Anyone out yesterday?

It was supposed to be beautiful up here in north central PA but a cold front moved in with some wicked winds. Our first lake we got skunked but our second lake proved pretty good for some sub-keeper large mouth. We caught about 20 9"-10" large mouth and 3 keepers at 12", 14", and 15.5" respectively. Also caught a nice sized rainbow.

Believe it or not, where we had the luck was Lyman Lake. When I was a kid it was pretty much a trout and panfish lake. Since the dam was rebuilt, PFBC must have stocked with large and small mouth bass. Cowanesque skunked us. Usually does though, been having a hard time finding them since I moved back in 2011.

The past two summers I fished lyman lake a few times and actually did well on largemouth there. Most ones we caught weren't real big but would get a decent one every now and then. Never have caught any smallmouth there though.

What did you catch the rainbow on?? Just curious if it hit whatever you were using as bait for the bass....
As a matter of fact, we were trolling from the western end to the eastern end of the lake about 15 yards off the southern shore about 150 yards from the dam, I was using this for bass and caught the rainbow. Every time I've been on the lake I always catch trout in that area trolling with my white bead spinner.

BTW Fuda, the week prior to opening, the wife and I caught a few 8" - 10" smallies and some pretty decent sized bluegills.

Nice, I will be up over the Fourth of July holiday, I'm going to head over there and see what happens. I know I'm not going to catch any monsters but I just like going over there with some light tackle and whatever I catch I catch. Just looking to have some fun.
