Last time Yuki and I were up there it was a 25 to 30 fish (little Bluegills) day. I was anticipating such a day again.
Katherine and I took our time getting up there since it was Saturday. We left home about 10:10 and were at the lake about 11:15. It's really isn't very far from the house. We were on the water in the "his and hers" kayaks and I had a line in the water as soon as I cleared the launch.
It was just that, a line in the water. I fished near the reeds, out in the middle, at the far end, and just about everywhere else. NOTHING. Not one little Gill to be found.
I would suspect that because of all the people out there and there were a BUNCH, every fish in the lake was probably hiding as best as they can.

Next weekend is 4th of July weekend. You think it was crowded this weekend, Huh, wait until then.
Oh, did I mention I caught a small, about 9" Rainbow. No I didn't take a picture. Yes, I know that the proof is in the picture, but would this face lie to you?
That's it, I got out, I yakked, and I fished. All in all a pretty nice Saturday.
Just beginning out a beautiful lake is a plus---really off limits for the 4th.
Your finally getting out.ReplyDelete
Crowd or not, looks like a great way to spend some outside time. I hear you on NEXT weekend though... (Glad the paddle grips worked for you!)ReplyDelete
