Ventured up to Diamond Lake, Oregon to participate in an annual trout derby with the girlfriend’s family…yes…Trout. Brought all light to MH bass gear and in a rare…I mean VERY rare occurrence, utilized some spinning gear. 

I must say, it was the most fun I’ve had fishing for what I affectionately call “Slimers”. I got 3rd big fish of the tourney at 18.5” and a ton of quality-sized others as well. We caught em on everything from Kastmasters (X7 Super Eiger/tuned Steez CT and Lin258/X7 Powerhouse) to split-shotting/drifting Flies (T3 Air/Gan Craft Melt Bone) to trolling a Ford Fender/Wedding Ring (X7 Extreme Mission/Steez SVTW/KTF Neo)…yeah…I did that. 

I got teased for even trying to make them trout eat a drop shot (Cristobal Ltd/Zonda 68/MB Honeycomb)…to no avail…🤣

Had a great time, TBH…lost count of how many fish I caught and only took a few fish pics. More so to prove that I actually used some spinning gear. Nobody would’ve believed me otherwise. The camaraderie was off the charts, food was delicious and the views…breathtaking. I might actually do it again next year.

@gaijin it was so much nicer than I anticipated. It was incredible out there. So much for “preconceived notions”…right?
