Skunk is OFF!
Lake Del Valle - Livermore, CA 4-28-12 - Since it's not a local lake, I will post here.
Rented a boat today and finally got off the bank and caught a couple of fish!
Fish are in pre-spawn and we were able to pick off a couple of males out of about 15 that we saw. Water visibility was only 12-15 feet, that's all. Temps in the low 50's and was a BEAUTIFUL day to be on the water. We dicked with each fish for at least 15-20 minutes each where most would only pick up the end of the baits or just slap at em. REALLY tried to get a couple of smallies I saw for Karen but to no avail.
We did see a fat girl that was at worst a heavy 8 lber. She wouldn't sit in a spot for more than a couple of seconds or so and then run deep. We kept going back in hopes of catching her off guard with a jig, senko or brush hog. She turned on it a couple of times but that was it.
Will add a few spinnerbaits and a few more jigs to my arsenal for the next trip.
Tuckered out on a previous trip.
Got it made!

Thanks for the report and glad you are out fishing."There is only one thing wrong with a fishing day--its staggering brevity. If a man spent all his days fishing, life would seem to be a swift dream." Zane Grey
