Nice Redear

Nope. That one wasn't one of mine. It seems I am always the one taking pictures of other peoples fish, never the one getting pictures of mine taken. <_<

I bought a digital camera and am resolved to take more pictures of fish that I catch. Even if I ain't in the picture. :D Not that anyone would want a picture of me. :blink:

Actually I have some pics of fish I have caught that I need to get scanned. The digital will make it easier.

I love fishing red ears--hears a couple from Lamar Lake in Lamar, Missouri

we release the biggest ones over 13 inches---looking for that 16 incher!

Nice ones MoCarp. I have never fished Lamar Lake. I have heard there are some good fish in it tho, as your pics prove.

The biggest Redear I have caught was in Table Rock Lake. I didnt measure her but she weighed nearly 2 lbs and was full of roe. She was still in the lake when I left.

WOW

hey guys these are all great redears. When is the best time to fish Lamar Lake for them and what are you using?

Fox:

I have never fished Lamar Lake so I will have to let MOCarp answer that question. As to the best time to catch Redear it is anytime you go fishing. :))

Seriously the spring run is the best time to catch them but, Redear dont mind hot weather so you can catch them on most any summer day. They typically arent very deep either.

My best lures are small jigs regular and tube, micro jigs, Sow Bugs and Scuds or if those dont work then I get out my secrete weapon.....plain old garden worms from a Hills Brothers Coffee Can. :)

Usally start about the 1st moon phases in April/May---just after the bass are --which is early in lamar usally the first moon of March/April

I have caught some big fish in june but more earler--best bait red worms--leave the crawlers at home!

How deep are they?? Do you ever try to catch them on a fly rod??

Fox:

They usually don't run real deep. In fact sometimes it is amazing how shallow they can be. I have caught several on fly rod. For Fly Rod I generally use scud/sow bug patterns and wolly worms/buggers. Usually dark colors.

Pound for pound Redear fight harder and are stronger than any fish I know of. Big Redear are a real blast to catch on a 3 wt rod.

I agree with carp....leave the crawlers at home. Red worms are better if you want to bait fish for them.
