Fishing continues to be GREAT on just about every water body I have been fishing. Creeks and Rivers have been GREAT all year! Been catching BIG Bluegill,Redear,Warmouth,Redbreast,Rios,Greens,Hybrids,Channel Cats,and some nice Large Mouth Bass. The dog days of summertime are here and the early morning bite seems to be the best. The bite usually last from sunup till 11am. After 11am no matter where I am fishing the bite seems to come to an end. Fish are hanging in grass beds and also at the edges of grass beds. Brush piles and overhanging tree limbs are also holding nice fish. Water bodies are in good shape but could really use the RAIN! Ultralight tackle with worms, and Fly Rods with various types of flies are the methods used. Fish have been caught in 2 to 6 feet of water during the early morning hours. Some fish have been kept for the dinner table and others were released to fight again. Fishing the early morning bite during the Dog Days of summer. It just don't get any better! fish

Thanks Vogey for the reply! cheers My buddy Steve is a manager at a big grocery chain and he loves eating fish especially fresh fish! The guy can cook up fish in many different ways. He even smokes em. He also freezes some. He uses vacuum sealed bags. As for the tarter sauce mine his home made! I think Steve's is homemade also! Love those fresh sunfish dinners! food

Flags when you are ever ready to come down to the South Central area of Texas let me know. Would love to meet and fish with you! thumb


Side Note: I may be going to Colorado in early September to visit my Oldest Son! He says he knows several places not far from where he lives that have plenty of trout! hooked

That’s good ice chest full.

I miss eating some of the fish so catch. My wife hate the taste of fish. I keep telling her most fresh fish doesn’t have that fishy taste and smell she hates, but she won’t listen. So now all I get to bring back is pictures.

Thanks Mitt78, Leo,Yesenia,and Dale the Nailer for the replies. cheers Mitt78: Try dipping your fish in regular mustard before frying them. When frying fish I dip them in mustard first and then my fish fry mix. They turn out SUPER! food

Thanks Curtis for the reply. I have fished the early evening bite and the time I have I did pretty good. The morning bite was better for me. thumb As for night fishing under the lights I have not done it yet! eeks

Do you use a store bought fry mix or make your own? If you make it what is your recipe.
Thanks, JB in WTexas
