followed the truck?

I think I might have inadvertently followed the stocking truck one day --- I caught (8) rainbows over 18" in about 90 mins. ... caught (2) more the next day ... haven't been able to repeat ...

there's no inadvertent to it, I simply put the GPS tracker on the truck.. that way no one KNOWS I follow it. Although that FishRangler guy has accused me of it.

looks like you had fun. Congratulations

Thanks elkinthebag, I'll double check that attachment the pictures, I was using a Shakespeare ugly stik GX2 6'6" medium action # USSP664M..... It's a 4 pcs. travel rod, the 1st joint spanning from 18.75" to 20" from the end. You kind of caught me, I typically understate the size of my fish, the fish in the 1st picture is clearly over 20". The rest were more like this .... Because they were Prospect put-& takes, + I didn't have a camera on the water (had to borrow), I legally sacrificed some ..... Thanks for the check ....

Nice job Jeff! That happened to me when I first when to the Delany lakes, but that's a norm at those lakes. Feels good don't it!
