Got the chance to with my Second Parents at Lake Camanche... We started off the day kinda slow, we picked up a Fish here and there... So we made a move, turned out to be a good move!!! Outside down rigger gets slammed... Picked up and start reeling this Beast in... We then slide the net under this 9.1 lbs Lassen Hog... This Fish was my Personal Best with a Spoon!!! The a little later, the same rod gets slammed again, this time Diana is on it!!! She fights this Hog for a few mins... I slide the net under this 6.3 Lassen Hog... Her Personal Best... So we started heading in...

Then On the Radio we heard someone saying that his Partner Jump in the Lake!!! Well he didn't come back up!!! We were right in front of the Marina, so i ran up there to tell them... I then Talked to Richard the Ranger up there on the Phone... So after the fish were Weighed, we put everything up to head home... Then as we were rounding the corner, over the by the North Corner of the dam, we saw the Ambulance and some other Rescue Personal... I hope this person was found and his all right... Awesome day, with a little downer on the End... Here are some photo's to enjoy!!!

Great job Robbie! A couple HOGS there. Not to be a downer to your excellent post but word I received is the "incident" you saw the Rescue team for did not end well. Cant find any news on it however so no details except word of mouth

Easter came early, congrats on the PB's!

Way to go! Thanks for your help too. Sad that the divers and police were keeping us away from the dam and we did not know why until now. Yikes. We got our first fish to the new boat in spite of everything. Thanks Robbie!

Kristy: Your Welcome!!! I'm just glad you guys were able to get into some Camanche Trout... There are some BIG Piggies in there... Robbie

Robbie it is great when you have a lake dialed in like that. The results are obvious, you know what, where, and when to do the right things. The pictorial and documentation are outstanding. Sorry events interfered with a great day, but that is how it is sometimes. Thanks for the fish porn...........Jetspray
