Made it out to Pyramid last thursday and was able to fish from 11-5. The fishing has gotten a little better in the middle of the day out there with occasional cruisers coming through every 30 minutes or so. I have yet to get any large fish yet this year in the 5 trips or so I've made, everything is in the 18-25 inch range. Thats what draws me to pyramid, you never know when that next tug of the line is going to be the fish of a lifetime. Above, a ladder fish from thursday, 6 total.
Rob Anderson's pyramid blog has had some reports of folks doing good in the PM out there as of late. The weather has been cold, windy, and cloudy bringing more fish into shore over the last 5 days. I fished from 1-5 today and had all kinds of action. I was able to pick up fish on the indicator, buggers, and beetles. 7 fish were landed and 4 got off the hook with another 6 or so missed bites. The pic above was a nice 6 pound female that took a beetle, the very next cast I landed another 6 pound female. I was shocked to see not 1 but 2 large females, I cant remember ever catching a female that large.
Took a trip out to pyramid today, mostly because there was a thick bank of fog out the window when I woke up. That wasn't the case about 5 miles outside the lake, by the time I dropped the ladder in the water there wasn't a cloud in sight. There were some pics of a 20 pounder that was landed a couple weeks ago but there were no 20 pounders sighted today. I fished a beach scatter with 8 or 9 guys and I didn't see a single fish landed among them. I was able to get three to take today, one on a jig and two on the beetle. All in all a pretty slow day. Not sure whats going on out there but it's shaping up to be a repeat of last year.
