View Full Version : Week at Camanche

04-11-2010, 07:41 AM
Just got back from a week with the family, Easter break time. Stayed on the pond.
The trout pond was slow slow slow. Except for the 8#er. my youngest son caught. Thusday afternoon took him out for his first float tube fish experience. Three or four passes around the pond and not a single bit. He said he wanted to try one more trip around and 5 min later. Dad I think I got a bit. After 3 or 4 long runs. Fish is to the tube and I netted it for him.

We only caught two out of the pond all week. The last time they planted was the 18th of March. The second out of the pond was about 1.5#er caught by my oldest also float tubing Monday morning.

Frist time in 8 years we didn't get any from shore fishing.
Fished the lake Sunday mid morning and put 2 in the boat up in the narrows. 8' down orange grub. Several other take downs but now takers. Then headed in before the storm hit.
The rest of the week we fished out by Hat and the dam area. 4 to 5 each day nothing hot and heavy, except Thursday I landed this 5#er.http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/2807/0408000736a2.jpg (http://img66.imageshack.us/i/0408000736a2.jpg/)

Depths were 8' ,14' and 23'
Orange grubs and Nightcrawler behind silver dodger seemed to be our best set ups
Now time to clean gear and prep. for next weekend fest fishing. Praying for good weather.
