Had to pass through Blanco for work today and decided to stop and get a line wet on the way back home. I was a little bit late for supper but it was well worth it. They were picky eaters at first, but once I found the right lure/color combination it was on. Started out with:

Yellow Panther Martin Caught 1 dink bluegill, had several follows. Switched to a

Black Roostertail with a Silver Blade Caught 1 dink bluegill and 1 decent redbreast before switching to a

Dark Green Roostertail Gold Blade Zilch, nada, nothing, so I switched to a

Chartreuse Roostertail Gold Blade Caught the following, in order:

It's amazing to me that each fish was smaller than the previous one caught. Not pictured are the handful of bass I caught, each one smaller than the previous.

Also noted, this was the first time I caught a Rio with a spinning lure. Every Rio I caught before today was on the fly rod.

Man, you're not kidding! I actually stopped on the way to Fredericksburg and it was about 5 minutes after 1! Fished for 10 short minutes and headed out to my appointment. When I got back to the Blanco it was about 3:30, and I fished until 5. How did you and Rick do today?

We did not do all that well on the Perdernales. We caught a few small Rios,some small Channel Cats and some small Bluegill. I did manage a nice Guadalupe Bass,13" ,fat,and full of fight. thumb The Blanco was much better. We caught several nice Rios ,a few nice Bluegill, and some nice Longear. Had a super nice Redbreast get off at the bank. hammer Over all a nice day of fishing. hooked

Thanks Vogey, J-Moe and Osborn for the replies. You're right Vogey, the Rio put up a heck of a fight.


Should have mentioned earlier, all the fish were released to fight another day.
