    Poway today. Bite was on again off again. Got half on pregnant minnow mini-jig, half on pink trout magnet under a "bobber" or strike indicator (though I use mine as a fixed bobber :emoji_thinking: not a strike indicator).

    Managed to limit in a couple of hours once I found a good spot. Caught 2 other smallies that managed to

    "get off" of my barbless hook right near the shore. Fun day overall- got out done before the rain.

    Yeah I've got 3 in near perfect condition, and I do like them. Nearly all metal and built like little tanks, not like today. Plus these are the only small spinning reels that I know of that run counter-clockwise, which makes casting so much easier IMO. Hopefully you kept yours.

    Excellent. Trout jigs from shore seem to be the best method for these "tailwalker" trout. They hug the shore for days. Good job.

    Ive also got an old Mitchell that was given to me around 40 years ago . It’s left handed, I’m right handed still used the damn thing for 30 years holding it up on top of the rod and winding backwards. Very well made reels
