I hit the Brazos river for the first time Saturday. A TFF member was with me. The crappie and sand bass fishing has been good. Well, It was good up until the day I went. But ,no one else were catching any either. 8 hours of scanning and jigging produced 4 lost jigs and 1 drum. I didn't see anyone catch any crappie.
But , I got to play with my new Garmin and the scenery was purdy. And my fishing buddy kept me look laughing with his rattle trap mishaps.

And we saw a family of wild pigs swim across the river

we put in here at Hamm Creek Park

https://www.texasoutside.com/campgrounds/hamm-creek-park-in-rio-vista

From the ramp we tried Painted Rock and then went back the other way to some bluffs and then we went to the bridge with all the sunken timber. well, there was timber everywhere
No one caught fish. I didn't see any crappie at all. I caught the one drum.

people said they have been on the bottom but just wont bite in that area. I don't fish that area, but i was there on Sunday and i was asking boaters as they loaded back on the trailer. I was bank fishing the Nolan river where everyone goes and we have been catching whites and crappie. I would only catch the whites with all chrome rooster tail and a slow retrieve. Whites are the easiest to catch but the crappie are not biting aggressively.
While i was there a guy said he caught 20 crappie back a week ago but he was there for hours until finally he started catching. When i was there on Sunday he caught 4. I would try Nolan and watch you electronics if you have them. I know some good spots on PK if you ever go.

Yep, a week ago they were catching them in the area I was at. I have electronics with SI and DI.. When you say PK, or you referring to a river part of it or the main lake. I don't think my bass tracker is big enough to handle the PK main lake

I love the Brazos, I always see deer, pigs or turkeys. The Crappie fishing is hot when they’re on but terrible when they aren’t biting. I’ve been to Painted Rock at times with 15-20 boats and EVERYONE limit out and I’ve been there with 15-20 boats and EVERYONE gets skunked.


Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right

I fish there extensively. There are brush piles everywhere and I can say there's not much on brush piles right now. Crappie are roaming around... I dont know what they'll do, but it'll be interesting to see if where they spawn.

Pretty strong attitude ..... for a first post.

Community holes will always be like that. Get over it.


I'm glad there are wine drinkers in this world ..... it saves more beer for the rest of us.
