I also wanted to take one more shot at those little Bluegills, but with "3". And take a shot I did. Only problem I ran into was the wind. It was pretty calm when I got there about 9:00, but by 10 is was blowing hard enough that fishing with "3" was no longer an option, BUT I did manage a couple before I put "3" away. Fun.
I went to the truck and got my little Okuma and continued to hammer the Bluegills. I probably caught and released a dozen, but just didn't keep count.
Yuki had a couple lines out and I had one with rainbow Power Bait. And as luck would have it, Yuki went to the "little boys room" and he got the only bite of the day.
Being the nice guy I am, I reeled it in and it was a nice Rainbow going 1 lb. 10 oz.
|Only fish of the day.|
We also made a new friend. Ozzie (like Ozzie Osborne, his words) from Stockton. We filled him with stories of big catches, how to fish the lake, what to use, and managed to bomb with great flair.
Since my instructions (from the wife) were to bring home two Lightning Trout (which I obviously didn't) and Yuki was headed to the casino to lose more money, we gave the trout to Ozzie.
So I think it's time for my yearly Spring trip to Ice House for ice out. Maybe next week.
