With all the rain and cold weather, the lakes are high and dirty! No lake fishing until it warms up and clears up, which should be soon!
That is if it doesn't rain for awhile!
Went to Montauk, to try my luck at catching some rainbow, this morning and low and behold it was raining and cold! It wasn't raining hard , just a steady drizzle. One thing about them rainbows the rain and cold doesn't seem to bother them too much.
The branch was at a good flow and fairly clear, kind of surprising with all the rain as of late! The horn went off and the bite was on and it took a whole hour for me to catch my 4 rainbows!
I caught 13 fish and kept 4 real nice bows, between 15 and 17 inches long! My friend Jerry went along and he caught 4 bows of which 2 of them made the lunker board! He caught a 5lb bow and a 4.75 bow! Wow he put it on me this time!
That's one thing about trout, they don't seem to mind cold, and wet weather, near as much as I do. It was just a little uncomfortable for about 45 minutes or so and then it warmed up and quit raining, that is when we got in the truck and rolled up the window, and turned on the heat! Boy, that sure felt good!
I was using "Velveeta" cheese and Jerry was using some kind of homemade bait that he makes, seemed to be the trick today! I am going to have to sneak around and find out his recipe. He caught some really nice ones! Some fishing buddy, wouldn't even share his bait with me! I won't forget that for a long time. He knows I will get even, that's part of the game we have!
I love to catch them rainbows on my ultra lite! It is quite a challenge trying to catch a big rainbow on 2lb test! It is even a greater challenge trying to tie on those miniature treble hooks! I can't even see the holes, let alone see to tie the 2 lb test line.
So until next time, keep your lines tight and your hooks wet! See ya out there! Good luck and lots of success on your next trip!
