Went out for some wipers today at Jackson Res. Fished approx. from 06:00 to 10:00. I personally caught 9 total and all were between 15 1/2" and 16", but fat. We didn't even think they were of size and some of the guys released theirs until we dug up a tape measure from the glove box. Lost the last one right before the action slowed down. Well, for me at least. Some of my partners caught em every here and there up til when we left. Caught my 1st 5 between 06:30 and about 07:00. Very light pecks and the hookset had to be timed perfect (kind of awkward for wipers, but it made the fishing interesting). Picked up the other four slowly, one by one as the morning went by. Oh... And I also somehow hooked this giant 20lb carp (we call: yellow wiper ;D) on my lil 6 lb line and fought his arse for about 15 minutes. That was when my buddies were doing very well and rubbed it in my face. As soon as I landed the giant and got my lure back in the water, the action stopped again! Used Rattlin Rapalas, Rat-L-Traps, Kasties and tried jigs w/no cigar. Seemed like they were more into the stuff with metalic shine. The inlet was our spot of choice for today, but it got hella crowded. Not much other people catching fish. Seemed like we were the only ones who caught fish. The park ranger said the dike is doing better, but we didn't have time to try that part. Anyhow, there were six of us license holders. About only 3 of us limited, with me being the exception (9 fish, go figure). The other 3 gave up and slept in order to maintain on the drive home and entertain eachother by slammin on eachother's fishing skills the whole drive home. Overall it was a good morning. B-T-W they were hitting deep and persistance was the game. Water in that inlet is quite dark and stained. Sh*tload of tumbleweeds which got old after a while. The carps moved in and started an underwater dust storm right as the sun felt hot on the skin which killed the bite. I'd tell you all the "so called secret" but it's hidden within this post itself. I know, I'm an a$$... ;D Reason for that is only my good intention: I'd like to see my fellow fishermen step up their game and do some dirty work themselves. Why wait on a report when you can be the one who always reports 1st? Just my two rusty pennies ;D

These two are just examples. Like our good Walley Champ, EyeGuy said, "Catch and Release into the Grease!" <-- It's just an honest down to earth statement.

Wholey schnikey, that was a longa$$ report. Sorry guys for jibber jabberin too long.

Good job man! Is the dike another term for dam?
Yep.. Oh and check this out.. The ranger also told us that they re-did the dam to make it fishable. Instead of a dangerous slope down, there are now steps. We should all now feel a lot safer fishing over there from shore.

Yo dude are you laos?  Im vietnamese. Thanks for the info man im gonna try to night fish tonight on the damn see what happens.
Eh dawg, I'm Hmong.... But just call me an Illinoisan  ;D Yeah, that's where I was born, although I have no memories of it. My little cousin says I'm a Martian cause I'm a weirdo. My girlfriend says I'm a F.O.B. (Fresh Off the Boat) cause I have no other hobbies but fishing, hunting, drinking and "pondering the meaning of life".... And I've concluded that the meaning of life is to keep fishing and hunting. Hehe.. God bless  Vietnamese people for inventing 'pho'.  ;)

At least you didn't go out today (Sunday). I went to the lake today and just about got blown off. It was the by far the worst experience loading a boat that I have yet in this state. I will return to try again another day. I just glad Saturday was a good day for everyone there.

One Eye,

Entertaining and informative posts. And, risking going off-topic, I'd like to second the blessing on the Vietnamese for Pho! In Denver, like lots of US cities, we'd be in the dump food-wise if it wasn't for the immigrants.
