8lb Trout (Caught 4/19/2010)

This 27inch 8.2lb Trout was caught at Buena Vista while trolling from a personal inflatable pontoon boat with electric motor.  I was using a very small crank bait with white red and green colors no larger than my pinky.  Was never expecting to catch something so large out there and the trout net I brought along was just a joke, this fish couldn’t even fit halfway into it. 

Next trip... much BIGGER NET

This was my first time out on the water at Lake Evans, Buena Vista.  My brother was along with same rig setup.  I also caught two Catfish over 3.5lbs each on plastic crawdads with scent added.

Buena Vista super small catfish

This is one of the hundred or so micro cats I caught at Buena Vista.  I just thought it was very funny.  I didn't even know you could catch fish this small. I caught a few even smaller than this.  Amazing!!

Crappie Time, Bass Too!!


Crappie are pretty good everywhere. Bass are also on the chew. The crappie on the red tailgate are from Isabella yesterday. thas was my first trip to Isabella this year for crappie in the evening after work, and I caught five in an hour or so before it got too windy and cold for me. The other two crappie are from River Walk. The bigger bass is from BV. The little bass is from River Walk. No pics of the cats, but they too are on fire at BV.  These are only a fraction of the fish I have caught over the last week or so, I don't take nearly enough pictures.  The spring time fishing is on.  Get out and get some.

Buena Vista Trout Derby


The Derby was kind of a drag.  I did catch one 1.5 lb trout, and considering what was going on around me I was quite proud of it.  I think I may have seen a total of about ten fish caught, and only heard about a dozen or so more while I was walking around.  I think the winner was a 4.7 lb for the 14 and older group.  I am not sure about the younger groups.  It was still fun to have the chance to get a big trout, but I am sure many people were quite disappointed with the slow fishing.  Hopefully a better experience at the Lake Isabella Derby in March. 

See you there!!
