I was out of action in terms of fishing much of last week, due to Commission meetings. My brother Rick did get out on the water, though, and had some terrific fishing, when the weather cooperated. He and my cousin Greg Preston decided to focus their fishing efforts on Rufus Woods Reservoir, and it turned out to be a great choice. They fished for two days on the upper end of Rufus Woods and trolled below both the upper pens and the next set down. They got lots of triploids from 3 to 6 pounds, and also caught some nice walleye while they were at it. They were trolling either naked Slow Death Hooks baited with nightcrawlers or tandem hooked spinners and crawlers. One of the things that they learned on this trip was that they could catch fish just as easily or maybe even better by trolling upstream. I have always trolled downstream, and since I was catching plenty of fish, would run to the top of the fishing area after reached the bottom end. Now I know I can just turn the boat around and troll back up to the top end. I can’t wait to get back up there.
Here is my cousin Greg with a dandy Rufus Woods triploid.
