hello again guys. Went up to Bon Tempe to get our annual pass however come to find that they don't sell the annual pass at the pay machine any longer. Sucks but oh well.

We decided to go to the back of Bon Tempe so that way I can have some room to practice my fly fishing casting.

We couldn't have asked for a better day weather wise. It was perfect!! A lot of people out hiking and enjoying the day. We finally got setup around 11:30 and fished until 5. It wasn't a hot bite but if you put in your time, fish will come. We saw a few people leaving with stringer of fish.

As for us, we caught 6 and kept 2. Had a lot of missed action. Most of them were on the small side. DFG planted the lake on Friday with 1000 lbs of 1/2 pounders.

2 of the fish we kept were good size. One was 17 inch and the other one was 16 inch. The 16 inch meat was really red compare to the 17 inch. Possible hold over.

Fish were caught with green pb, red/green mice tail, kastmaster, worms, orange pinched crawler. I was hoping to catch something on the fly rod but no go. I'm getting the hang of it though thanks for all the great advise from here and the fly fishing section.

It was a good day. I'll upload more pictures from the camera soon but here are some teaser from the iphone. Enjoy and until next time.

Nice looking fish Crazy. Looking at the tails of those fish the would both seem to be holdovers. Keep working on the sissy stick. You'll get the hang of it.

Way to go CF!!! Glad you got to get some fish and still practice with a new technique. It will be fun to get them on the fly rod.

Thanks!

thanx guys.

alexdesignz:

you purchased it when you got there from your iphone? I know you can mail it in, purchase it online, or in person. When you purchase it online, did you display your phone on your dash :) ? Just curious.

wow 15 cars deep...we had 6. Sorry to hear that you got skunked. Good luck next time. We might hit up Alpine next time.

Here are just a few more pictures:

I put a note on my dash saying I purchased it with the conf# number. I could have still gotten a ticket, but would have gotten off.

Last time I went I paid with cash and it didn't give me a receipt, so I had no way to verify. I just wrote a note that said "I paid $8 at 10:08am, but didn't get a receipt" and signed my name. I'm not sure if anyone came by to check, but I didn't have any problems. I've gotta say though, that check in station is annoying. I've waited behind plenty of cars before thinking to myself "how does it take these jerks 5 min to pay and get a damn receipt?" Then I proceed to take 5 min paying and getting a receipt myself because the machine is slow and unreliable!

I got one ticket last year cause I forgot my pass. They give you one freebie and punch your card.
