4/29 Trout Repo

5 posts in this topic

With finals looming just around the corner, being only a week away, Sunday was the only day I knew I would be able to get out. I didn't get out any too early (college and early mornings don't go together on weekends). Left the apartment around 11:00 and made it to the stream a little before noon.

Started off catching one fish and having three more hit in the pool by the bridge. Not bad for the first time out, in the very first spot. Fishing slowed for awhile after that. Could have been due to the other footprints in the area. The farther I got upstream the less footprints there were and the better the fishing got.

Caught and released around 25 fish in a few hours. Many were in the 6-8" range. Managed to catch a few that went 10" and 12", one 13", and a very healthy 17".

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
