    Later during lowtide the bite picked up. Started off with a legal.

    Then immediately after I’m reeling my bait in about 4ft of water and I get a bite that kinda swims with the bait. I set the hook hard and it pulled down harder and and somehow bent and hurt my pinky. It ripped drag on grass bass drag hard and I thought it was a MOAB. Brought it in to find out it was a corbina!

    My overall Pb including ones I’ve caught on bait. Kept fishing and caught a Hali but it slowed down. I changed spots and found a bunch of biting bass mostly all small.

    Stopped at Donnor Lake on the way over to Reno for 30 minutes and it was pretty cold and windy. I was forming an icicle on my rod tip. Tried the Zman slim swim first for a short hookup. Then switched to a kastmaster and then stuck one after it hit it 2X.
    Tiny Trout.

    12/30/2018 - 12/31/2018 Pyramid Lake Nv
    Got out a little late for the sunrise bite. But made it out there at around 7:45.

    C9803A77-4D0D-4275-A4D3-9536E9C5F20D.jpeg C27CE6C8-540E-4700-B5C1-C68EBB03AF4B.jpeg Fished with a bunch of different baits but wasn’t getting anything.
    Found myself at a different spot throwing the pointer with barbless hooks. Spent a couple hours throwing it. Out Of the blue a nice cutthroat chases it following it just like a vina. It chased it all the way to the rock I was standing on then it turned away. I thought I missed my chance. Swam back into the deep slowly. Kept casting and about 5 minutes later I get a bite. I see it’s mouth open up. I got em! Reel it in nice and carefully and manage to walk him to the beach and land him in the net! I turn the net upside down and get my tape and phone out. Then when I grab the net it thrashes and gets away... Noooo!
    I fished the rest of the day for nothing. I did see the fly fisherman getting some but not as big as the one I lost.
    After coming back I knew I had to get back out there. Got out there earlier and tried to get the rock the fly fisherman were on. I got there at 6:00 and saw another truck there. I walk down to the rock and there is a net sitting on the rock. I climb up the rock and a guy gets out of the truck and says he was there since 4:00. I guess you can reserve a spot by leaving something there. So I didn’t try causing a problem so I go to the other rock. They didn’t start fishing for another 30 minutes... stupid. Fished for hours trying different baits nothing... it was cold like 20mph winds and 15 degrees at its worst. I had to go warm up in the car a couple times. At around 2:00 the entitled fly fishermen finally leave thier rock. At one time during the day there was 6 of them on it but I guess I’m not allowed.
    Anyway I changed to a blue silver 3/8oz kastmaster that I put a little ripped piece of white plastic worm on a hook as a trailer.
    9F73FE0B-51DC-4325-AEFD-F2AB42E194C8.png
    Kept casting try different depths... Then I get a little bumb and I thought it was the bottom. Then it hits again then boom my rods bending and I got em! I fight him in on the rock and it was probably minute fight and 3 minutes trying to net him. Finally get him in the net and it’s over 24” so I’m keeping him. Measure him out and take pictures.

    I got soaked when I landed it because of the waves.

    Fillet him up.

    Fished three different spots along the California aqua duct on the way back from Reno. Didn’t catch nothing. I did see some other lure fishermen but they said it was slow this time of the year. Only threw the pointer.

    Threw the pointer that still had barbless hooks... Going for the big fish for first fish of the year. After about 30 mins. I watch my bait get hit and set the hook and I had a nice 24”+ Hali on! It ripped drag and I kept nice stiff pressure on it knowing I had barbless hooks. It’s slowly coming towards me and it does a couple head shakes. The it does a small shake just below the surface and spits the barbless pointer at me... Nooooo!!!
    Fuuuuuuuu!
    ...
    Shake it off and stopped crying and kept throwing it for nothing.
    Switched spots and switched to t-rig zman. Got my first fish off the year.
    A Hali!
    E84C7BB8-37D0-4992-BC8B-549A2B4EE0B5.jpeg
    Last year my first fish was an average spotty and had a pretty decent year. Now since I missed a legal Hali and landed a short one it should be a good year. With some good fish that get away lol.
    Anyway at the different spot I got a bass.
    6E493BDD-42BF-47D1-880C-92AD01A2A469.jpeg
    Not much action. Switched spots again. Got a Hali on the barbed hook.
    54EF801A-282C-44C8-8A8D-5DE3D8FB22A1.jpeg
    Then started to get tons of bumps. I thought it was vina until it happened every cast. Finally hooked the culprit

    A mullet on plastic. First one I’ve got that I didn’t purposely snag. Kept getting tons of bumps. So what did do. I broke out the snagging hook. And I snagged one.

    Didn’t get any more mullet.
    Switched spots and went for bass.
    Got 10. Tons of claw bites. They broke it.

    Went night bass fishing. Caught at least 8.
    11EE7F45-8C26-4525-AF8F-560C8ED6528F.jpeg
    Forgot if I didn’t take pictures of some or not.
    Anyway I guess I forgot my tape but I measured it against a piling. Haven’t measured the piling yet so not positive it’s legal yet. That would be first legal of the year.

    The only reason I saw it is because all the other pieces of floating eel grass was floating by and one was going against the current. It WAS NOT eelgrass. I have caught them before. And seen a bird have a tough time eating one and seen a spotty have one in its gullet.

    And a Hali
    AB2E0A2B-B082-450A-93DC-0DD2E78E48CB.jpeg
    Then I keep fishing and I finally get the big bite I have been waiting for. I struggle to pick it up out of the heavy structure. I try just straight winding my Manage to flip it over. It’s a big sandbass. Wish it was a spotty lol.

    Then i didn’t get any more. I tried for an hour afterwards to try to get a limit but just no more big bites. I did get a couple average spotties though.

    I’m pretty sure this day I didn’t take pics for some reason. I think I caught about 15. Anyway the bite for me has been happening at night. Fished where I got the sandbass of coarse. And get a bite high up on the drop. Fight it in a and find a calico?!

    Fished again and I don’t think I took pics of all the fish. I only took pics of 4 spotties.

    Then I get another big bite. Then it gets stuck on the way up for a second and then it comes unstuck. And I found another legal sandy with another baitsoakers rig tangled on my line. It wasn’t in the Sandies mouth though.

    It must have been what I got stuck on while reeling it in.
    Then shortly afterwards called it a night again.
    Also my Zman 5” paddlerz have been getting destroyed every night for a while. So many little bass biting the paddle part of the tail off. And I’m setting the hook hard because it may be the big one.
    Final Count:
    At least 4 Spotties
    1 legal sandy
