    Re: Unusual trout tactics?

    While fishing Fuller lake with my grand daughters, they noticed I was threading worms on a #2 hook and casting them out. Sooooooooo they said I should be using Gummy worms so I did and caught a nice 3lb german brown and a 14" RBTrout. Too funny!

    Look at that, still on sale:

    I caught 3 beautiful trout in the Moke my last trip. 2 on Pile Worms and 1 on cut anchovies. All on a 1/0 hook. I had no idea they were there, and when I caught the first one, I had no idea I would catch more on those baits.

    A bad fisherman will leave trash and take fish.

    Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish. -- Ovid

    Re: Unusual trout tactics?

    I knew there was some reason I've been saving this for the last 30 years or so...

    I was backpacking up the South Fork of the Stanislaus, up above Pinecrest. Saw some nice trout in the pools, but hadn't brought any fishing gear at all. But there was some nylon thread and a needle in my first-aid kit...
    The hardest part was getting a grasshopper to stay on the "hook". Well, now that I think about it maybe the hardest part was catching the hopper. Anyway it didn't take long to get a couple of small but meal-size fish, one for me and one for the very nice young woman I was trying to impress.
