San Luis & Forebay 11/8

Started out at San Luis at 6:30am out of Basalt and went to a cove close by the ramp and seen lots of birds and some fish busting.First cast I get drilled and miss it. About 15 mins later my dad hooks up but loses it next to the boat. Then my dad sticks another one on a rattle trap and lands it, 6lber on the boat. Then we see some fish busting in a pocket and I make a cast then Sergio makes a cast and bam Sergio Hooks up. Lands it and its a nice 25". Fished for a couple more hours and got nothing. Then we decided to head to the Forebay and started at around 9:30-10am. Didn't get anything for a couiple of hous no activity nothing. So we were fan casting on a flat I was still skunked and was starting to get worried. Throwing a River 2 Sea Bottom Walker bam stick one and it started pulling some drag and fight it for about a minute and finally get it on the boat, a 22"er. Almost back to back cast Sergio sticks one not a keeper but still finally signs of life. I ended up getting one more dink and Sergio got about 3 more.All but one on Swimbaits. Also got two of the fish caught on film.
First one is Sergio sticking the 24" at San Luis.

Second one is me bringing in the 22" at the Forebay.
