Hi Guy’s,

I was at Pyramid all weekend boy what a cold one it was. [smiley=cold.gif]
I went to pick up my boat at Crosby’s and the lock was frozen my lock on the boat was also frozen thank god I had my heater I just turned it on and presto I was able to get my boat yeah. [smiley=dancingorange.gif]

I fished Friday with Lyle and Art we headed to block house I fished it hard with only 4 fish to the boat and we didn’t get them until after 2pm we were using stingkings and spoons down 20-25 feet.

On Saturday I picked the boat up at Crosby’s and headed to get some gas I wanted to see if the marina had cheaper gas. I have never driven my boat in snow and boy was I surprise when I’m heading down the hill and I can feel my boat starting to slide. [smiley=yikes.gif]

I thought holly crap [smiley=mind-blowing.gif] what the heck so I put my truck in 1st gear and put my 4x4 on high and I’m heading straight to the water. *[smiley=yikes.gif]Art was looking at me like what the heck I told him no biggie were sliding and I’m not for sure if we will stop ::). I knew I couldn’t turn it because I would jack knife.

I have no clue what I did but it worked I was able to get control again and then I turned it toward the dirt. The gas was 2.98 so I went back to Crosby’s it was 2.48. *:D

We met Lyle’s brother and his family at Pelican. Art and I took out little Matt he is 10. Matt had his boat but he has never taken it out at Pyramid so we followed him around to make sure he was ok.

Little Matt got a beautiful 23 ½ in the process Art ended up losing my big rubber net. >:( Again we didn’t catch the fish until 2pm we headed back into the dock to pick up Mark and Julie.

We tried to plane but to much weight so we just fished by Pelican and windless bay caught 3 more fish 1 being a double. *[smiley=cheerleader.gif]

I took Fishing Buddy out on Sunday we headed to the mushroom what a beautiful day Sunday was compared to the other 2 days. W caught 12 fish to the boat nothing real big but heck I was happy I got to fish for a change. *I caught a few on the watermelon stingking and then I switched to the rainbow spoon.

John was killing them on spoons he used I believe 5 different ones and caught fish on them all. We were fishing from 22-25 feet down in 45 to 120 feet of water.
:'(I left my camera at home so I will post the pictures on Tuesday.

Glad to see your still hitting it. Sounds like you had a crowd this weekend. Congrates on the fish.

Great report Chic, Captain Compassion and I were talking today about taking a shore trip up there Saturday or Sunday after the Topaz opener. Real cool that you did what you did to keep your rig out of the drink. Sometimes our brains kick in without us knowing it, fight or flight.....Jetspray

What a nice Day at Pyramid, A litte wind in the morning and calm the rest of the afternoon . Caught most of the fish on Spoons, Red with black dots ,,green with red dots, Thomas buoyant red, and a Double flutter, gold with Red stripe. All of them By the Mushroom down 27ft on the south side of the sand Bar that jets out and gets real shallow!

You did well Captain Beth. I was working on Friday and was actually glad to be out plowing snow in a warm loader. I actually was thinking just how miserably cold it must have been at Pyramid. Sunday sure was nice, and today felt downright tropical. 12 fish to the boat is better than my boat did. We only managed 9, although one was a ten pounder. The best fishing was definitely in the late afternoon. Apex's were the hot thing on my boat, and I almost put a spoon on, but I just don't have much faith in the spoons.

I know what you mean by spoons but they really worked ;)

Nice report and pics Chick. I can't wait to go back up there again. Sounds like someday I may need a 4-Wheel Drive. :-?

12-30-2008, 05:53 PM
Chick, good to see you get the boy on such a nice fish. The smile says it all.

Always an adventure with you, isn't it? ;) ;D

Sounds like you had a good weekend.
I was able to meet up with Mongo on Monday. We fished the south part of the lake from 10-4:30.
I think we landed about 12 fish total. 7 for Mongo the rest to me. It was a bit tough at the beginning. I think Mongo had 7 bites before before he landed his first fish. I was beginning to wonder if I had made the fish gods mad, Tim had 3 or 4 fish before I even had my first bite. The biggest fish was about 24"(Mongo's). We caught most of our fish 20' otw in water 25-70' deep. We used apexes primarily.
Tim had the camera and is staying at the lake for a few days so he might post some pics later.

Were they bitting real soft? This time of year we should be picking up more but it's never the same each year I'll be going out again this weekend for another try :D

I know last week the water was 45 hopefully its 43 now :)

12-31-2008, 09:38 AM
I would say they were biting very soft, I noticed the same thing the week before. Funny thing is we found that speeding up to 2.8-3.1 made for more bites sticking.
Hope you have a good weekend. I had a blast fishing with Tim, I hope to get to fish more often with him on Mondays.

and have a Happy New Year!
