Let me say Suson was busier than Black Friday
No joke people every where! Everyone was catfishing or trout fishing. So I could move around a lot to work the lakes which sucked.
We took the misses 8 year old boy and I had to teach him some fishing etiquette
As his like 2nd cast was right over my line
Got him going and he was done with in a half hour.
I started with a Lunker Hunt jerk bait. Retrieved it a few different ways....Started with a slow retrieve, then retrieve and pause and then a twitch twitch pause.
I moved on to a texas rig with 10' black/blue worm with curl tail, then a 6th Sense S glide, then a underspin (which got hung up and I lost) and then a swimbait.
Not a bite or a follower even. This time around I didn't see any fish near the banks and the entire time I was there I saw only 1 trout caught about 12 inches.
Pretty frustrating outing! We moved lakes at one point and as I am casting a family of 9 walk up behind me and then just stop to talk with their 7 kids
At this point I was frustrated and I said let's go
It sucks being limited to lakes like this as they are convenient. I also am learning as I go you can say with what to throw and the different seasons.
Just gonna chalk this skunk up as a learning experience and on to the next one.
Some pictures for you as I can't make a post with out any
