Hey everyone.

I'm pretty sure I'm addicted to Quincy Reservoir. I love that I can go out there without a boat and have success almost any time of the day. Today I got off school at 2:15 (I hate being young) and headed out to the lake with a buddy for the third day in a row. We weren't in a hiking mood and the dock was empty so we set up shop there. I used my speckled green Strike King tube jig from yesterday and the same jigging retrieval. It wasn't long before I caught a nice little stocker trout about 12 inches. I had several hits that I missed because I let my line slack too much between jigs. My friend caught a 14 inch 'bow on a chartruse Mr. Twister using a jigging retrieval. I was switching up my lure choice and usied a Rooster Tail imitation with a green and gold spinner blade around dusk. I decided to experiment and jig the lure which I don't generally do too much with spinners, but this time it caught me a feisty little trout about 13 inches. Overall it was a good day and I learned a new way to use my spinners.

Catch and release as always; they'll be bigger next time.

Good luck!

Man, Yoy aint seen nothing yet. Wait till the water gets warmer and the bass start to move on to their beds. Man-o-man, If you like fish the Q now just wait. Not that you can't catch them now but when it gets warmer hold on.

And good job on the C&R.

Thanks Jay. I moved here a few years ago from Texas so I'm used to the warm water fish. I just started going to Quincy last year specifically for the bass and found out about the great trout after I caught one on a bass worm. I love bass though. I need to dig into the tiger muskie scene, but I need to get a boat first. My goal is 3 months and I'll be floating.
