Aggressive Spawners

My friend Chet and I hit the River today a few days after they recently dropped the flows to 315 cfs! It didnt hamper the bite much at all! After catching several fish I caught an 18 Brown (last pic) on a Dynamic J-Spec Fire Craw! Then we found a good stretch and caught several 15-16 Browns.Then just to the right of Chet a big beautiful spawn colored Brown jumped! After a couple casts Chet moved over to where it jumped then pitched out his small X-Rap and that big beautiful spawner a 19 chunk slammed it! We then moved around a bend and I pitched my Perch patterned Rapala Countdown! I jerked it down then started a slow crank and a 20 Male nailed in mid current! I ended up landing 39 and Chet caught a little over 40! Neither one of us caught any Bows.

Jim-You get better and make a trip over here next year. There is a place for a chance at a MA Trout and three locations in the Canyon to fish! I have an extra room for you and your wife.

Heres another dark chunky Brown that my friend Chet caught on this trip! Loving the pre spawn/spawn bite this year so far!

How do you keep,track of the numbers? Do you use some sort of counting device?
 Reply by: bharper      Posted: 10/19/2018 10:46:26 PM     Points: 232    
I log them every five fish or so! That way I can see how productive one lure is over another for that day and conditions.Also keeping track of each species and what sizes Im getting on each of the patterns! Like I get more Bows on a slow crank especially towards dusk! Usually an aggressive jerk works better on the Browns unless theyre in a negative mode,! Also helps keep the mind fresh for my old age! Lol! I also have a Large Measure Net that measures fish up to 28 which helps me get the sizes and gets the fish back in the water quicker!

Here's how I keep track of the numbers, one, two ,three etc.

I thought it might be a Dynamo Hum Countdown tracker device

Pathway- I cant count that high! I have to write it down between beers! Lol! JK! At the most I drink three in an 8 hr day!
