I went to the creek on Saturday afternoon for the first time this year but not to my own property. I found a bridge crossing close to my house (20 minutes) that I wanted to check out so I loaded the wife and kids to finally check it out. We fished one side of the bridge to not avail so we went to the other and on the first cast my bobber hit the water and never came back up. The drag started screaming and I thought it was a 2-3lb bass but it was a giant bull rio. It was between 10-12 inches long and from top to bottom I couldn't get my hand to grasp it and it was fat. I removed the hook and went to take a picture of it when it flopped out of my hands and back into the water. More rios were caught and a few long ears using floats and worms but the water in most spots was only 1-2 foot deep with small pockets not much deeper where the fish were hiding. Not the most fish I had ever caught but is was a great outing.
