So, I go and get myself all worked up about some great Summertime Gill fishing.... and now its feeling like Summer is never going to get here ? :-(
I've lived in Nor Cal for 42 of my almost 45 years, and I have "NEVER" seen such cool, cloudy weather persist, into the middle of June ! Only 70 degrees today, and the extended forcast just keeps showing more of the same.
If Clear Lk. were a lot closer, I'd go check it out anyway, but I'm guessing the water temp is in the low 60's.... and I can't imagine any great Gill fishing until we have some good, solid, 90 degree days, and water temps in the low 70's...
Note: I can just imagine guys here, from other states saying, "Oh, low 60's is perfect ! 70 degree air temps ?!?! Wow ! It's already hot in Nor Cal" :-) LOL Uhhhh..... No. This is not normal for Nor Cal.
So, I guess I'm going to have to keep resorting back to the big green Sunfish until our weather finally warms up... if it ever does.
That's where I'm at. But I'm still hoping to post some good trips + photos here ASAP.
PS, My underwater video was a semi-success, on the intial run, 2 days ago :-) I got a 4 lb Bass to follow my wake bait up to the camera, eyeing it :-) Then I managed to fight a 4.9 lb Smallmouth up to the camera, after hooking it on a crawler :-)
I think the underwater housing is going to work good on the Gills, if I can find them in clear water.
