Randy and I left Ptown 6 AM Thursday and we were launching from Bidwell 3 hrs later. We headed up to some walls on the middle fork. It was on.
7 ft spinning rods, 6-8 lb test mono, spring/clip on balsa bobbers above a barrel swivel. 4-6 feet of 6 lb floro leader attached to a crappie jig head.
SO much fun. We had a few smallmouth mixed in but no kokes or trout going on the jig this year. Some action on carolina rigged morning dawn robo worms and spinnerbaits but when the bobber bite is on, I can’t resist and become a kid again for a few hours. Wildife was plentiful as usual with deer, otters, quackers, bald eagles, and Osprey competing for our attention.
Today I am sore head to toe but sitting here wishing I could go back next weekend. Talked to many at the ramp who described a tough bite. Yea, because they bounce a senko off the wall hop it once and then find themselves in 40 feet of water. I try not to mention back at the ramp that a 100 fish day is average for us there because no one would believe it.
