Our store sponsored trip to Tejon Ranch was a big success thanks mostly to the hard work of our buddy Russ Gabel who provided shade canopies, chairs, coolers full of beverages and a fantastic lunch delivered by his better half, Debbie. Everyone enjoyed success on LM bass and fat bluegill which were willing to slam a variety of flies from nymphs to poppers.
The bluegill are really fat and very strong.
A fine selection of very tasty sandwiches delivered for lunch.
No, this is not a gypsy encampment. Just a group of intrepid anglers after a fine morning on the water.
The male bluegill are impressive in their spawning regalia.
The females, although not as bright, pull just as hard.
This is why they are called Largemouth Bass.
The LM Bass came in this normal colored variety and...
in a pale version from deeper water.
All in all a very satisfying day on the water.
We will be doing more of these in the future. Stay tuned.
