fished collins today, it was raining on and off the whole day, nothing to hard though...we picked up a fish here on there on different things, one on a cripplure, one on a seps pro secret and on different grubs...the bite turned on once the sun peeked through and hit the water, we started getting hits left and right on the grubs we had out so we switched 3 rods with grubs and 1 with a spoon tipped with nightcrawler...we got fish on firetiger/yellow/orange and chart grubs, ended with 13 fish total keeping the 10 that didnt make it back to life, all fish were small dfg planters and all caught within the top 10 feet of water...
not much for radio traffic on the lake, although i did make a radio check and was speaking to someone on Lake oroville :o

Nice job, I bet that rain didn't help the water clarity any. I'll have to try grubs next time I go.
