What a great day fishing! ! ! A 3 lb. 15 oz. Smallie, a 3 lb. 7 oz. Lg, a 3 lb. 5 oz. Lg, a 2 lb. 15 oz. Smallie and many others. Got lucky and picked the right day and the right presentation even though it took a while to find the right presentation. Tried crankbaits, grubs, spinnerebaits, jerkbaits, dropshot, jigs, swimbaits but only one presentation worked today. Every day is different. Bright Sun, wind 5 to 15, visability 5 to 6 ft. When we got back to the truck someone had backed into the front of my truck but was still there and some one had parked right behind trailor so I was totally blocked in, GREAT. I'd like to thank the kid who let me use his phone, he found the Lakewood Police number and they were there in 5 minutes. Good thing was there was no permanent damage to my truck, it was just bent in from the weight of his van, YEAH ! !

Very nice Andy. Steilacoom was one lake I fished and failed to catch a bass. Yesterday, I did add a new lake to my 283 list of bass lakes where I caught at least one bass. It felt good to an old Geezer almost 89.

283, WOW, hey wasn't that a good Chevy motor? That's a lot of lakes Bob and a lot of fishing. Steilacoom seems to be a hit or miss lake, sometimes good, sometimes bad. Sometimes GREAT. Ya still gotta deal with the 2 foot waves from those huge ski boats.

Nice! I didn't realize there were so many nice smallmouth in there. Looks like another lake to add to my list. I'm a little hesitant though being a float tube fisherman. Ski boats and tubes aren't always the best mix. I sure wish there was a smallie water that didn't have ski boats, but it seems they all do.
