    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!
