Bottoms Road - 8-19-2018

Post by SRAces » Mon Aug 20, 2018 12:12 pm

Met up with Sven at first light to fish Bottoms Road. The water clarity was improved some over the last trip 2 weeks earlier. Sven caught 2 nice reds and kept one for the dinner table. I caught 5 reds and 1 trout. The trout was the first fish of the day. I thought it was a red initially the way it ran, but was pleased to see it was a trout pulling hard like a red. 3 of my reds were slot but under 20 inches so no pictures of those...lol! All released to get bigger!

A great half day on the water! :D

Thanks for the report. Hopefully heading there tomorrow.
Good enough is good enough. Going the extra mile leads to exhaustion.

Good looking fish, Steve. That's a talent, to be able to dig them out like that on these extra hot days. Good going! Somehow, my dinner invitation to Sven's house must have been lost in the mail.

I fished the Compass the previous day in a local small freshwater tournament. Got skunked...lol! Wanted a more comfortable seat to relax in after doing a lot of paddling in a lily pad lake the previous day. So the PA was the choice of the day. Sven has a PA and recently bought a Compass. He took his PA as well. We thought that was a funny coincidence. :wink:
