A recent post mentioned not seeing many Rio Pictures lately, so Banker (Chuck) and I decided to check it out, to see if they have started biting yet. Well, let me tell you what a real fishing buddy does to help me get out of my record slump for 2020. Off we go through the thick brush where it was obvious no one has traveled since we ventured forth last year. Chuck armed with a machete cleared out a space where only one of us could fish at a time. While he set back smoking his cigar, he passed the honour to me. After a couple of dozen casts with a dink Green Sunfish or Rio on every cast, he advised me to try and plop my bait across the creek, under a low hanging tree. With reservations, I managed to get it in the right place without hanging up. My personal best Rio bit my bait of champions and WOW. 10.25 inches with a certified weight of 1.01 lb. water body, and catch and release pending record. Fishing with someone like Chuck, just don't get any better than that.

Nothing beats smoking a good cigar in a nice shaded area of a creek out in the middle of "No Man's Land", while watching your good buddy reel in a Record Rio! bow_down



HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on yet another record fish! Congratulations on the Records and your new PB Rio! rockon

Congrats on the record. That's a beautiful fish, looks like it came from an Aquarium of National Geographic Special.

I had to repay you some way for the many of records you have given me through the information and scouting trips you did and telling me right where those record fish could be found! hooked


Side Note: That's what fishing is about. Angler helping another angler! cheers Now if only I could get back my Redear Record that you took away from me last year! whip
