Which lake do you go to?

Unless you are lucky at a very shallow, small pond...the water temp will take weeks to change, not two days regardless of how hot it gets outside. If anything, two days of warm temps might trigger the fish's metabolism and cause them to start moving around a bit more(I would think, anyway). How large is the lake you fished? Sometimes its just an off day no matter what you throw at them or where you go.

Did you throw any cranks? They may still be a little deeper.

The lake is large but has large shallow sections (where I was) that are about 2-4 feet deep. I wasn't throwing any cranks b/c i didn't have any with me that were not too big for the rod I was using (ugly stik ultralight).

TexJas, you can always start out old school like I and many others here did as a kid .

There is really great fun to be had catching a fish on a cane pole or even better the extending fiberglass ones to be had now a days .

Then get a Zebco 202 or 404 maybe too .

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Zebco-202-...Reels/16935171

I own other rods and reels now that cost more but I still own both of the above and love to use them .

I love Bream/Sun/Pan fishing or even Bass and Cat fishing fishing with them .

It is really great fun catching something on a light weight pole and is a real challenge .

Give me a big Bream on a cane type pole and I am in bigtime Heaven .

You don't have to spend alot to have a blast .

And you don't need any fancy/smancy lures, just weight,bait and a bobber .

I have a question:

I found a Penn 550SS at a thrift store in great condition. It was $5 so I picked it up. Now I'm looking for a rod to go with it. I'm looking to use it for catfish and maybe try my hand at striped bass. I already have my ultra light, and bait casting set up so this would be my heavier duty set up. I want to keep it under $80. I'm not looking for anything intense, just something I can use around the Bay Area and delta.

look for a rod in the 7-8 foot range. look for a medium heavy. thats what i use for catfishing. and for catfishing you dont need a real expensive/sensitive rod. so even an ugly stick would work just great!

Cool. That's what I was thinking. I looked at a few rods today and it seemed that 7'-8' were right on.

But would that also work for pier fishing?
