Nice job again.
I have a question.
Are you tying your lures directly on the line or do you use anything else like swivels, weights, dogers, sents, etc?
Thanx for the posts and nice job again!

I have been using a swivel for ease of changing out lures but that is it.

Water temp is dropping quickly it was 65F on Saturday all fish were caught either toplining rapalas or down 10 ft OTW just to get them out of the way of the other lines.

Glad to see Del Valle kicking out some quality FISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Water must be cooling down to be picking them off so close to the

surface, real nice looking Fish, thanks for the report, looks like I will

have to add DV to my next lake to Fish List ;)

Was at DV on Sat 10/6. We finished the day with a mixed bag of stripers, large / small bass, a sole slimy catfish and some trout taken in Heron Bay mid-day. We got the trout after joining my brother and four yr old nephew who had limits of trout in just over two hrs of fishing.
All trout looked like they got in a fight with my prop and were missing most fins and rudders.
