Arrived at Block House at Pyramid at 11:00 AM and fished until 2:15. The weather was clear, calm and cold until the wind started whipping up at 2:00. Caught 3 trout between 20 and 22 inches. Lost at least twice that many more including *a brute that showed himself after about 4 minutes then tossed my lure back in my face. >:( My best estimate is 30 inches or so. Most anglers seems to be doing well. I got fish and strikes on a fire tiger Krocadile and a silver Moxie spoon with green facing. My custom painted Kastmaster lasted 3 casts until the paint came off. :-[ perhaps better paint is in order. After fishing Mrs Compassion took me to the buffet at the Sparks Nugget where I ate myself into a stupor. A very wonderful Christmas day.

Hey CC, have you tried those jigs there? And do you know if you can take a 2stroke motor in there?

So you are a Big Kahuna now. Congratulations. That title and $2.00 can get you a draft beer during most happy hours. 8-)

Great job Capt. That's what I wanted for Christmas Too :'( But the cool part is I have nine days off and I didn't talk about fishing to her once today so she said I could go fishing any 5 of the 9 days I want. That almost made me cry :'( ;D ;D ;D ;D

:)MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL :)

Tight lines GT.

On painting them you might want to take some med grit sandpaper to it first, or it probally won't bond.

I suspect that was the majority of the problem. Nothing sticks to the polished brass surface of that lure. Thanks Ric.

Nice trip Capt. You look about as cold up there as I was over the weekend. Looking to find myself a nice pair of gloves if these 30 degree mornings keep up.
I have a five day weekend coming up starting Friday so I hope to get a little time in on the water. I find myself in that spot of hoping for rain because we need it so bad, but just not on my days off so I can enjoy time out on the water.
Looks like you are all dialed in on Pyramid Cutts. That fish looks almost as pretty as the last one you caught at Red.

For Pyramid in late December it was quite nice. It was cold but if you dress for it that's ok. It's the wind that kills you. I was told on Monday the wind was blowing 50 MPH but folks were still there catching fish. Pyramid is not a place for sissies. If you haven't gone you gotta go. Hook a big Cutt and your weather problems sortta melt away.

Sorry you can't make it. If the fishings good I will fish it often for the first couple of weeks. They are giving away $$$ for fish. Maybe I can make some Pyramid gas money. 8-)

With a 5 fish limit and being just over "one hill" instead of many,
plus the prize money, I would think that one would be a no brainer !!
;D ;D

Will have to make a trip with you this year. I also owe a trip to
steve & tony.................. ;)

No brains involved only a 1/2 hour drive. Going to scout out Topaz today.

Sounds like the Captain is as close to Topaz as I am to Pyramid. Im feeling your pain on the drive issue. 30 min to Pyramid (for me) with the boat, or nearly 2 hours to Topaz (for me) with or with out the boat and risking not being able to launch.

All things being said I'd trade Topaz for Pyramid this time of year. Topaz will be fun but Pyramid is special.

They both have their distinct charms. Topaz being twenty minutes from G-ville is certainly one! ;)

PK,

Starting on jan 7th, I will be having Mondays off. So, maybe we can get together and go down to Topaz for some fishing. Not to mention getting out on Pyramid.
