Tried Amador for a few hour Christmas afternoon. Launched around 1:00pm and fished ti'll dark. It was my first time there and wow, was my fish finder lite up. Problem was tricking them suckers into biting. Caught one on a brown grub trolling it just below the surface, and another on a gold kastmaster on the surface. Nice fish in the 2-3lbs range, but not the 5-10lber I was shooting for. Towards dark we seen fish hitting the surface, and as I got the boat even close, they scattered(real boat shy it seems). One fish was absolutely loaded with little silver bait fish. Minnows maybe? Next time I will definitely try to match the hatch and mimic those bait fish.
