Nice looking bass! They really like what you're making and throwing.

The catfish in the video is 7" and weighs 2.3oz, the topwater cat that caught the fish is 4" and weighs 1/2oz, the trout is a whopping 14" and weighs 14.8oz, I'm just dieing to try it in the So Cal reservoirs, I only wish I had something to throw it with.

i was going to guess it weighed a pound
i guess you will just have to use that as a trolling lure if you cant cast it.

I'm gonna go ahead and buy a big swimbait rig, then I'll have something to use for yellowtail fishing too.

That trout will be the ticket in the late winter.
Look for where San Diego Water and Power drops off their replacement power poles, and steal one to throw that bait! And stop by Mission Bay and pick up an Accurate two speed reel to mount on it. Maybe you can make a deal for a used setup from a sword fish guy.
Seriously, I made a 12" surface trout that weighs well over six ounces (it's the five piece trout in the gallery), and it's all I can do to throw it with my 8' Shimano Crucial extra heavy swimbait rod. I'm good for about a half hour of that, and then it's back to the "featherweight" 10", four ounce swimbaits.
I don't even through trout lures after May, because they stop stocking, and the bass get onto the shad bite, so they ignore the trout unless you hit them on the head.
I have gotten bit on 6" crappie and bluegill swimbaits, but that gets slow, too, when the bass are on the shad and crawdads in the summer and early fall.
Now late fall is a different story.........

Ma' what do you catch with the Trout, offshore here they use 9" lures for ling.

man, that trout is amazing! But, how do you make it turn 180 degrees?
Posted 13 August 2008 - 04:30 PM
You just jerk it like you would with a zara spook,only the trout has so much momentum that it keeps turning
