Check This Out! Great derby at SARL!

I want to start of by thanking Kevin for putting on such a great event. There were so many people there they had to start letting people in an hour and a half early to get the cars out of the street. I started fishing around 5:15 am but I don’t think the action really started until. The sun came up. That’s usually around the time the trout start feeding anyway. I made this diagram to show why I chose my spot.

As you can see I assumed the wind would push the fish up that bank and the would hold in that Downwind pocket. Right at first light Richard smith with team 57 got a solid 6lber about 20 feet from me witch ended up being the 2nd place winner for the day.
I managed 1 1lber with a few more bites and one significantly larger fish that wrapped me up in four other lines with the guys next to me and pulled the hook. I fished lime twist, white, and salmon egg power bait on a Carolina rig with a 12” leader. All my bites came in the salmon egg power bait.

All in all I had a great time, met a few new people, and learned a little bit too. Thanks to Mikey for allowing me to represent OFB out there today. I wish I coulda pulled together a nice weight for you but they just weren’t cooperating.
