Met with fellow Sniffers Goldentrout and Mr. Sockeye at the Burger King in Spanish Springs and down to Pyramid. Arrived at 7:30 and on the water in Mr. Sockeye's 18 1/2 foot North River at 7:45. Fished until around 7 in the evening. Total of 28 fish in the boat to 23 inches. All fish were caught on Flat Fish mostly in a frog pattern. Trolling speed 1.8 MPH at a depth of 20 feet in 40 to 60 feet of water. *Fishing was generally slow until around 2 in the afternoon. We picked up 4 trout in the Pelican Spider Point area then decided to troll North for a bit. Just North of Warrior Point in the beach area we started seeing good numbers of fish. Nothing big but non stop action until wind and darkness drove us from the water. We even had one double. Spend an hour at the Sniffer Fest camp fire and put a few faces to names. JohnB, Farrier Frank, Doc, Topaz Tom and Sherry and others it was nice to finally meet you. Goldentrout. Nice fishing with you again. Mr. Sockeye, Thanks for the boat ride and the instruction in how to use a down rigger. A long and wonderful day.

Great report! Sounds like fun :D May be heading up Tues or Wed. No boat this time around.


:-X Keep this quiet.... :-X

Try mooching a red spoon with black diamonds between the submerged boulders off Warrior. They's some biguns hidin' in thar.... Bottom is pretty sandy there, with few snags. Let it settle to the bottom, count to 10, give'er a snap up and let'er settle back down. 9 times outta 10, you'll get hit on the snap up. Sumthin 'bout that initial flash drives 'em nuts.

I was surprised that no one was fishing that spot. Guess they were all at Pelican.

Looks like you did well Chick. Those pictures are beautiful! The water looks pretty calm, I'm glad you guys had some nice weather.

Great day on the water yesterday. We worked hard to find those fish, but once we did, the action was awesome. That should be my new motto, "Persistance Pays Off." 28 in the boat is a great day. :) Great company too guys, GOLDENTROUT and Captain Compassion, I will try to get you guys on another boat ride soon. I think some of the action could be due to the secret chumline we were using. ;) WIZ and only thouse two guys will know what I'm talking about. This is an internet anachronism kept between the three of us. [smiley=lipsrsealed.gif] Once again, you guys were alot of fun to fish with, and glad I could teach an old dog some "new tricks" on those downriggers. There was one precarious moment with a rod going overboard, ;D but it worked out okay, and we almost landed that fish. :D

Thanks for setting up the Fest Chick. You couldn't have picked a better date and place. The fish were there. That's all that can ever be asked. A question. Who baked those wonderful brownies?

SilverQueen and I had a great time, getting to see old friends and meet new ones :D
We didnt have the large count days as some of the others, but we did catch quite a few, fished mostly at hells kitchen, but did the ramp fishing thing with the armada :o
Also tried the needles area for no fish. Pics and more of a report tomorrow, exhausted after washing the boat.

Friday Ric1 and Fishing Buddy went out with me buddy forgot how many fish we caught on Thursday and Friday to much Tuaca ::)

Saturday Fishing buddy caught 4 I caught 2 Rick 0 [smiley=nana.gif]
We were having a hard time with the boat to much weight :o

Sunday was are best day with 2 nice ones to the boat all of mine was caught on the sting king purple and black with eyes ::)

The down fall of the trip was that my trailer winch broke my board on the trailer fell off so this weekend buddy said he will help be fix them oh and also my 3rd chair the part that is attached to the boat was losing bolts. OH YEAH MY WINDOW IN THE BOAT BROKE AGAIN :'(Thank god it’s all easy stuff to fix before Amador 8-)

Thank you everyone for a great time and picking up the mess on the beach. Sherry and Kevin thanks for helping me finish the shots ;D
