OK, Everybody Sit Down


I went fishing this morning. Please no applause.

I met Yuki at Lake Pardee at 9:00. I had reservations about fishing Lake Pardee. It's been hot and cold over the years, but mostly cold.

Three things happened.

One, I missed the first bite. Probably didn't wait long enough for it to get a good hold on the bait which was 3 green Power Eggs.

Second, got a bite on rainbow Power Bait and set the hook. The line broke at the top eye. After a few selective 4 letter words, I discovered that there is a fray/snag/rough spot on that eye so that even if you just tug the line, it breaks. That rod is on hiatus.

Three, I hooked up on my little Okuma rod to the trout in the picture below. It was with 3 green Power Eggs.

Only fish of the day
It was the only fish of the day, but when the only fish is 4 pounds 5 ounces, who cares that it's the only one.

Now you can cheer.

 Yuki got skunked.

Trying a new spot the weekend of the 14th & 15th. I'll let you know.

Stay tuned.


  1. Well Mark the wait is over and you have succeeded.

  2. Mark
    A four pounder is a rod bender for sure, just curious did you release it or make a meal out of it???
