Lake Barret Opening 5/1/2013

Long time ago I caught the last fish here in SD or anywhere else. Time to put up some BASS!

May 1, I fished the opening at Lake Barret, CA. As I heard this opening means a lot to most of the anglers in San Diego and it’s hard to get the license to fish there. Fortunately I got a fishingbuddie here who organized me a tube spot for this day.

We arrived at around 4am and there were already 50 trucks or more waiting. By the way I was the only one with a normal car, strange feeling next to all the big trucks. But I did it down to the lake anyway.

We got into the water still in the dark and my first cast already produced a nice bass!

Few casts an fishes later I hooked a better bass around 4-5lb. It should be my best fish for the day.

With the next cast I lost a really nice fish with maybe 6lb or even more. Damn!

All morning long I caught several bass, lost a few and missed bites.

After a short lunch break I continued fishing till the sunset. The bites slowed down during the afternoon but I could still catch some fish.

Remember to catch&release bass all the time and please threat them right.

First day on a float tube here in Cali, that’s what I call a good start :D Finally I caught 26 bass plus the Gill and Sunfish, what is a result I’ve never got before.

It was probably my best day fishing so far and a really nice experience. I think I needed a day like this to get my motivation back. I hope to fish Barret again another day and wanna say thank u to the guys who realized the whole thing for me!
