Been having to fit my fishing time in with some personal business dealings this past month but the times I have made it out on the water have paid off. The bite is "FANTASTIC"! Catching good numbers on good quality Bluegill,Rios,Bass,Redbreast,Tilapia,Longear,and Redear. Small hill country rivers are on fire. Water conditions are great with plenty of good current and crystal clear water. Fish are feeding in water 2 to 4 feet deep and are holding by grass beds and brush piles. The Rios are hugging close to the banks usually by brush piles. The bite should really pick up the rest of this month and into November. Once the first major cold front blows through the Rios will start getting hard to find. The sunfish will also start to head to some deeper water. Now is the time to catch some really super fish. Catching some fall time sunnies. It just don't get any better! fish

Well done Chuck thumb Looks like you are fishing in the middle of a kelp patty. Are you catching them in "grass holes" or around the edges?

Do you come across many Drum in these creeks? I happened on to the Frio Record page last night, and saw you had that record!

Thanks Leo and Andrew for the replies. Leo: I was in Brackettville this past week on business with my rental properties. I was able to fish at a ranch one last time this year. Ranch will be closed to visitor's until after deer season. The W. Prong is looking mighty good and water is coming out of the springs. thumb Andrew: I caught the drum in Three Rivers while fishing for White Bass on the Frio. hooked I have caught a few drum this year all off of lakes. hmmm The sunfish,bass,and tilapia are all hanging by the edges of weed and grass beds. You can actually see them going after your bait. thumb

Nice fish as always Chuck. Fall has been a good one. Fish are really turning on with these latest fronts. Any predictions on the winter sunfish bite?

Thanks Curtis for the reply. cheers If we have a mild winter the sunfish will be a little more active especially in water 15 to 20 feet deep. If we have a cold winter the bite will be extremely slow. Brush piles in 15 to 25 feet of water will be the best places to find em. hide2

Nice fish Chuck. Have these latest fronts started the sunfish in their winter patterns? Has the bite slowed down? Again nice post and fish.

Thanks Gitter for the reply. cheers These latest fronts have gotten the fish to start heading for deeper water. We have two more fronts coming in the week. The Sunfish bite is slowing down but is still pretty good. thumb



Side Note: We can sure use some RAIN! banana (Rain dance).

Thanks Chuck. Looks like a stronger front is heading here this week around Tuesday. Also getting a light shower now. Hopefully we get more rain and those big Redear will start biting.
