Those are impressive fish. You really have the Rios dialed in. I do not think I have ever seen a 12 inch Redear except in pictures. Good job!
The Rios have been kind of hard to find this year.
The late spring flooding really messed up their patterns and nesting.
I usually have a dozen good places to catch em this time of year. I have only a couple where I can pick up some nice ones.
Gonna keep trying and looking. Also your invite is always open. I have some pretty easy places to fish.
Side Note: October and November are usually good times to catch some nice Redear!
