It was flippin cold… [smiley=cold.gif]
I was flying solo today, got on the water at 7:00, surface temp 37…Don’t know what the air temp was, the water from my boots froze on the floor. I was starting to wish I went to Amador. *:D
Got one hit after about 20 minutes, and I was thinking maybe it wouldn’t be too bad of a day. Another 15 or 20 goes by, and 1st LDR.
Finally just before 8:00 I got bit on a white grub with a power egg, a set-up that was on one of the rods from the last Amador trip, that was juiced up with some pro cure trophy trout gel. Landed a nice healthy 12” bow.
Picked up another bow about 45 min later, this one a little bigger *@ 14” .
Things were pretty slow for a while, a couple of hits, another couple LDR’s.
I finally picked up a nice looking 15” brown on a black and gold Rapala at about 9:45, and that wound up being the last fish of the day.
I had the lake to myself until just after 9:30, a couple of bankies showed up, and around 10:30 or so another boat showed up. Off the water at 1:30.
All in all a good day, I was suspecting it might be a slow day, at least I didn’t get skunked.
One thing I was not so surprised to see, the back end of the lake by the inlet was iced up for about the last 200 yards or so

It did wind up warming up a little, I even got to take off my heavy jacket for almost 20 min… *;D
There was a slight breeze *for most of the early morning, and then it calmed down real nice.
Sure beats working… *:)
