Quantcast

The April edition of TF&G features a story I wrote called Never Grin at a Grinnel.

I love catching big, tough grinnel and right now is a great time to catch them in East Texas.

As water levels are high in many of the creek system, many grinnel have already spawned and are defending their brood. If you see a bunch of small fish in the shallows with a larger behind it in backwaters and sloughs this time of year it is often grinnel.

Throw a Texas-rigged worm or swim a frog across the surface and get ready to get slammed.

I realize the grinnel spawn is not exactly the most sought after phenomenon in fishing but it is a good way to get bit.

Hard!
