Caught 51 fish on Greenbrier Lake
Location: Greenbrier Lake
What a day(s) at Greenbrier, 20 fish the first day and 31 in the second day makes 51 fish in two days. I don't know about you, but that's pretty good for me. Let's start off with the fish count... Day 1 started off with fish rising everywhere especially Trout. You could paddle along and just spot the Goldens in your kayak. I saw a lot of fish, especially small Bass and some Sunfish, while paddling the that shallow half of the lake straight out from the fishing dock. Basically all I did was cast out the Trout Magnet with it rigged under a strike indicator and let it sit. Sometimes you could give it a little plop to give it some action. The second day was just like the first one only I got to stay longer. I targeted Trout at first, they were holding high in the water column and were everywhere rising. But, you just couldn't paddle to where they just rose, they would be gone. I guess it is kind of luck in locating them. I caught several of the Trout about 100 feet out from the boat rental dock. Just cast it along the drop off there and boom, you would have a hit. Then I located the Panfish, in the other corner of the lake, kind of near the dam. I do not have a graph, so I guess you can say that I am just guessing on where to fish if I am in deeper water and cannot see the bottom. It was a great two days, I took lots of pics too. One Bluegill was pushing 10 inches or 10.5, we'll say 10. Caught a couple nice Redears too. Some of the Trout had injuries on them and the Golden that I caught on the second day had some kind of lesion on it of some sort I think.
