I fished Comanche solo today starting with trolling grubs for a couple hours for nothing. Then I switched to Speedy Shiners. I ended up catching four trout up to 18 in, and a couple of smaller Bass. I spent the last 2 hours trying to get the fifth trout for a limit, but nothing would bite.
I released all of the fish. I already have plenty of fish in the freezer. It was a little chilly this morning and ended up being a very nice day out of water.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171210/4e97f482621803145f95687b3b868830.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171210/a45936b7bf07db89b387ce2a557bda10.jpg

Wow! Nice report, nice fish, nice day. Speedy shiners are my go to trout lure. Ever since I learned about speedy shiners from Robbie they have been killer lures.

Nice trout . How deep ?The trout all came using just a 1/4 oz keel weight running maybe 8 to 12 feet down. All of the trout came on the same lure and rod... gold and red Speedy Shiner.
I tried to use the downriggers at all different depths, but all I could catch on the downriggers was bass at about 30 feet in 60-70 feet of water. The bass came on Speedy Shiners too, but purple and white color.

Sent from my SM-G892A using TapatalkHa, I wish I had a triple, but then DFW might have something to say about how I managed to do that fishing solo.
They were all caught individually. Those three were fish that I had put in the live well with intention of keeping, but then changed my mind, so I had to scoop them up out of the live well to release them.

Check the regulations!!!!
You can not keep trout live in the fish well, unlike bass.

Could you please attach the link to this info... I searched and searched but could not find anything that says you can not keep fish alive in a live well while "on the water"..and nothing that says you have to kill once landed..

I did find how ever that you "can not" TRANSPORT any fish alive away for the lake............and I do believe you can't transport bass alive either, tournaments that need to transport to weigh site have to get special permit to do so..

This is what I found in the regs..on page 10...(section 4.00 though 4.30 deal with live bait and movement of them)

1.63. Movement of Live Fish. Except as provided in sections 4.00 through 4.30 and 230, live fin fish may not be transported alive from the water where taken.

I think your ok with live well fish Kerpow......... just make sure they are dead before heading down the road......

Thanks for the clarification guys That's just one of the reasons I use this site. The regulations are not always clear, and the forum members have a wealth of information.
Thanks again and good fishing!

Interesting.... thank you... brings the question as to why they have it listed under bait regulations...why not other fish listed ? I guess this would be a good question for Carrie Wilson..

I was told that some striped bass fisherman in some of the lakes would go out and catch some planter bows. They then transported them alive and used them for striped bass bait.

It sounds legit to me, but then what do I know.

Also due to the delicate nature of trout (compared to bass) they don't allow culling of trout like you can do for bass. They don't survive in a live well long even if you saw it swim away it will die later.
