    If this post seems a little disjointed, then it accurately reflects my trip to San V this morning. It was first time this year to make the 100 mile round trip down there. On the way down I decided good or bad, it might be a good idea to post about it. When you are my age people begin to wonder if they haven't heard from you in a while. My first priority this morning was to catch a few redear or bluegill, but was open to anything that might be biting. It has been few days since anyone posted in the Panfish Forum, so it seemed like a good place to put it unless I really hit a home run, and then I would put it in the Reports Forum. Obviously no home run, so here goes.

    I gave the early birds and chance to clear the ramp and launched about 6:45. It was overcast and cool early, and warmed to about 70° by the time I came in about noon. Water temp was 65° early, warming to about 67° later. I never really found a pattern for the bass. They were all over the place, from 30 feet to right on the bank (in transition?). No bluegill today, but the redear seem to be zoned in on 23 feet. Here are some photos with the grand finale being the ice chest shot for the three redear I kept. I made sure to only keep ones with red ears, so fisheromen could properly identify them. All were males.

    Great job, great pics and nice report from you.
    Tight lines always!
    I guess I need to go into the panfish area more often to see how you are doing... :)

    Excellent hook ups and report......It looks like it was worth the 100 miles round trip

    Thanks, Roy. All the redear I caught were about the same size. Nice fish for sure, but not the jumbo variety that I made the trip for. With the water level down so far, some of the areas that were good to me the past couple of years did not produce Monday. It will get better soon for both the redear and bluegill.

    I'm planning another family trip here this year.

    Hopefully everything will work out this time and not like last year. I had that rental boat fiasco and had to turn around and go up to Cuyamaca instead.

    I'll be looking for those JUMBOS!
