Thanksgiving makes for a slow work week, so I was able to call it a day late this morning. After running a few errands I hit Cypress Bend Park in New Braunfels around 11:00 am, and caught this guy on my first cast:

He was definitely a harbinger of things to come. Within the next hour I caught a few more:



I got tired of throwing the black Roostertail and tried a chartreuse Roostertail and a black and gold Rapala stick bait, but didn't get a look or a nibble from anything. Then I switched to a #1 Mepps and caught this guy before heading back to the house:

It was a solid two hours of fishing, and it got my mind right. This is probably going to be my last chance to get a line wet until next week, at which time I fully expect to have a severe case of "trout fever"! Hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving.

Great day of fishing. Great pictures and report. thumb

FYI, those are actually redbreast. Longear actually have a shorter ear with white on the edges. I can never figure out why they named them this way.

I would call the second fish a Hybrid. All the others are Redbreast. Just my two cents. 2cents

Banker and J-Moe, I bow to ya'll's knowledge! J-Moe, I can't figure it either. Banker, we'll met up on a river one of these days!
