12/15

Took the walk down the trail and started with my jerkbait first thing in the morning, hit the rocky points for about an hour, was fishin a really slow stop and pause retrieve, and finally after a long pause BAM fish on! A little 2 pounder but it was the most action I've gotten in a couple months. Took a pic and let him go. Now I got my confidence boost and I'm pumped, I know I'm gonna get at least one more on my jerkbait. Very next cast, my ONLY jerkbait gets snagged on something and I break my line. So that little 2 pounder cost me $15. The sun came out and I tied on a jig and start pickin apart the coves. I walked down as far as the spillway and found a cove with some rocks along the edge. Made a cast toward the rocks and started hoppin my jig back. I was really focusing cause the f%^$in water skiers started coming out. I remember thinkin,"ok the water is cold and the bite is probably just gonna be a little tick, not a strong thump." Not a moment after I thought that....'tick' FISH ON! This time a nice healthy 3.5 pounder, took a couple pics and let her go. Best 4 hours on the water in a while.

If you went out last Saturday, I think I saw you guys. I had on a bright orange Giants beanie. I know I saw a couple guys fishing one of the coves closer to the picnic area while I was on the point across from it, then they took off up the trail.
