I paid 17 dollars for it, and you can fish ponds and lakes with it, and the same limit as before. I think it'll be nice when applegate warms up and the bass start to bite, ill be able to fish for trout and bass at the same time at a great lake.

i fish them all if you get that pontoon we should go there when the fish are biting good the carp group up in that backpocket by the amphitheater in MASS numberes in the spring it is hard to fish from shore due to all the fincing on the good side but i take my pontoon tou there to fish it then i have full access to the whole thing

Have you tried Thomas Creek. It is off of I-5 about 45 mins or less from you. Take the Jefferson exit past Jefferson going out of the city on jeff-scio hgwy., take the second right after that bridge on to Kelly rd.. Kelly rd. will fork off after a mile or so just stick to left. After the fork you will see another bridge. Cross it and a couple hundred feet to the left you will see a gate and a place to park. Take the trail all the way to the creek where there is a rock bar. Fish from that point. I got there one day in the summer early before the swimmers came. Fished two hours and caught 18 smallies. The largest wasn't that big maybe 2.5 lb but I never caught so many fish before in soo little a time frame (except for bluegill) Funny cause you never hear of people talking about bass on the Thomas

That's good to know thanks for sharing. I work not too far from there and I need a good place to fish after work. What about Helms Reservoir? BTW welcome to the forum.
