Backyard fishing - 04/21/21 05:19 PM

It's been about 3 months since we fished the backyard. So yesterday we finished spraying mesquite early and decided to see who's hungry. Of course the bass were the first to bite [Linked Image]

Then after all the splashing from the bass a school of redear shows up and they are loving our jigs [Linked Image]

This redear was super thick! She was either full of eggs or maybe just obese

We had a great hour of fishing the backyard banana

Side note: we have not fished the Rio hole since before chuck fished it last time he was at the ranch.
We're saving them for you Chuck

As the late and great Gomer Pyle would say. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME! You have the BEST FISHING in Texas right out your back yard. Why go anywhere else! hooked As I have always said. You and Yesenia are living in God's Country! cheers

Myself and Rick aka Catyakker have been fishing a new spot for a couple of months, and we are catching good numbers of Green Hybrids that look just like the one above ! The fish are in the 7 to 9 inch range. All of them are fat and healthy. We have also caught plenty of bass in the 2 to 4 pound range as well. I think I have caught more Hybrid Sunfish so far this year than all of last year. hmmm
