12/2/2017: Two successful weekends in a row…last week I caught a 2.5 lb catfish at a private lake, and this weekend I caught a limit of trout at Rolex Lake (pictured). They are stocking them bigger this year, apparently. Three over 12 inches. I caught them using a rainbow tiger rooster tail doped with garlic powerbait.
10/29/2017: I haven’t managed to make it out for several weeks, now. I did get out in October, catching a dozen bluegill and one nice 2-lb catfish. Are you having any luck this fall? Tell us in the comments below.
