And always good to see Mickey and Hammer, got to meet Fish for fun and his wife, Rongonefishing and dad and Rick and Anna. Someone reported on the radio that he had 4 in the boat and caught them on bacon and eggs ;D

    Re: New Melones 2-16

    Sorry for the late post. Just got in late last night. Only fished NM on Saturday. Rolled shad, pulled J7 rapallas, grubs, and half a baby nighcrawlers for no joy at the darn area. Trolled from the surface down to 50'.
    Then went and got lost, no lake map and my GPS had me trolling on hwy 49 when I was still on the lake, the boat was still wet anyhow... Ended up catching one 13" rainbow toplineing half a baby crawler on a #8 owner misquito hook. No flashers, blades, beads or spinners, just worm, and fished right in tight on the bank in the Angels Cove area... like I said, I got really lost looking for the 49 bridge. Luckily for me the nephew pulled out his IPhone, pulled up a map of the lake and I managed to find my way to the bridge without running into it or anything...
    It was great day weather-wise, and heard lots of sniffers on the radio. Nice to speak with you all. I'm a little shy on the radio, so didn't talk to many folks, sorry.
    Nobody sounded like they were having much luck... The fish must be further up river panning for gold or something ... Mark

    Well, we are heading up there Monday. Kathy is feeling well enough and want to go out out on the water. Don't expect to catch anything and it will be more to just get out for a while and play with some new products and enjoy the day.
    With the dismal reports maybe just trolling down the center of the lake is the better option? It worked last year, Who knows......
    Will have 5 rods out, 4 on DR and one on a side planer if the wind stays down.

    Well I didn't want to say anything but Mickey had told me if the bite was slow he wouldn't fish Sunday.....I guess he didn't share that with doc. ;)

    Note to self: A sneak mini fest is bad karma. :o

    That's just great.... Mickey got skunked and now he'll probably start drinking again. I can't wait for Pyramid Fest. He'll probably end up hanging around my camp bumming beers. [smiley=wileecoyote.gif]

    I blame it all on Mickey. Holding a sneak semi-fest is bad Karma.

    The skunk didn't stop at NM today. Fished with Martinez Frank and his wife and nobody got so much as a hit. SuperDave a bunch of lines in the water and managed 1 12" koke. That makes his boat the high liner for the trip. Most everybody else went home this morning or fished at Comanche.

    I blame it all on Mickey. Holding a sneak semi-fest is bad Karma. ;)
