    It could of been a big numbers day..but...! Got to the lake at 6:00, 5 trailers in the lot..Yahoo! Launched under clear skies, a west breeze, and 63 degree water! I got to my spot, pulled out my favorite Robo color, and noticed that in all my new packs..they've changed the color, way darker now! Not happy..made my first cast, fish on..made my second cast, fish on..I guess I'll forgive Robo! I landed 5 fish before 7:00, added 5 more before 8:00..thought I was on a big day like last monday! Wrong..the low pressure system came in, a cold fog moved in, along with a stronger breeze..and there goes the bite! I struggled to add 5 more fish in the next 4 hours! I tried different baits, different speeds, and different depths..nothing really excited the fish..or me! I think they were in a low pressure funk! I finished with 15, but it felt like it could of been better! What could of been..Oh well, there's always next week! 20210405_074738.jpg 20210405_084527.jpg 20210405_070310.jpg 20210405_075423.jpg 20210405_070254.jpg 20210405_074153.jpg 20210405_072244.jpg

    Wow...you were off to the races early(so the rainbow colored Robo is darker now? ha ha ...just kidding). Any start like that sounds like a lot of fun...... and then that dang pressure change. You still did a very nice job out there mcfish and you are no doubt looking forward to getting back out there next Monday. Thanks for the report and tight lines always!

    Great report and even better luck . It was only my second time fishing this lake but I had a ball. I got out there and the fog was definately hovering over the water. I didn't do as good as you and only managed a couple dinks but this time i got to explore the lake. Probably saw you or talked with you. I do remember your boat. Hope to see you out there .

    It can be a really fun lake when you figure it out. I know quite a few people that don't like fishing the lake because of the steepness of the shoreline..if you fish a lake like Otay, San V can be a bit of a puzzle! I've fished it a couple thousand times and it can still be a challenge. Summer can be fun with lots of different, patterns all at the same time!

    Hence the name Ramona Angler :emoji_slight_smile: To quote VinnyBass a stone's throw away from my home lake.
    Where will you start on the 19th? North end, Toll Road, Aqueduct, Island?

    Gentlemen, (with both your reputations) you do realize that by posting pictures of your boats you have now opened yourselves to the paparazzi and worse yet.....stalkers
