Myself and fishing buddy Steve made it out to one of our "Rio Holes". The bite was AWESOME! We fished from 7am till 1pm and caught over 50 Rios. We also caught some Bluegill. Worms was the bait used. Fish were caught in 2 to 4 feet water holding by grass beds. Most of the fish were released but some were kept for Steve's dinner table. All of the Rios were in the 9 to 10 inch range with the biggest measuring 10.50". Fish were fat,healthy, and full of fight. Catching a bunch of hungry Rios. It just don't get any better. fish

Nice haul gentlemen!
In the heat of the summer it seems like the pan fish are more cooperative. I like the small water environment too.

If I could capture one image of Chuck, that would be it. Game face on, holding a Rio and covered in worm dirt roflmao

Great job of continuing to find and catch them Rios sir. Too bad the pictures give away your location, that Jamie guy can now find them too grin

Thanks for sharing, as always
