Left Wed. headed for Pyramid for the first time. Fished Wed. thru Sun. with WillBilly, my Wife and son Willy. Had a great time.
The fishing was awesome!!. We have had lots of reports about how well our Double Flutters work over there, so we decided we better get over there and try them ourselves. Wow!! :o Our best colors this trip were Firetiger, Gold/red, Gold/siver, Black/red. Trolled these at 1.7-1.8 mph. Some other sniffers said they were able to troll these up to 2.2 mph. Thanks to everyone for tips and reports.
Caught some real nice fish. Will definitely be going back again!
Here's a couple of pics.

During the winter and early spring (the water is still only 43 degrees in the AM), the larger Pyramid trout don't like to suspend or to chase bait very far. The nice thing about the double flutter is that they work down to 1.3 mph. They also don't sink much, even at low speed. So you get very good depth control when trolling the shallow contour breaks.

We need to talk more off line about a special pattern for springtime spawners.

Hi Doc

hope you can make a UVR trip it would be fun to get your input on a few of the new ideas.

Look for the new Mini-Skirts coming soon???, we tested some of the many patterns last year and they are killers of fish.

Thanks for all the info Doc you make the boards and Fests something to look foreword too.

Thanks Doc for the report. Glad you are enjoying the lures.
We'll "talk" more about a new color.
Wilson--you let the "cat" out of the bag. The New Mini Skirts will be out this week. Just don't tell Frank ;)
