Fished solo today at Del Valle. Caught two in the 18 inch range on J-7s toplining and around 1.6 on gps (both released), and one 21.5 inch, 4.5 lber tossing a gold kastmaster (dinner). One hit on a grub @ 20', but didn't stick. All fish in Heron bay/Dam area. All with trophy trout gel. On at 6:30 off at 11:30. Fished with Backcountry today and chatted with Badfish. Nice seeing you guys out there.

Was also out there today. Heard you two chatting, but wasn't my boat so didn't wanna jump on the radio. Caught 7, kept 4(feeding around 5-6 people tonight). All toplinging J7 and J5 firetiger and grey silver. And pulled the mother of all oopsies. Hook in the finger.... had to push it through to th other side :-X. I was the only one not phased by it, the boat owner was literally gagging. It was an excellent day none the less.

Sorry about your finger. If it was a rapala treble, those things are dangerous.

Nice job out there guys. We ended up with 3, the biggest was 3 lbs. All caught on an uncle larry's with a crawler. I lost a nice one on a J9. I need to upgrade all my rapala hooks. >:(

I guys I will be there in the morning. Got everything done for our trip to Mexico we are leaving Monday. So I figured one more trip wouldn't hurt.

Oldschool - good fishing with you and badfish today. Saw you pull "dinner" into the net. Nice fish!

Switched one pole to a Kastmaster shortly thereafter and hooked into a 3# in the same area.

Ended up with 4 fish - 3 on the J7 rainbow pattern and the big guy on the Kastmaster.

All released to fight another day.

Hey Old School, that one Trout looks mighty comfy in his Blue towel,
do you treat all your Fish that nice................................... ;D
That lake can be a tough one to figure out at times, one week it's
Grubs, and the next it's back to Rapalas, good to see you got it all
figured out. Now that Pardee will be closing on Sunday, you'll be
seeing a 14ft Blue Lund with Stars cruising around Del Valle on
Saturdays, don't forget to say hello when you're not netting fish...
