Hey dont get your hopes up for a big day at loch lomond. * Its not the great reservoir for trout that it once was. *Anywayz the hot lure up there is a REALLY SMALL "super duper" *and i mean really small. *i think they even seel them at the little ranger station there by the dock. *The trout never get very deep there even in the summer so you dont need much weight. *Between 0-10 ft down and go REAL slow. *Just fast enough to get the lure to work. *GOOD LUCK! *You might see me out there on the first, but I will be looking for a lunker bass. *I've got a few 7's and 8's out of there, but they seem to be few and far between these days. *I used to sneak in when i was in grade school before it re-opened about 15-20 years ago and caught hogs all the time, but those days are long gone. *

Have you tried a super duper with a flashier or dodger?

I also fished today from 7A.M. To 12:45 P.M. Awesome weather for trolling. You may have seen me I was in my 10' aluminum Gamefisher. *Had about 25 hits. Landed thirteen fish, lost three at the boat released all but five. Just finished cooking three of them for dinner.YUM-YUM sooooo good.
