20 March fishing report

Location: Possum Creek
Time: 4:45 pm to 7:40 pm, Saturday, 20 March 2010
Lures: Assorted crankbaits
Flies: Olive Beadhead Woolly Bugger, Size 10 Crystal streamer with beadchain eyes

This trip began at Argonne Lake, fishing crankbaits along the rocks. After a white Bagley crankbait was unsuccessful, a change was made to a crawdad pattern Bagley that was a bit smaller. After about twenty casts, working the lure in a sporadic retrieve, there was a strike, a short release of the reel's drag and a line that went slack. The knot was a perfectly good Palomar and the drag was set correctly so this outcome is puzzling. At this point, a switch was made to the fly rod with the olive Woolly Bugger, which has been highly successful here on previous trips. Such was not the case this time around, however. After spending about thirty minutes working the rocks, a decision was made to move over to the Pond 1 at about 5:45 pm.

Pond 1 was its usual early-season self. The dropoff was barren of all fish besides small minnows. There were about eight people fishing and not one of them caught any fish during the span of this report. Neither the size 10 streamer nor a small, flashy Norman crankbait drew any attention from the fish in this pond.

Score so far for 2010:

Fish 2
Examiner 3

Actions decided upon for the next trip include the purchase of more crawdad pattern crankbaits and some new line!
