Michael W.: Thursday, April 27 report:
In 3 hours of fishing in difficult weather conditions, my fellow fisherman & I caught and released (1) 2-pound brown trout, (3) 12 to 14 inch rainbow trout, (1) 9-inch white crappie, and had (1) 3-pound brown trout and (1) 2-pound rainbow trout that we were unable to land, before the hook popped out of their mouths! All fish caught on 2-inch Crappie Minnow Tubes. Weather Conditions: Winds 18 to 21 mph, with gust as high as 31 mph Water Conditions: Muddy.
- Jamie Goodman of Mesa went to Alamo Lake with outdoor writer Don Martin. Jamie holds the two biggest cats they caught.
- A few hours work! Jamie Goodman and Don Martin caught these five channel cats and lost three more on Sunday morning (May 30) while fishing at Alamo Lake. The cats were caught on nightcrawlers in 6 feet of water.
Canal in Scottsdale
Irina: I pulled a 30-pound, 30-inch carp from an Arizona canal in Scottsdale yesterday (April 27). I’ve used a 4 size baitholder hook with 4 kernels of corn. It took about 5 minutes for the fish to bite, and ~15 for me to pull it out.
The bass bite is on! I love encouraging others to get outdoors. I caught these four bass off my kayak in a little over a week … drop shotting plastics.
