The Trout Pond Gives Up 2 More

The plan was to meet Rich and Mark at the pond this morning. I had no expectations because the wind was supposed to be blowing gusts up to 40mph, so I planned to fish from the bank. I got there at 900 and the wind was calm, so I put out one rod with Rainbow Power Bait. Put the usual Kastmasters on the other.

The Power Bait produced one fish 12" at 0930 and was quiet the rest of the morning. Of all the slinging I did with Kastmasters, Rapala's, and Little Cleo's, the only one that produced was the Rainbow (pink with spots)colored Kastmaster. This fish was 15" and came at 1015.

For 3 1/2 hours fishing (0900-1230) that was it. A few caught by others, but not many. I talked to the guys out in the float tubes, but no one had a black wiggle tail and Wooly Buggers were not producing anything.

Since very few were caught, I consider my 2, a successful day. Oh, I don't think the wind got above 5 mph. Just a little chop on the water.

Till the next adventure.

  1. All the adventures are good ones, Mark. You just catch more fish on some than on others.

  2. Received an email from your way this evening and just wanted to say thanks. I thought it was wonderful and certainly I remember the good ol' days.

    Continued happy hook ups my friend.

  3. Nice you were able to catch something. Seems that the rainbows also heard the weather report and didn´t want to go for a walk in that "windy weather".

  4. I had caught my limit the other day all on a yellow and red dotted panther martin. stocker trout seemed to love it, this was in the late evening though.

    Nice blog. If u come up to oregon we should fish!

  5. I gotta go with Wolfy and Fish Whisperer. Beats work, and ya caught a couple < bonus :)

    Great blog Mark. I look foward to keeping up with your adventures.
