Default Heading Home

Heading home from Clear Lake in a few minutes. No pics at this time because our fish were just average, 3 1/2 to 6#. The best day produced eight fish on minnows, senkos & flick shakes with three of them being 6# or close. The big event was hooking up with an enormously strong beast that actually broke or cut me off. The pic to the left is an 8# 11oz Clear Lake fish. There was no comparison between the two, so I'm certain that now I at least know what a double digit fish feels like. Next year - Next year.


We got home without any problems other than having a total blowout on the trailer, but that's another story. I thought I'd add a couple of pics just to show that we actually caught something. Grandma caught several with a new personal best of 4# 11oz. It was also her first experience at sight fishing and my first time in probably 20 years.



This one was fun because I spotted it from the dock on a nest not 20' from the ramp. I dropped a flick shake nearby and watched him swim over and pick it up. Pretty cool. Of course, right after the photo opts all fish were sent back to finish their business.

Come on Grandpa. You can't be breaking fish off like that. Heavier line and go later next year so I can go.
