Just as Leo aka Gar 1970 reported earlier. The Redear are active and spawning. I just had to make a quick road trip to one of my Redear fishing spots and it "PAID OFF" ! Caught plenty of nice, fat, Redear. The biggest measured 10.15" in length and weighed 1.03 lbs. The fish was healthy and fat. All fish were released to spawn again including the Record Redear. Submitted record application to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Dept. for the Redear weight and catch & release, water body records. Fish were caught on the bait of champions "Worms"! Fish were in 3 to 5 feet of water. I also caught six bass with the biggest bass being about 3 pounds. A great Redear Day! It just don't get any better ! fish

Thanks Steve for the reply. Yes the bass have spawned and they are very active. Been catching about five a trip with most going in the 2 to 3 pound range. I caught one last week that was in the five pound range. thumb

Very nice fish. Helpful to newbies you include the depth caught in your fish reports.

Thanks 1956Zebco for the reply. Yes Sir I try to be as helpful as possible. I target the Bluegill/Sunfish and love studying their patterns and habits. They are a blast to catch on ultralight tackle. thumb



Side Note: I love the simple style of fishing. cheers

Looks like a great day Chuck! Beautiful red ears! Congrats on your new red ear record cheers

Side note: those bass are so much fun even though they are not the targeted species hooked

Congratulations on the records. You have fished a lot to catch a fish like that. Keep the pictures coming. thumb

Thanks Leo and Barry for the replies! cheers Leo: Bass are a bonus fish. I would prefer a nice big Bluegill/Sunfish ! Barry: You are 100 percent. You catch a lot of fish before catching a record fish! cheers

Very good post and excellent fish!! I guess conditions lined up just right for those readers to spawn on this full moon. It's a bit early I would think, but its been a weird year to be sure. Gotta love those shellcrackers! They're like swimming camouflage patterns! Excellent work, Chuck!


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

Really curious, using a hook sized for Redear, how do you land a 3 pound bass? When I fish for bream, I'm using a light wire 6 or maybe 4.

Great fish!!! I went out to one of the creeks I catch a few redear this week. It was almost all dried up. We've been needing a 5 inch rain around here for a while.

Super fun fish to catch on ultralight gear, plus the occasional black bass! thumb
