This wasn't a kayak kind of day, more a sit and read while soaking Power Bait kind of day.
I got to the lake at 8:30 and put one rod out with rainbow PB. Lately when I've been fishing with Yuki and he's caught fish (and I haven't) he's usually using brown Power Eggs. I've never seen them in the store, but I had a plan. It's always good to have a plan.
Here's the plan. I took three Mice Tails in a brown egg with a red tail. I cut off the red tail and Voila, brown Power Eggs. Three on a #6 bait hook and I was ready.
Wasn't long, in fact it was just before 9:00 that I got the first bite. That would be the one on the top. Came in a 1 lb 2 oz.
|2 for the day|
Just before Noon the bigger of the two in the picture was heading away from shore with the white/green/white Power Eggs in it's mouth and had every intention of taking my rod with it.
I usually prop my rods up against my tackle box because the shore is too rocky to put a rod holder in. In the split second it took me to realize the fish was on, he had dragged my rod almost all the way across the tackle box on it's way out into the cove.
He put up a good fight and when in the net weighed in at 1 lb 7 oz.
Guess who's having Rainbow Trout for dinner?
I did finish the book. Had about 150 pages left.
Maybe next time I'll kayak. Stay tuned.
Just a last minute thought. This is post # 1111. Thought you should know.
