I checked the weather forecast for today, yesterday afternoon and saw ideal conditions for trolling my Homemade Flatwing Flies. 2 mph winds and 40 degrees which ...more it never got above 34. water temperature was 38 degrees. The day started slowly until I hit the South shore where I usually have good luck. I had 1 hit on the 5 foot rod, a short strike. 5 more minutes into the troll I caught this 19 inch Landlocked Salmon. At first I thought it was a Brown Trout, after further research I am positive it's a Salmon. A female at that. I hooked one more after that and lost it due to being out of practice and trying to clear the other rod.
I first tried Spruce Run Reservoir because my cousin Mark still hasn't caught a Hybrid Striped Bass. Nothing there. We went to Round Valley Reservoir for 2 hours ...more and weren't disappointed. We landed a 17 inch Rainbow, an 18 inch Laker and my first ever Tiger Trout. Just shy of 16 inches he was released back to grow bigger.
Please to all my fishing buddies and friends. I am begging for help. My younger brother had his 2nd stroke. He can not walk can not talk. I took 4 days off from ...more my busy schedule to drive to Florida and build him a ramp so he can get in and out of his house. His wife only makes 10 bucks an hour. They're about to be homeless because disability is taking their sweet role time. My brother has worked his butt of all of his life. Never used alcohol, drugs or even cigarettes. Diabetes is killing him slowly. So please is you could spare $10 or $20, we would appreciate it. If you can afford more that's even better. I put my bills aside and don't care about my credit score to build his ramp.
