Jigging; it's faster than chasing a minner in a bucket!

When we would catch some really big ones in Spring, we would grill them on the half shell like redfish. It takes a pretty big Rio to do it but back then we would keep some of the bigger ones in that season just for that purpose. Rios have a different taste than most anything we catch down here for whatever reason.


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

Nice post and some super Rios. You have had a GREAT Rio year. Good job Chuck.



Side Note: When will most of the Rios go into hiding for the winter?
