Fished Friday afternoon in Hyde Co in a spot that has produced all summer and recently. Got skunked for first time all year, but was stubbornly committed to throwing topwater only. Had 5 bites....pulled off 2, missed 3.
Fished in Hyde Co again Saturday. We caught 30 trout w only 5 being short, 4 stripers, 1 puppy drum....by noon. Caught 29/30 trout on 17’s....1/30 on top.
They were hitting swimming plastics hard in Dawsons Creek yesterday. A friend asked me to go but I had to go to PT. He brought me 3 really nice keepers, one of which was turned into supper last night. Mighty good eatin'......
Some whoppers have been caught over the last 10 days. Hearing good reports including a lot of 22-24" fish, and several fish in the 26-29" range. Going to take the day off tomorrow and see if I can get on 'em. Going to be a beautiful day....light NE breeze, 70*, mostly sunny.....doesn't get much better.
Quality over quantity fishing this morning. 7 trout, 2 stripers. 4 came on topwater. All were nice fat fish, including my nephew’s personal best 25-1/2” trout......updated after weighing on official scale....5.2 lbs. Would have preferred to release her, but she swallowed the lure so deep that the surgical procedure for hook removal didn’t end well for her.
^^ dang nice speck right there.
We fished sunday and caught our best fish on mr's. Water is still a little warm and the fish were not exactly where they typically are this time of year. Few more cold snaps and it should start getting right
Went solo Saturday morning. Couldn't decide if I wanted to deer hunt or trout fish so made the call when I woke up. LOL... Caught 33 trout, 11 fish that were keeper size. Biggest fish was 20 1/2". Fun morning, done by lunch.
Talked my son into going Sunday morning and the bite was slower, but the fish quality overall was much better. We ended up catching 21 Trout and 1 Flounder. Biggest fish was a nice pair of 20"ers.
Not much to it.
Fish, filleted or headed scaled and gutted, little butter, potatoes, onions, a can of whole peeled tomatoes, and what ever other veggies you want to add. Top with 3 or 4 strips of bacon and a little water added to keep it from drying out, season to taste. Cook for 45 minutes to an hour on 375° covered in foil. Last 10 minutes cook on broil to crisp the bacon and add shredded cheese when it comes out of the oven.
