3 Generations (12/16)
« on: December 19, 2017, 11:31:20 AM »
It was pretty windy and bumpy out on the big pond this saturday, so I took my Mom and Daughter out to the little pond to try and get in some trout fishing.

It was a late start for me, but an early one for my mom and daughter.  It was also supposed to rain, so I brought 2 garbage bags to cut out as ponchos if it did decide to rain.  lol

It was perfect trout weather out there!

A little cruise around the lake to see if I could meter any biomass of them.

We stop at all of the go to spots, but the girls have no patience.  I told them to leave the rods in the holder and I'll give them another one to cast and try to catch a trout on artificial bait, but nope.  They couldn't leave anything alone.  lol

Hannah was helping with the night crawlers.

It turned into a lot of trolling since they didn't like staying still for more than 10 minutes.

No bites and no fish.  Only saw one small trout caught and lost all day.  I did see a Game Warden at the ramp which is the first time in 5 years that I've seen one at Jennings and checking the licenses!

We spent 4 hours trolling and baiting different sections of the lake before calling it quits.  If anything, It was a fun time with family out on the water!

Talked to some guys up top that had limits in an hour last week and not a single bite this week.  Soon as I saw the trout plant schedule, I realized why.

Thanks for reading.

You can't catch them from your computer chair.

Sounds like a great day despite the lack of fish!
Great pictures Tom!
