Myself,Mike(USMC-GY) and Fred (Rionator) fished the Nueces River. We fished from 7am till 1 pm and boated around 75 fish. Most fish were fat females in the 12 to 14 inch range. We had several just under 15 inches.Fish were located at the ends of currents in 2 to 4 feet of water.Chartreuse Roadrunners with jigs Chartreuse/black attached were the early morning bait of choice. Chartreuse Roadrunners with jigs,white in color with a Chartreuse tail was the bait of choice from 11am till we finished. Last two hours was non stop action. Most of the fish were released to fight again.We also kept a bunch for dinner. After a day on the river we stopped at the EL Tapatio Mexican Grill in Three Rivers for a GREAT lunch. Fishing the Nueces River with friends. It just don't get any better. fish

Great pics ! Water color looks great. This warm spell should get them piled up even more. When you clean them, check the egg sacks; if the eggs start getting translucent they are ready to be fertilized. wink Thanks for the report ! Rio

Awesome report. Always enjoy reading your posts. I haven't fished for 8 weeks now. I don't do too well in the cold. Looking forward to this Friday and scout the creeks.

Put in at the Live Oak airport. I guess its about 7 miles or so from Three Rivers south off of 281. There will be signs signaling the airport. Hey guys and gals how long will the white bass be up in the river. Seems like its still very early. I havn't seen any redbuds yet lol. However looks like everyone is catching these fantastic fish. Does anyone go as far as the "Rapids" or can you intercept them at the 1st real right angle bend on the river?

Thanks ace02 and Scott 79602 for the replies. cheers The Air Port ramps and the 59 bridge ramp are the ramps I use. coolio As for the rapids. hmmm It was to shallow for us to get to em. We fished just right before them. hooked Seems the only ones making it past the rapids to the sand bars were john boats and kayaks. thumb

Side Note: Friends of mine reported limits the other day and they put in at the 59 bridge. They stated they did not have to go that far to find plenty of fish. Spawn is on! thumb

Thanks for the reply. cheers Did not have the time to fish for the Crappie. We were to busy catching Whites. Matt told us some spots to look for and a few places to hit but we just did not have the time. Maybe next trip. thumb

Side Note: Choke Canyon is picking up! coolio

Nice ones Chuck and good fishing guys. Fished the Nueces Friday and launched at the 59 bridge. Boat traffic started picking up by late morning. Me and Jeff ended up taking 30 nice ones for the frying pan. We boated about 50 fish from 7am till about 1pm. Roadrunners with light colored jig attachments worked the whole trip. We started finding good fish about a mile from the ramp. You going back anytime soon?



Side Note: We also ate at the El Tapatio. Thanks for the great tip. The food was very good.
