    Re: Camanche 2/10 Tough!!!

    Oh yeah, here's a nice 6 lb buck I kept for me and my cat to chow down on. We both love grubbin' Steelies... Will be back out next Friday if the storm passes & not too muddy.

    Re: Camanche 2/10 Tough!!!

    Thanks for the Comanche post. I will be going there the Pres-Day weekend for 2 full days of fishing. Got plenty of grubs & plan on using them.
    Sorry about the job loss, but kill some time fishing between job-hunting. You can only look for a job 3-5 hrs a day. Fish the rest. I'm a machinist & feel lucky evey week.
    Nailed 2 Steelys today on the American (both hatchery 4& 6 lbs) kept 1 for the grill... Fish on fellas... SD

    Robbie,
    Thanks for the post and pixs - always a pleasure to read your reports. Very sorry about you being laid-off, it has happened to me 4 times, but everytime things were better in my new job. Get the faith, it will work out for the good. You could be Fishing guide with all your knowledge and expertize. I'd give that a try. Jeff

    buckman78: You won't mark a lot of Trout right now. Cause they are on the surface. Most marks down are going to be Bass. But, i have heard of some guys catching trout down to 20'. When it get flat mirror calm, try downrigging between 4' to 15'. If you have planer boards, get them a ways from the boat. That will help too... Good Luck on your next adventure!!!

    sorry about your job, and yeah fishin was a little rough,
    was out at camanche on wednesday and it was hard day fishin. launched out of north shore and just started trolling out of the bouys. came around the first corner and fish on. it fought really good, brought it in and it was a fatty small mouth. we guestimated caught that on a trolled fire tiger rapala.
    closer to the island my buddy landed two trout between 10am and 11am. one on the fire tiger and another on a grub.
    missed around 10 all day. tried all different color grubs, but orange and fire tiger had the most hits.
    tried the narrows after 130, called it a day at 3.
    tried my new fish finder, nothing fancy, but thought i would have marked a lot more fish than i did. the majority of the marked fish were on the bottom. not sure if it was accurate though.

    RideNfish: Here is what has been my best grub at Camanche... It's Call "Action Tails" they are 3". They also have a lot of great colors that have worked too!!! The Rapala is also one of my Favorites. GFR - Brown Trout - Hot Steel - Blk/Gld Hope this helps. You can get the Grubs at Cabelas... Will add link...

    Robbie.
    So sorry to hear about the job loss.
    I consider myself lucky to still have mine and know that the fish gods will smile on you.
    Camanche seems to be getting tougher to get the fish.I will probly hit Camanche a few more times this year then try Pardee.
    Don't get bummed out,keep the lines in the water.
    TT

    Re: Camanche 2/10 Tough!!!

    Nice report! Glad you toughed it out for a few fish.

    Sorry about your unemploy, I happen to be there too. Never thought I would be in this situation.

    Did you see any shore fishing action as you trolled around? I am going there Friday (tomorrow) with my dad and I think we are hitting south shore (not the pond). I wish I had some boat money so I can troll grubs and rapalas like you guys Any chance someone could tell me what grubs you use? Or better yet a pic maybe.

    Cheers and hope to see some fellow sniffers on the banks and lake!
