Trout were stocked this past week in the Madison Co Lk. Avg fish is about 0.8-1.2 lbs and 12-14". These are some great fish and excellent fighters. Yesterday they caught one that went 3.2lbs.
Took my daughters out today and it took less than an hour to catch our 15 fish limit! We were using rainbow or yellow powerbait. The set up I use is a number 12 or 14 hooks on an 18" leader with a barrel swivel and an egg sinker on the main line, sometimes I'll but colored beads on each side of the sinker to keep it from damaging the knot on the swivel. I fish this rig on a tight line, with poles in a pole holder.
Fish were extremely aggresive today and were hitting the bait soon after it hit the water. A couple of times we did not even get the pole into the pole holder before we had a fish on!
This is an excellent fishery to take the your kids out and let them catch some fish. Remember the kids need to catch something to keep their interest up and become the future of our sport. Tight lines :)
