We finally got some rain this week and the lake took a good rise. Where I was dragging mud last week at the ramp, now there is 3' minnimum.

I was quite surprised to find that despite the storms, the lake didn't muddy. The fishing was a bit slow Sunday. We managed 16 keepers, with most being in the 12" to 13" range.

Today I had Ron Tsiada and "Chen" from St. Paul Mn. These fellows laughed when I mentioned how cold it was (18 degrees at launch). They fished all day in street clothes and light jackets. Where I was bundled up like an Eskimo!

It was a beutiful day though, warming up to the low 50's. We boated 20 keeper fish and threw back more than 40 just under fish. I believe the guys were impressed with the quality of fish at Grenada Lake. Water temp was 44, fished 10 to 12' water, slow trolling minnows.

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
