Immediate Catch and Release
June 9, 2013
Hello from Your Lake Jennings:
Fishing was thru the roof!!!!!! Unfortunately catching was stuck in the basement. The anglers that took home fish stopped at Vons on the way home! That is not to say that everyone got skunked. Someone always gets lucky or figures it out. The reason catching was soooo poor: The winter solstice just occurred. The moon was full last night. An incoming cold front rolled in. The moon was dark last night. I brought the wrong bait.
Best Cat Spots:
The Coves and Bird Trees.
Best Cat Bait:
Nightcrawlers and Mackerel.
Best Bass Spots:
Points in 25’ to 30’ of water and the riprap bordering the launch ramp and Eagle Point. See GPS for that spot.
Best Bass Lures/Bait:
First Spro frog of the season.
Best Trout Spots:
None. A measly few were caught by some scouts on the fishing floats.
We just shot our fish with tetanus vaccine. Hopefully that will cure the lockjaw.
Wipers: White Bass / Striped Bass Hybrid Stocking has been postponed. Apparently our supplier thought since he had an importation permit from DFG that a stocking permit is a slam dunk. DFG thought differently. We are hopefull that they will allow this experiment. We will keep you posted.
