    I dusted off my float tube and made a run to Otay. I went out on the tube so I can make sure its ready for Barrett but boy was I in for a day.
    Total over 25
    Biggest maybe 3.5 pounds (maybe a bit bigger)
    I put together all my learnings from Otay Michael and Linebig. (Thanks Gentlemen)
    Started and stayed in Harveys.
    Got in the water about 7a fished till about 1
    I was only in the water for about 5 min before I got my first fish. TR worm pitched up close to the bank. (Thanks Linebig)
    From then I had a steady picking.
    Approximate numbers
    Spinner bait 5
    TR worm 10
    Jerk bait 5 (Otay Mike Special)
    Drop Shot 5
    My biggest came off the DS in the back hugged up against the sticks.
    It was a packed lake and everyone was pulling in fish.
    The highlight of the day came when a boy (maybe 6) started screaming to his dad. I GOT ONE!! I GOT ONE..
    I still feel that way when I get a hookup. IMG_3494.JPG IMG_3495 2.JPG IMG_3496 2.JPG IMG_3497 2.JPG IMG_3498 2.JPG

    Nice man! Disregard my question in the urination tube post. I had a big welding job that I have to get wrapped up or else I would have been there, fished cap in the tube Monday, it’s on fire too with some quality fish. Let’s hit somewhere quick
