for the past couple of weeks i've been fishing the delta. fighting the wind more then fighting fish. so today, i decided on a solo trip up the hill to Amador. limme tell you, i'm realistic, today it roughly took me 11 hours to pull out a limit... my hardest limit earned too. all day, the trout weren't interested in any of the lures i put in front 'em. so it came down to good 'o powerbait. all trout were 2-3lbs.

Nice way to scratch out some fish. I hear it's pretty rough for the bankers. Congrats!!!

Way to go JV. Sometimes the best limits are the ones you work real hard for. Somtimes.... LOL

Way to stick it out James, took me 9 hours last week for a limit. Were you past the spillway?

Doing better there that I have. 7hrs bank nada. 6-ish hrs tube, nada. 5-6hrs toon, nada. yesterday I was there around 6hrs on my toon and finally caught a fish. funny part is as I was stringing the trout I tossed the bait over the side, next thing I knew I hooked a bluegill :)

I was soo tempted to stay longer but the wind was picking up and kicking around for hours on end wears you out.

James, was it crowded? Hoping to hit Amador sometime this week, probably the last trip as the weather is warming up rapidly.

Nice limit. :Butthead:
I realized over the last few times the fish turn on and off throughout the day so if a spot isnt hitting move to a new spot. I get lots of phatties with bluefox spinners over kastmasters.

13836 checkout this 5.2 big gut cutthroat. Bought a Fosters, opened it, first drink, cast out let it sink and wham! I also just threw it out right in front the marina. Let your lure sit on the bottom for a beer drink and then reel it in. :yoda1:

Nice fish! Good beer too!!!!!!! I've seen some BIG fish come in from that area, mostly on Rapalas.
