Pinewood 4/9/07

I went to Pinewood yesterday 4/9/07 and landed 3 trout 2 Cutbows and 1 Rainbow (had a bunch of bites that i wasn't paying good enough attention for and they got off). 1Cutbow and 1 Rainbow were a little over 14 inches and the other was exactly 12. All in all was a pretty slow day but it was very peaceful there with elk all around (minus the intrusions of some fisherman who were loud and another pair who were throwing rocks into the water as they walked around the lake). Tried for tigers for awhile without any luck. The larger cutbow was caught on a spinnerbait, and the other were caught on some of my secret bait (sorry but not giving that up). I didn't have any luck with orange or red salmon eggs or green "hulk" works. I got there around 12ish and left around 6ish. There was a low wind most of the time but there were occasions when it would die or really pick up. It vaired between south and south-west for most of the day. There was a low amount of cloud cover. Didn't ahve a thermometer with me so no lake temp.

wow just re-read my psot and lots of spelling errors, guess I need to work on my typing. I meant green "hulk" worms.

I just updated the temps - went there today looking for muskie and didn't see a one. Wind was very heavy and the snow started flying. Glad you got some trout - we got one, but it was on accident.

Yeah the weather can change there fast and there really isn't any protection from the wind. But on a good day it's one of my favorite places to be (actually on bad days to as my best day there it was freezing and snowing) Glad to hear you at least got one fish even if it was on accident, I'm guessing it hit your muskie bait? It's funny what you'll catch sometimes.
