View Full Version : good day at camanche 12/22

12-23-2013, 10:10 PM
Tayton had been wanting to test out some spinners and I needed to fish. So we decided to hit camanche this passed sunday. Tayton rolled up to my house at 515am and we rolled out. Only to get a mile from my place and then realize we forgot my net. So we circled back and hit the road again at 522am.

We rolled up to the north ramp a little before 7am and dropped the sled in the water and headed for the narrows.

We hit the mouth of the narrows and Tayton drops in wo of his spinners and I drop in a white grub and a orange grub. We get down passed china gulch and circle back and that's when it happens! Tayton stands up and screams "WE GOT A MARKER ON THE FF!!!!"

haha if you look close you can see a little dot! Dude you need a new ff http://outcastanglers.com/forums/images/smilies/more/nana.gif

Not more than a few minutes later Tayton's rod goes bendo and it's fish on! It wasn't huge but it got the skunk off the boat. The fish was caught on his demo spinner so I can't post the pic yet. We get to the mouth again and circle back. This time my White grub back 165ft goes off and it's fish on for me!

A this point I decided to take the orange grub off and switch to a special model rapala that works great at slower speeds around 1.5. I throw a pink one on and send it back 135ft with a side planner. We circle back and head towards the mouth of china gulch and my white grub goes off and it's fish on again on my grub!

As soon as I take this picture my rapala on the side planer get CRUSHED! I grabbed the rod after he fish jumped I hear Tayton say "that's a better fish" This guy was pulling some drag and took probably over 5 mins to get since he was so far back. However as he got close we need he had some size!

As I was fighting this fish I noticed Mike and Kristy we jump coming into the narrows. I was hoping to share some intel with but by the time I landed the fish you were passed me and headed towards the bridge. I also tried finding guys on the radio but I never heard one person all day. What channel are people using?

Anyways we get both my rods back out and then bite seemed to slow a bit with just a couple HNS and LDR's for about an hour. We decided to take off the grubs at this point and speed up to 1.8 and go with more raps in hope of more bigger fish. Tayton scores next on a small hotsteel rap.

Then Tayton scores again on my other special rap I let him tie on

At this point I decided to take off my lunker killer and throw on a bigger fire tiger j7. I let it out 125ft with a side planer and with 5 mins my rod is crushed again! I grab the rod and said "dude this is another good fish" a few minutes later this baby hits the net.
