After school Thursday i got in the truck and headed up to camanche. two of the boys were already there and had only got 1 fish so far. picked up my cousin in dublin at 4. Got up there around 6 due to the bad traffic through Castro valley and livermore. set up camp and the boys got back to camp with only the one fish. had a good dinner of lengua taco's and was up shooting the breeze with my cousin and friend till 4 in the moring. got up around 7 and 5 of us hit the water in my buddy's striper. Fished till around 12 and only got 1 fish. Made a run into lockeford for some supplies and hit the water later in my kayak. I was paddling around the launch ramp when i saw the plant truck pull up. i watche some pigs flow out of the truck and paddled back to the cove where i beach it and ran up to jump in my truck. my cousin was already there and he had been watching the fish jump all around him. On my second cast i get a solid hookup on my kastmaster. doesnt feel too big but its fighting back. When i saw this fish come up i saw how big it really was. I immediately jumped in the water to cradle the fish and throw him on shore. the second i got him on shore my 6 pound test broke. my heart was racing as this was my biggest trout ever. I drove over to the store and it weighed in at 8lbs 3 oz. Dave took the boat out that night with some of the guys and got not a single bite. Had some aranchera tacos that nite and hit the sack early. the next day we had to run back into town in the morning for some more supplies. when we got back there were some repairs needed on the trailer bunks so dave launched the boat and let me take it out. I had my cousin ben and a friend tom and his son chris onboard. we ran out to the damn and ben got a planter size trout. decided to run over to north shore and fish there. took a few passes and got a nice 2 pounder. on the next pass i see a fish thrash the surface and then notice its toms little spinning rod. chris fights the fish and gets in a solid 6 pounder. two more passes produced one fish and then we called it a day. had elk burgers that night and went to sleep around 12. the next day i let dave take the old guys out on the boat and me and my cousin fished the pond and some main lake spots. we didnt get anything, but a pass off shore of where we were produced a nice brown trout for dave. nothing else after that. went back, packed up camp and made the trek home. I did get a personel best out of the weekend. I guess it was the karma of handing off so many big fish off before. well, hope you enjoyed.
