    I went fishing Monday morning. Got to Lake Pyramid around 8:45. I know it's late but I thought I'd help the wife get the kids ready to take to the sitter so I can go fishin. I used nightcrawlers and anchovies. I took 2 poles. 1 for trout and the other for bass or catfish. 30 min. into fishin' I caught a small 6" striper. 20 min. later I caught another small 6" striper, then for 4 hours didn't catch anything. They were biting but I think they were too small for my size 6 hooks. Then around 1 when Im leaving I catch a nice 1lb -11/2 lb trout. When i'm bringing it on shore it falls off the hook. I thought I hooked it well. I even jerked the line twice to make sure it didn't fall off. Luck was just not on my side.

    On a side note, 4 Chinese guys show up and set up next to me. One of them was catching fish as if someone was setting it up on his line. He must have caught 6 14" or bigger stripers in 2 hours, and about another 6 small ones. He was using worms also but just had more luck I guess.

    Thinking about going tomorrow. We'll see what happens.

    I have had the greatest fishing of my life so far this year, hopefully it stays that way.

    Hey, at least you got to go.



    If it makes you feel any better, I went almost a year without any fish after I bought my boat, I thought I was cursed.
