Only in the GREAT STATE of TEXAS could you catch in the same day Rainbow Trout, Large Mouth Bass, Bluegill, Redbreast, Rios, and Hybrid Sunfish. Myself and good friend Steve fished both a South Central Texas Creek and a Hill Country River and the winter bite was FANTASTIC! During the morning we fished the river and caught some Rainbow Trout. The trout were staged by currents. Berkely Power Trout Bait,Yellow in color was the bait used. We then headed to the creek and the caught over 75 fish. Redbreast in the 9 to 10 inch range, Large Mouth Bass in the one to two pound range, Hybrid Sunfish in the 9 to 10 inch range, Bluegill in the 7 to 9 inch range, and some Rios in the 9 inch range. Fish were caught using the "Bait of Champions" Worms. Fish were in 6 to 8 feet of water holding by overhanging tree limbs. We released a bunch and Steve kept some for the frying pan. Fishing a winter day in Texas with a good friend. It just don't get any better! fish

Nice haul. Good job Chuck and Steve. woot I have noticed so far during this mild winter that the sunnies really are turning on in the creeks especially a couple of days before a front
and a couple of days after a front. The are really active during the warm spells. I am also getting good numbers in both the creeks and river! Catching plenty of Redbreast,Bluegill,and Crappie. woot




Side Note: You guys fishing any rivers? noidea

Excellent haul Chuck! I tried the Placid part of the Guad last week and got nada. Which was crazy since I had tried the Dunlap part earlier that week and did pretty good twice. I need to get over to the Hill Country and get while the getting is good.


Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless His Holy Name!

Thanks Curtis, Torry, and Yesenia for the replies. cheers Torry: Placid can be a difficult place to fish especially this time of year. Usually summer and fall are good months to fish there. Sunnies love those docks. hooked Curtis: Fishing some rivers but mainly for trout. Going to take advantage of this warm winter creek bite! thumb
