View Full Version : Lake Amador - 5/19

My gf and I decided to hit up Lake Amador today, since my previous outing was pretty good and wanted to take her there since she was not able to go. We were not sure what to expect in the crowds on the weekend, so we left SF at 3:30am and got to the lake around 5:30am. We got our lines in just before 6:00am and it was pretty slow for us.

My gf got the first bite and she landed a nice Cutbow that was 4 pounds around 7:00am. This ended up to be the biggest fish of the day.

I think it was about 7:30-8:00am when I first got my bite and I landed a nice Cutbow that was a couple ounces lighter than my gf's fish.

Here is my gf with 3 nice size Cutbows that she landed roughly in less than an hour. It turned on for her around 2:00-3:00pm.

We ended the day with our limit, but it took us all day. We should of been done a little earlier, but I had a few mishaps with the line breaking on me. I think I missed a hog!!!! I was fighting a fish and it felt like a log moving sideways. Peeling line with several runs and my leader line breaks! I can't believe that happened to me, since I am usually pretty good at checking the line after a catch. O' well, I guess it was not meant to be. Hot bait was Rainbow Glitter Garlic Powerbait dipped in Smelly Jelly Craw/Anise Scent.

Here are all our Cutbows at the fishing cleaning station.
