Fishing with my girlfriend the other day and she foul hooked a tilapia worth eating right in the eye! Ouch lol. If only it wasn't in the bayou!...The tilapia must of been swimming the other direction my girlfriend was reeling. Anybody have any tips on catching Tilapia other then foul hooking it in it's eye?

      Corn, Bread, and worm all work to catch them, but the funnest was is with an arrow. I too have heard the rumors of big cats in lake Houston.😜

      I catch tilapia in my bayou all the time on corn or small twister grubs and 1" paddle tail on a small 1/16 oz jighead. Be ready for a fight!

      cast net is cheating cause they dont get a chance to fight but it works good I just like using a trouble hook and weight

      @slatwater no brother no fishing lately havent had a chance but I will in two weeks im gonna go crazy lol I found some new spots for largemouth how about u
    19. tonyboy 0
      its not cause tilapia doesnt eat bread like people say or worms and its not as easy as u think u have to give it a try to understand they fight harder than large ...more mouth and some other fishes

      @slatwater I hit up Lake Houston other day with my homeboy, but no luck! We gotta wet some line soon as in ASAP!!!!

      @slatwater That's cheating bro ain't no excitement in that, that's like having a 10LB bass jump in ur boat it defeats the purpose of fishing lol

    23. miguel moreno 0

    24. Ignacio 0
      @tonyboy So you're saying only way that you catch them is foul hooking them with a treble hook? I've seen people use bread, but I haven't tried it yet...
    25. tonyboy 0
      thats the only way u can catch tilapia with a trouble hook and a weight we do it all the time during the season
