Fished with Doc yesterday & had quite an adventure. First, we missed the turn off to the lake because of engaging conversation, but still managed to get to the lake around 7 am. Water level getting closer to normal and around 88 degrees. Toward the end of the day when we were farthest away from the ramp, we had motor issues. Thanks to a strong south wind & just enough trolling motor juice, we made it back to the ramp in about an hour. Turns out we were "out of gas" even though the gauge said just over a quarter full. Nuff a that...we had a good fishing day with 2 catfish...2 bass...2 Tilapis...2 Rios...and a ton of sunfish. I got one that weighed 1.21 lbs, and Doc got one just under a pound, which were the highlights of the day. (The 1.21 lb fish was caught on a Gulp Alive minnow)[Linked Image]

Chuck/Leo....Those were the 1st 2 Rios of the year & we were actually targeting them. They always seem to be in the exact same spot year after year.
Curtis...This may be the only time I would be happy about a strong wind & understand the kayaker perspective for sure.
Senko...Thanks for the reply & yes they did. I was sure I had a good size bass on the big one until we saw it.

Yes Sir Vogey. Glad that you guys were able to make it back to the ramp. I have been in your situation before on the Guadalupe. Me and my friends had to use a trolling motor for about a mile to get back to the ramp. It was also getting close to dark time. Oh yea we ran out of gas. hammer

Steve: I have not caught many Rios yet this year. The places where they were before the big freeze they are gone. The good news is I have seen plenty further southwest on places I fish. They were all guarding nest and had no intentions on eating a nice night crawler. Hopefully they are fixing to school up and start their feeding patterns. Hope to be catching a lot more this summer and fall. thumb

Chuck...I caught both Rios on Gulp Alive minnows. Doc was using worms & maggots & caught none. I would have thought the worms would do way better on the Rios, but I guess their patterns are similar to the bluegill.

Thanks Tom for the reply...

That is a surprise Steve. I would figure the worms would have caught more. Maybe the Rios are feeding on the minnows since that is a natural food for them. Anyway good seeing some Rios being posted. thumb
