Back on February 9,2012 while fishing the crystal clear waters of the Comal River with my buddy Mike aka USMC-GY I caught a very old Redbreast.The Fish put up a nice fight on my ultralight tackle and even pulled a little drag. Once I saw the fish in the crystal clear water I knew I had a record. The length of the fish was 11.80" and is still the current Catch&Release Record Redbreast for the Comal River. When I released the fish me and Mike watched it swim away very slowly only to have a about a five pound bass swim right up behind it. I guess the bass felt sorry for it and let the fish swim away. The second fish is more resent. It was an old Bull Rio that was caught on the West Nueces River August 21,2017. The fish was 11.20" long. It also put up a good fight on the ultralight and it is the current Catch&Release Record for the West Nueces River. Just like the Redbreast the Rio slowly swam away knowing that was the last fight. Two GREAT fish that made the records book. It just don't get any better!
