Been fishing a lot in the Great Southwest especially on the Nueces River! With the good rains that have fallen over the past two years the water bodies are in pretty good shape with very nice currents and active fish. Was able to put two new records on the books for the Nueces River. A Redbreast and Redear are the first in their category for the Nueces. The certificate arrived the other day for the Redbreast which was caught on August 9,2016. The fish was 9" in length with a certified weight of .57 Lbs. The fish was caught by a grass bed in 5 feet of water using a Gulp Alive Night Crawler. The Redear was caught on August 23,2016. The fish was 9" in length and weighed .55 Lbs. The fish was hanging by a shallow weed bed in about 3 feet of water. The fish was caught on live worms.The Redbreast was released but the Redear was not. It had swallowed the hook. Paper work was just mailed into The Texas Parks&Wildlife for the certification for the Redear. Every water body I am fishing in the Southwest,Hill Country,South Central area,and inner city areas are in great shape. This latest rain fall really has the fish turned on. Catching some super fish in the Great Southwest. It just don't get any better!
