My 8 year old Granddaughter wanted to spend the day with granpa and of all things she wanted to go fishing.So off to Pardee we went to spend some quality time together. *
We were on the water by 6:30 trolled out of the rec cove were Mia picked up her first fish on a fruit salad dodger/crawler set up just outside the last set of no wake markers at two colors of leadcore line=10ft .
Went straight to the dam when my pole was darn near yanked out of the boat,thinking it was a snag i grab it and it started ripping line.I new i had a good size fish so i took my time and played it.Thinking i had a 5-7 pound trout i am a happy guy and can't wait to net this fish.
When we got it to the top it turned out to be a Catfish about 5 pounds (bummer).We stayed in the dam area where we ended up catching a total of 6 trout all planters 14-16''. LOOK HOW BIG!!!
My granddaughter had a great time and loved the part of reeling in and netting the fish.Like most kids she's a bit ansy in between hook ups.
All fish were caught on either a fruit salad dodger/crawler combo or flashers/crawler combo.3 colors 15 -20 feet deep.I did snag on something to the left of the dam that took a set of flashers.
When we were at the cleaning station i had the privilage of meeting tracker T and his son cleaning a mess of kokes.
