Del Valle April 12th Easter Sunday.
Our 11th fishing trip this year.
Our fish total in 09 so far is 70.
2- fish
Mike- 0
Kristy- 2
Super nice in the morning- windy as hell later.

We got up at 4:45 and got on the lake at 7:36. Water was like glass.
We started off at the buoys across from the docks, had a few bites. Then we moved to the shallow end of the lake near the swimming areas.
9:34- Kristy caught a 15" trout on a night crawler and three sunrise power eggs. Released.
Later we motored out to the dam area.
11:37 Kristy caught a 12" trout on a night crawler and yellow power eggs. It swallowed the hook so deep that it could not be saved. He had bright red meat, my favorite.

Next we went to Heron bay and anchored off that large concrete rock thingy, got nothing.
It was getting miserably windy and we finally went back to our first spot of the day.

We bait fished, Drift fished, tried all colors of power eggs and fake worms.
Kristy put a night crawler on a bobber and still not a bite.

The lake was getting crazy with people celebrating Easter.
Paddle boats, and people renting boats that don't know how to drive them.
We finally threw in the towel at 4:30.
We know better to fish Del Valle when the wind is so evil.

Anyways, Mike and I have the whole week off work so we will try to squeeze out a couple more trips.
Thats it for now fish friends..........Mike and Kristy.

Yeah I agree with you, But that lake can be so fickle. We have caught some whoppers there too.
The only thing we didnt do today is troll. Thats what made all the difference i guess.
I congratulated Fishmaster a few minutes ago.
Gotta give kudos where its due...........Mike and Kristy.
