Fayette is on FIRE! Myself,Mike "USMC-GY",and Fred "Rionator" fished Fayette Co.Reservoir today and the bite was "ON FIRE"! We fished from 7am till 1pm and caught well over 100 very big Sunnies. Bluegill and Redear were the most caught. We also caught a bunch of Rios with one going over 9" which will be submitted for the Rio Grande Cichlid Catch&Release Record for Fayette.(Yes it was mine). All fish were caught using worms with drop shot,bottom,and float methods being used. We fished five locations and all produced BIG FISH! Reed beds,rock ledges,sunken timber,and drop offs were areas where they were stacked.It was non stop action for most of the day. The water was stained with good current. We kept 20 fish for the frying pan and the rest were released. After a super day on the water we had a FANTASTIC LUNCH at the Oak Ridge Smoke House in beautiful downtown Schulenburg. Fishing with good buddies and catching a bunch of nice fish. It just don't get any better. fish

Awesome clap

I walked outside this morning and it was around 60 degrees. I knew it was going to be a great morning of fishing. Farmers Almanac said so too.

I can't believe I live an hour away from Fayette and have never fished it for sunfish hammer

Oh man, it doesn't get any better than that. I've fished it once and it was fantastic, probably the best lake I've ever fished for sunnies. This makes me want to go back, but the drive is out of my range. Congrats.

Actually, an hour drive down a good four lane highway to get to a good fishing spot is not at all unreasonable, about a one cup of coffee trip. It takes me that long to get down to New Braunfels to fish with Chuck & Mike, and I have driven further. With a partner to chat with, the trip is even shorter. I'm going to put Fayette on my list. Get ready Chuck & Mike.. LOL
