Re: Striped Bass -Guadalupe River Below Canyon Lake Dam

ShawnM, Thanks for trying to help me.
No disrespect intended, to you or anyone.
My writing is clearly labeled with PM: and should not be confused with your original message.
If it was a dumb question/comment, I apologize.
Don't know what else I can do to make it right.

Good Day!

Re: Striped Bass -Guadalupe River Below Canyon Lake Dam

Is cut bait allowed in the restricted artificial bait only zones? Sorry if it posted elsewhere that this approach is GRTU and GW approved, for these areas. PM Yes as long you are fishing for other than trout and if catch a trout in the trophy zone on cut bait its illegal to keep it and must release...

Re: Tainted water below dam?

Has there been a fish kill related to this report? There might be stagnant separated pools, but the river should be flowing slowly at 50 cubic feet? Thanks for the link JWH.

Re: We need Rain !

Flow rate of the upper Guad river has barely moved after the rains, hope it was enough to make a difference.

Re: White Bass

I had a good run using my pontoon last Saturday April 8th on shallow running lures, at Rebecca bridge area. Worked down to big rapids and back, 21 fish in 2 hours- all but 5 were 14"+ whites. Talked to a bank fisherman who said he did well in April of last year using lures, from his kayak. Flows may...

Re: White Bass

No public wading access at Rebecca creek since the drought ended years back -when it was possible to walk in the ankle deep creek water. Floating with a tube would be least troublesome and least expensive way to get to the fish without trespass, followed by a kayak. The water is fast after the last ...

Re: Asking for Advice

When can be at least as important as where. The area on the lake side the dam and Tom Creek can be good in the Fall as well as boat ramp #11 on the upper Guad. (no trout), if you have access to a boat, kayak, tube. White bass run at Rebecca Creek rapids around December to March. Crappie reputed to b...

Re: Bass and cats on the Llano

Thanks for the nice vids. I like your sun protection gloves and sleeves, similar to what I use. Sometimes I will reverse the left and right gloves so that the dark latex palms cover the top part of the hands which take a lot of beating from a hot overhead sun. The mesh backs on my home made versions...

Guad ramp #11 area action action increases

Caught a few, but very large whites, crappie, striper myself a few days before this December cold front. Another chap at the ramp claimed smallmouth, guads and blacks. You will need a small craft to float the area around #11 to work the area, since there is very limited bank access.

Very interesting, thanks guys!

I did some more surfing and the peacock species in PR look to have very bright color patterns:

Peacock bass?

I think these cichlids were planted in Texas (Bastrop?) awhile back, and Florida may still have some. I have a trip to PR coming, and am trying to free up some time to go after them for sport. I have no experience with these, and would appreciate experience/hints from anyone in this regard. Thanks, ...
