Just got back from a cast & blast trip to North Park.  We tagged out early, and decided to head over to N. Delany.  It was unbelievable to see all of the browns cruising around the shallows.  I was suprised not to spot up any really big fish, the biggest I saw was probably around 26" (I would expect 30" 10+lb fish in there...).

99.9999% of the fish were not even remotely interested in what we were throwing at them.  In fact, every time we changed lures we caught one fish - and then nothing else.  Too many fish were in spawning mode, I bet the pre-spawn fishing was awesome.  In all we caught 8 browns in a couple hours between ~ 20-25 inches.  Not bad, but not impressive for the sheer number of fish cruising.

Here's the lures that worked for me:
- small floating rapalas
- large jointed rapalas
- 1/4 oz white spinner bait (bass lure)
- large blue fox spinners (#4, chartreuse, blue)

I was a little hesitant to post up after getting reemed last week for being "Coy", and really hesitant to share pics after being accused of  "Eyeguy-Style" bragging.  If pictures of big fish offend you, please don't look, everyone else enjoy!  ;)

Hey basshunter, I finally decided to join the fun. I would have to say that bass hunter has special fishing powers or something. Every time he takes me along he catches at least twice as many fish as I do. I think I outfished him once, sure was a reason to celebrate. :)

Hopefully I can get out fishing again before winter comes, if only I wasn't so busy. :mad:

Hey arsrmk - welcome to the site!! "Special Powers"?? - no. I just fish so much that I'm bound to stumble into something decent every once in a while :)

someone told me that they(the dow) were thinking about closing north delaney down until the brown spawn is done as alot of people try to snag them instead of fishing for them.. anyone know of any truth to that
