    Hi everyone,

    First post ever, but just wanted to share this 10+ lbs rainbow Trout I caught at Lake Wohlford today. Caught on a Carolina rig with a white powerwork coated with Hookup baits garlic gel. So excited as I have never caught anything bigger than a 3 lber before. Also, I’ve gained a lot of knowledge on this website about Trout fishing and just wanted to say thanks to everyone for helping me catch this beast.

    Thanks, Jimmy

    Thanks everyone,

    From talking to a lot of the people fishing there, its a consensus that this year is much more difficult to catch trout than in years pass. Not sure why, but maybe they are stocking trout from a different plant? This is the first year I have fish for trout, so not sure why how the water level was in the past, but from what I've heard it's pretty low at Wohlford right now. One thing I do notice is that sitting(soaking) bait does not get bit to often, the bait or jig has to be moving to get bit. I have been fishing trout a lot this past month and Wohlford by far kicks out way better grade trouts than any other Lakes I've been fishing. That includes; Jennings, Dixon, Poway, and Santee. Good luck everyone.

    FYI, if you are planning to fish Wohlford, I get bites most often on white, Orange, and Chartreuse baits. 80% on white baits.

    Thanks, Jimmy
