Had an INSANE day recently up at 7.7K, hitting a lake that was just icing off...It was a really warm day so after the first hour, the dam wall opened up about 10 yards and a nice ally of open water was available...The Minnows were THICK AS GNATS from one end of the dam wall to the other (Pictured below)!
My GF and I were using 2" Micro Minnows from one of my sponsors (also pictured below). I figured with all the minnows being in the shallows (didn't think there was going to be this many) during these times, the small paddletail would be a great call...We were there for a few hours and I estimate we caught around 50...Almost every cast was a fish lol.
Did my first How-To video on pulling trout in with softbaits, hoping I did a good job of balancing explanation of tips/techniques and fishing action! I don't normally request that you guys watch the video but really eager to know what you guys think! (if not, still attached pictures :D ) [log in for link]
