear has been a challenge so far this year! Usually during the winter we nail em. This past winter I only caught two that were over ten inches. Last fall we nailed em. Caught well over 100 that were over 10". Go figure.
Chris: Found eggs in all but one!
I think the spawn is starting. Gills we were catching last week and today were all urinating after being caught.
