Hit the trestles around 7:30 this morning to try out the trout troll. I had never done this before, so expectations were pretty low.
One of us was using a 3/8oz jighead and the other was using a double 3/8oz rig in an attempt to mimick the 3/4oz jigs that seems to be working well. We both got bites within about 50 yards of our first pass (we both lost them as well). After a bit of a slow period we boated 3-4 in a row with one of them being a little over 20″ and the others were at least 15-16″.
We then went for about an hour with no bites. From then on out it was fairly steady at about a fish every 5-10 minutes. We finished up with 14 trout, all of which were nice sized.
Water conditions were pretty decent, 58 degrees on average and fairly clear. Water was moving towards the west most of the morning. Most fish were caught on the west side of the trestles about 50 yards from the pilings, although a couple were right up against them as well.
Several boats out and about, and it seemed like most people were catching a few but nowhere near limits. Turned out to be a great day on the water.
