Fall Creek Fishing has been on "FIRE"! Been taking advantage of the mild temperatures and the long warming periods between cold fronts. Been catching plenty of TROPHY size Redbreast including a RECORD Redbreast! Also catching a few TROPHY size Rios including a Catch&Release Rio Record. The Redbreast was 10.15" in length with a weight of .98 Lbs. Both C&R and weight records were submitted to the Texas Parks&Wildlife. The Record Rio was 10.20" in length. Caught well over 15 Redbreast that were over 10" during a one week period. Well over 50 Redbreast in the 9" range. Rounding out the catches were plenty of Bluegill in the 8 to 9 inch range, and several nice bass in the 2 to 4 pound range. Had one HUGE bass (over 5 pounds) tossed a hook back at me after about a one minute fight. Fish were caught in 5 to 8 feet of water using the "Bait of Champions" worms. Great late fall creek fishing in Texas! It just don't get any better! fish

That's outstanding, nice catch. Congrats on the records.
You sure set the bar high for us common folk with those fish.
