    UVR 2-15-08 Report

    Fished UVR today with Willbilly. *
    Road conditions were clear. *However there was patchy ice on many of the turns that could be hazardous. *4-wheel drives are a must. *Ramp by the dam is open, but minimal parking area. *Snow drifts 5-6 feet. *We were the only boat on the lake, which was a good thing since there wasn't anymore room for parking another rig.
    Weather and scenery was beautiful. *Water temp. was 39-40 degrees. *The winds were light.
    We were on the water before the sun came up. *Today was the day to test the new Rainbow UV Pro Glow Double Flutter. *This lure was on Willbilly's rod, which produced 2 very nice fish. *On my rod I was trolling one of our new large Crush Glow dodger, trailing a frozen herring. *This produce 2 more nice fish.
    Total fish in the boat and released was 5. *Boat speed 0.9-1.5 mph. *Depths 65-85 ft. *Using pro cure krill and carpspit gels. *
    The fish were all thick and fiesty fish. *No trophies today but we will be back at it again on Monday.
    Thanks to Willbilly for taking me in his beautiful new boat!! ;D ;D
    Just a note: *Remember, catch and release, to help protect our fisheries for the future.

    MM-It was great getting back out. It's been great to be able to get out with Willbilly since my boat has been in the shop. But we will get it back tomorrow, then got to get it on the new trailer, then I'll be back out on the water Monday.

    Have you ever seen chubbier Macks look at the shape guys

    You can’t tell by the photo but Kens fish is about 3-4 pounds larger than mine.

    Good shot of the lateral line UV stripe *on the Pro Glow Double Flutter *What was the name of it again CRS???LOL

    For *you sniffers that don’t know Ken has come up with a system of combining layers of paint on his gear with over layers of small amounts of Glow with UV overlay. In his/our testing last year we found that with no doubts there is something to it when it comes to catching fish.

    Good stuff. Very nice fish. You got to hit that place between storms.

    Good job on breaking your new boat in with style 8-) I think I will have to pick up some of those lures, they would work great at pyramid as well in those colors ;)

    Mongo,
    The dfs have worked very well at pyramid in the past. especially the nickel w/blue tape.
    while working on this new pattern, pyramid was in the back of my mind. it is a more natural looking rainbow pattern. coated with triple glow paint and a red uv lateral line. Even though it is has only been proven on the macks it should be great at pyramid.
