fished in teh rain. *trolled from the main cove area all the way to the river mouth - teh better area was south of the little island that is poking out of the water near the pump station. *8 take downs with 4 fish on ice. *largest was 4 1/4 lbs and almost 22 inches, the others ranged from 3 pounds down to 2 pounds.

what worked: *sep's orange scented grub, orange/gold f7 rapala, uncle larrys pearl tiger spinner w/ nightcrawler. *all scented with pro-cures anise/krill gel scent. *topline down to 30 feet and sideplaned with a Sep's sideplaner.

we caught the 4 pounder on a sideplaned rapala. *the rain/wind made the waves big so it was tuff to tell at time if we had a fish on the sideplaner. *after a few reel-ins, we just left it out. *well when this fish hit, the rod bent down and stayed down, it hit hard and fought well.

Congrats on the big fish Garry! I've used the side planer and know what you mean by sometimes it is hard to tell if you got fish on. I hope to give Pardee another go this week.

I am planning to hit Pardee for my first time this week. Is the ramp in pretty good shape?
