Anyways......... That will not stop my from fishing a few times. Last weekend 3/27/2011 I wanted to catch some Native brookies. So I went to a small stream near my house to get that fix in. The weather was cold started off in the upper 20's and only reached about 31 degrees. Started using a Rapala X04 X-rap with only a couple of takers. I switched to a panther martin, but that produced the same results. Tied on a white jig and the brookies went nuts. Caught over 40 brookies many of them small, but a couple nice ones with a 13 incher to end the day.

The trout were smashing jigs
I also did some brown trout fishing on the old trusty BEC nothing huge to speak of, but I had steady action all day long. Water was very clear and the trout were bitting on stick baits, spinners and jigs. I fished BEC today on 4/3/2011 and 3/27/2011beside the browns I caught I also got a really nice 22 inch rainbow caught on a jig I posted that video below. So far this spring jigs have treated me very well!
