Good Early Morning Outing

Recommended Posts

Great day of fishing. I took vacation from work and it paid off! Got my largest bass with a soft plastic so far. I have never been confident with plastics but i feel alot more after today. Felt the tap tap reel down and swung for the fences and came up with this chubby girl.

My father in law and i both caught a smallmouth which according to texas parks and wildlife do not exist in the lake we fish. the one my father in law caught is a decent size too!! All in all a great day with 20 plus fish.

Many lakes in Texas have been stocked with smallmouth. Most of them never reproduced or survived though. Occasionally you will catch one on a lake that isn't supposed to have any. Many lakes in the Central Texas region and the North Texas region have smallmouth bass. In central Texas we have Guadalupe bass and smallmouths. Sometimes they breed together and make an interesting fish.

Yeah usually every other sunday we hook up with a Guadalupe or 2 and then sometimes we get what you called an interesting fish. I know Whitney has some good smallmouth but never thought Grapevine would. Never caught one before but he sure felt bigger than what he was. When i got him near the boat he went straight down and put up a decent fight.
