Melones loss of Focus


Left the house at 5 for a solo Melo run.

IMG_5127Very busy at the ramp. Heavy overcast no wind and not too cold. I decided to head all the way up the river arm.

IMG_5149Witnessed an aerial show with 5 baldys at play. Frustrated I can’t shoot these birds in focus!

Fishing was slow but I put a few on the boat like this. Firetiger Rapala and Seps dodger with white excel spoon was what they wanted.

  1. Good job Patrick. Love the pics. I’m curious. Would you have a pic or two of the back of Mormon? I have hiked back there before when the lake was higher but with it low I don’t know how steep the banks are. Cheers,

    • No recent pics of the end of the arm. Was full of bass boats back there. No real problem with the banks. I tied up to a tree 50 yards from where the creek comes in and tossed a gold kastmaster for zippo
