I didn't have real high hopes for this morning. I decided to re-fish the section stream I fished Friday since I saw a lot of fish, and tomorrow my buddy and I are headed to my favorite waters, so I didn't want to burn that out today. There had also been plenty of foot traffic over the holiday weekend judging by the trash (I forgot my plastic bag to pick up litter...must put more in the CRV), but man was I surprised. I landed 42 in 4 hours, including 2 large browns and a decent rainbow. Not bad for water I had already fished over.
First few of the day fell for the new UV spackle blades I made:
I caught a couple on other patterns, but the majority fell for the gold/white bead, though I did really well on a gold/red bead. probably equal number on that one. I didn't expect much, so I was trying out all my new blades.
