Up at 4:30 and on the lake at 8:15. Mike and I had high hopes for today after all the reports of red-hot fishing. We came prepared with a rainbow of different grubs and rapalas. Started near the rock wall and back into the narrows.

First hour goes by and nothing. Not even any fish to be seen on the finder. We did see many familiar faces out there though including Andre and Ron and a couple more who recognized us from the fishing boards.

Hour two and still...nada. Our thinking was that the fish must be hanging at the dam area. We fly out there and start near hat island. Still lifeless on the finder. We did see one boat cheering that they caught a monster. Happy for them but now we were determined to find where the fish were hiding.

I set up my downrigger at 20 ft. Two other top liners out. Made a giant circle with nothing but a lovely view.

By now it is nearly noon and we jet back to the narrows again. Andre was still there and he had a few bites. He said he talked to everyone who passed and at best there was maybe one or two fish for some folks. By the way Andre it was nice finally getting to see you on the water after talking so often! Oh and thank you for wearing your Santa hat!

We saw a giant catfish floating by still alive but in a world of hurt. Not much you can do about that. Sorry kitty cat!

Farther back in the narrows my pole at 20ft down gets hit hard and pops the clip. This happened twice but then nothing. Funny because it was the rainbow serpent spoon and nobody suggested we use that. That was all the action we had today. So red-hot it was not.

Still you know we always make the best of it and had a nice boat ride on a beautiful lake.This was the only rainbow we caught today. Ha Ha.

We left at 1:30 and stopped in Clemments for some good old fashion grub. Then home in time for football.

Yeah SOMEBODY was right when they said we should have gone to Amador. LOL. Not sure where our next outing will be. Still thinking it over. Hope I can squeeze one more trip in before Christmas. Oh and one before new years!
Take care friends!
Mike and Kristy.

Guys that was me that passed you in the narrows you were headed out I was headed in (tanish/gold custom weld ) just after we passed you we got one at 5lbs and another just shy of 2lbs we headed toward hat and nothing swung into the causeway and lost 2 more.

I was out there today and saw you. I was in the oldest boat ever! We got a 2 pound rainbow and a 3 pound bass. Slow by my standards but my 6yr old daughter did all the catching and she had a blast!

Amador was slow yesterday too plus no water in the lake whats's funny is when I was fishing yesterday I was thinking I should have hit Camanche because the red hot reports but turns out it was a slow day for all...

Jeremy and I put 9 in the boat there yesterday to 4.8 lbs. He was pissed he didn't get his 5lb mug. He has pics and will post a report at some point. I thought that was you guys in the narrows with us right before you headed in.

Yes slow day for us. Who was in the red boat? Can't remember what make but you caught a whopper by the sounds you made out by hat island.
Jfitalia, Thanks for the pic!
I am gonna go out solo for a half day tomorrow at Lafayette. Hope I have a better report.
