I was hoping to start the new year with a DD form my yak. Was concerned as this would be my 3rd trip in a row that falls right after a front passed through.
Loaded up and rolled for Casa Blanca. Blue bird morning started at 37 degrees. It warmed quickly though as the sun came up. I wasn't interested in numbers so I stuck with big baits on the ledges. Could see fish on the Lowrance on the ledges but couldn't get them to bite. Wind was making it tough. Finally decided to peddle across the lake out of the wind and try a shallow creek that had warmer water. While working my way back out the shallow side casting to deep water with a large square bill everything just stops. At first I thought I wedged the crankbait but then it started puling. Got it yak side still not sure how big it is and I see the head. Barely hooked with one hook in the lower lip. I take the chance of a hook in the fingers and lip her. Turns out to be a 7.5 pounder. Missed 2 more bites and had to load up because that park closes the gate at 5pm. Not quite the DD I wanted but I'll take it for a first fish of 2021.

A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.
