Me and my buddy Jacob hit Leaburg.
We both got out limits-Jacob landed two 14" rainbows.
A very fun day!

That sounds great! How were you fishing for them and what time of day?

We was there from 8 to 2'oclock.
We got them using worms and power bait-about half and half.
We had my boat so we fish from the dam up to the handicap dock and back down to the dam.

Nice man glad you are back in action. I notice you have been just trolling bait without anything else just bait. hows that working out for you other than the obvious?

It is working great-I change my gear over to light trolling rigs-6 lb test is the heaviest line that I use now.
Catching a 12 inch rainbow is a lot funner now then catching a 12 inch rainbow and the weight of ford fender.
If I need to go deeper I use a light weight Kokanee Trolls flasher or just the down rigger.
My Pinnacle Inertia Finesse baitcasting reel has 6 lb line on a 7 foot light rod and my Shakespeare® Agility Casting Reel is set up with 4 lb lb on a 7 foot light rod. It is very nice just to feel the fish and not the gear.

Wait until you hit a nice fat 18" native 100 feet from your boat-you will have a new bling! :)
