View Full Version : Tough Day at Cachuma 1/4

We got 4 fish but we worked for them! Got on the water about 7:15 with lines in the water by 7:20. We started out trolling quickly looking for active fish and threw everything in the tackle box at them that could be trolled 2.5-3.5 mph for nada, not even a strike. Around 10 we took a snack break came up with a new gameplan. We slowed it down with dodger/crawlers and grubs. Within 2 minutes of putting out the watermelon sidekick/ crawler gets hammered and that turns out to be the best fish of the day

So we think we are on to a pattern but we aren't. That's the only action the slow moving stuff got all day. We got frustrated so we started drifting bait and casting spoons for nothing. Finally decide to do what we like best and started quick trolling again. The next fish came around 2 on a silver shad rap going about 2.8 mph. Get on a bit of a hot bite and picked up the two others. Here is my buddy with his best

Long day for only 4 fish but the weather was great and the lake wasn't crowded so it was awesome!
