40°at the ramp @9:40 am, breeze blowing around 8 mph. I decided to start on the leeward side of the point where the ramp is. Threw a Fluke, a watermelon Dinger, and a couple different Ned Rigs, with zero bites. After losing the 3rd Ned Rig in the rocky bottom, I switched to a Green Pumpkin Dinger. I had 2 Smallies follow it to the bank but they wouldn't bite. After about 30 minutes, I got a decent bite, and set the hook. It wasn't pulling like a Smallmouth but it did break the surface 2x. I couldn't get a good look until I got it to the bank. A 3lb Seeforellen Brown Trout! The biggest Trout I've caught since I was 12 yrs old. I didn't have my cooler so C.P. R. and back in the water she went. As the wind picked up I worked my way down old Rt..8 for about half a mile, with no more action. The wind was about 12-15 by noon so I called it. I never expected to catch a Trout on a 5" Dinger, but you never know.

Thanks Four. Wrong species, but it has fins, not a stripe down it's back.
