Depends on where you want to go. I went out yesterday to a small lake on Josey Ln, just north of the George Bush. It's about a mile maybe on your right. It's not very big, but there are some nice gills there. I caught about 20 and kept 14 about 6" long, using just worms. Move around and cast about 40 feet out maybe 3, 3 1/2 feet deep with a bobber, and stay ready. They were hitting fast yesterday. Fried them up this evening.
Not to create offense, but are you not worried about eating from neighborhood ponds?
Am I just overly paranoid?
I grew up over by that pond and used to pull bluegill up with crickets all the time. My dad would never let me eat them.
Maybe he just didn't want to have to clean them?
