It was a bluebird extra warm morning. I was not expecting to get a walleye after 8:00. But, with the sun beating down like it were a July day, I stuck a really nice 'eye on yellow and brown clouser. Sweet!
One of these days I'll break that magic 30. Mid afternoon I drove my mom partway to the store. Only part way because I had to get out to fish a stretch of river I had never wet a line in before. Often these kinds of things just don't pay of, but this time I was rewarded with probably one of the best 45 minute trout trips I've ever had. Fishing a Sexy Walt's Humphrey style I over 30 trout in just one run. It was crazy. They were all stocked fish but the average size was not bad. I got two rainbows that were 18 inches. They also fought extremely well, a few taking lots of line and jumping like crazy. It was just about the most fun you could have with stocked trout and nymphs.
And what's a day with a whole bunch of variety without some evening saltwater action. I joined Dan and two of his friends to look for some stripers, and though the fishing was super weird we did find a handful of stripers. I caught one hickory shad as well.
That was my day yesterday... busy and with lots of variety. Today I fished only for a little while and it wasn't very good. My only skunk day so far this spring.
