For the first time in many weeks, my mid week day off was warm with calm winds so headed to Pyramid with son and daughter. We hit Popcorn rock area fishing at 25-35 feet in 55-80 feet of water OTW with U-20 FF. Caught fish on fire tiger, pink pearl and fl red. Setback was 30-40 feet and trolling 1.8-2.0 MPH. Had a couple of hits on an orange spoon toplining. Hooked 11, landed 7 - 1 below 17, 3 at 18-20 kept and 3 in the 20-24 slot. Two LDRs and 2 SDRs, once looked at 25-26 inches. Best action was about 1/4 mile off Popcorn beach, lots of schooling fish there. Got a few near Cattleguard. Did not see any caught from shore and we did not hook any fish in close to shore.
We were buzzed by the Air National Guard at about 500 feet. Is this a C-130?

Now that is an excellent report. Those are certainly nice fish and happy smiley faces. Water temps are a are above 50. Seem to be fish everywhere. I'll be at Pelican, both the shore and trolling from Thursday through the weekend. Hope I can get fish as nice as those. Thanks for the report Doc.

Yes that's a C130. Closest base I know of is NAS Fallon. Don't know if there's an ANG squadron there or not....thanks for the report :)

That one I believe comes from the NG post at the Reno Airport just on the east side of the field. Nice shot of your youngin's with some fish and you as well. Thanks for the heads up on where they are lined up to fish for.:D:trout:........Jetspray
