Yesterday I purchased myself a brand new toy, a Kodak Playsport camcorder, apparently its waterproof, shockproof and dust proof, and for 80 dollars at Best Buy it was a pretty sweet deal. Then today my mom got her fishing license and in the afternoon we decided to fish the local trout pond, Junction City Pond. This pond is stocked regularly with trout and has a ton of bank access, also it’s only about five miles from the town of Eugene, which is very convenient! When we got there the banks were lined with powerbait chuckers and a few fly fishermen. I brought my Pontoon so i could troll a woolly bugger, which always works for stocked places and even at places that arnt stocked. I dont know how to fly fish yet, but i still enjoy trolling flies on my ultra light spinning set up. On this day I managed to bring two stockers to the boat, but i had countless bites that didnt stick. The bankies from what i seen didnt have much luck, and my step dad and mother were both skunked using night crawlers on the bottom and under a bobber. We werent there for too long but still had a good time.
I filmed a few clips of the Ospreys and also one of the pond. I didnt edit the clip or anything just tossed them up as is. Ill be getting a hat mount soon so ill be getting action shots and all that cool stuff! Didnt video the fish they were your ordinary stocked rainbow trout. But since a post isnt complete with out some fish porn ill add a picture of a 3lb bass I caught earlier in the week at private pond my friend Dave has in his back yard!
As always tight lines! And Thanks for reading!
Tuesday I fished Medco Pond for the third time, and had the best luck so far. I didnt catch any warm water fish like i did the first time out there, but i caught plenty of trout. I estimate i caught about 30 trout in the 3 hours i was there, all but one came on a holographic Panther Martin spinner size 6 i think, the paint is coming off of it but its green and pink and the blade is like a rainbow trout. The couple next to me were catching them on worms and powerbait under bobbers and they seemed to be doing well. I brought the first one in on the second or third cast which is always nice. I also caught a couple while the spinner was falling before i could even retrieve it. The weird thing that day was the ospreys couldnt seem to catch the fish very well, i think i seen them come up with a fish once, and they were trying quite often. Thanks for stopping by my little blog 🙂 Tight lines to all my fishermen/women out there.
Lately iv noticed birds have shown up in my blog along with fish lol. The guy fishing near me thought the birds were owls LOL i had to inform him that they were Ospreys 😀 The date is still messed up on the camera i promise u these were taken yesterday not two years ago haha.
