My new mascot Dragon went with me to join Ken W and Cappy77 for a day on Ice House. We were on the water at 5:15 in the dark and lines out and first fish went to Ken(6am) a bow on a jointed Rapala .We ripped some more and Cappy put the next one in the boat(7am) a brown on the gold black Rapala .We put several more to the net and then it was time for breakfast.
Ham ,potatoes and eggs

Dragon made sure we didn’t burn anything.

We slowed down and put out dodgers and draggins for a couple hours and caught a few more.We decided t drop down to the big marks in 90’ of water we were marking big fish from 30’ to 70’ no takers.

Ken and Dragon swapping lies ;D

We went back to ripping when the shadows started to get long again and at this time we took bets on “next” fish I got 2 dollars for my duck fund .We did it again and I lost one.(oh well $1 for the duck)Our last fish was caught at 4 pm


As we were getting ready to trailer the boat the cable that controls the bucket broke so we put the boat on the trailer with the kicker. Big bummer.


Water temp was 50.3 and a calm day.13 fish to the net 4 Browns and 9 Bows.We fished top to 60’ deep. No one lure stood out. Cappy took the biggest fish with a 1.5 lb Brown on a Gold Black Rapala. Draggin in Tequilla Sunrise got two

Rich, I was real scared at first that you put a minor in the boat with you three, but once I saw that you offered him a beer, I knew all was good ;) ;D
just like you slackers to make the newby do all the work ;D

Congrats on a good day out there and a great report, now quit playing with dolls and get back to work >:( ;D

Terry we never go hungry on that boat we always eat good [smiley=chowtime.gif]Dragon was asking when we might be going in your fine boat ;)

John Im lucky to have any friends so I wont complain ;D

Joel we'll have to give it a go

James dragon is a young Dragon he's only 100 or so and he does look young for his age and he brought his own beer [smiley=cheers.gif]

now quit playing with dolls and get back to work


Unless you mean reeling one in or setting up the downrigger,hooking up the boat,netting a fish Im not sure just exactly what it is your talking about ;D ;D

GVF,
I'm glad you mentioned his age, I wouldn't want you to get a ticket for him not wearing his PFD. I also noticed that he was ready next to the net NOT like some FREEZEE BRAIN that forgot the net on Saturday. [smiley=winkfs.gif]

FREEZEE BRAIN that forgot the net on Saturday

Yep, I forgot it, aint ashamed to admit it either, felt the trout needed a fighting chance with Dennis, Hoghunter and myself on the water, didnt matter much though as Dennis and I only lost one hoisting them in by hand, felt much better than say someone who plowed the lower forty *;) *;D
Plus I didnt have to get out of the boat *:o *;D


He is also hoping to go to the river but someone seems slow to get a trip together

Sorry buddy, the river is out, just lost another prop in there *>:(
Not enough fish to make it worth while, a trip somewhere else is always a possibility though, my net is still hiding at home, maybe we should do amador *;D *;D
we should do it in Kens boat, I am sure his anode's need some cleaning, its been about a year *:o *;D

Ken, great pics, except for the cold chocolate drinks, didnt anyone ever tell you that if you drink mixed drinks like that your friends will all be weird? Oh wait, you fished with Rich, never mind, you know *;)

We barbequed Johnsonville brats up a Hell hole one morning about 10:00 o,clock and as the smoke rose around the boat just about everyone we trolled past seemed to make a beeline for the boat ramp to get lunch. What a way to clear up the boat traffic on the lake.

Freon, where were you? *I had leftover breakfast burritos

Huh? I hunted you guys down and delivered my burritos to you, how come you didnt do the same *;)
It would have been just a quick, short ride to Sacramento to drop those off from the lake * >:(
And I thought you guys were my friends *:'( *;D
I teach you guys how to have a good morning on the water and then you treat me like a red headed stepchild, I see how it is *>:( * ;D

Thanks Brad ;)

Sorry buddy, the river is out, just lost another prop in there Angry

Sorry to hear about the prop thing bummer :-?

I'm sure Dragon will ride with you ;)

we should do it in Kens boat, I am sure his anode's need some cleaning, its been about a year


We got to get it running again first we had a small problem with a cable out there
As far as the anodes I did a good job of cleaning them on the rocks at Loon ::)

BK the weather up there was great I wasa suprised that he went to shorts but soon after I was wishing I had brought mine :-[

It would have been just a quick, short ride to Sacramento to drop those off from the lake

We tried to talk Cappy into it but he was having to much fun drinking ,eating, and catching

Frank it was a gift from a good friend
