The first time that I’ve tried to do that. Even though I’ve been working here, but maybe close to two years coming up on or a year and a half or something that I’ve been working here in Albuquerque. So this is the first time that I’ve, actually, you know went got my license and all that stuff and I wanted to go, do some fish and I had read that they stopped trout in the drainage ditches that are next to well.
Sorry about that, I was paying attention to the road that is next to the river and I had heard that they had stocked some trout in there and that the Rio Grande River, I meant to say the the the head start.
Some trout in the drainage, ditches that are just to the east is that right, yes, the east of the river anyway, the hard part was finding a dang place where the road cuz I’m in a car here, so finding a place where the road would connect to the river and I was having a real, tough time, a real, tough time I was about to give up actually and then I told myself all right.
Let me go down this road and see if I got access there and if not, I’m, going to turn around and come back up one more Road and if I can’t get into the river or to the Drainage ditches, then I’m, giving up because I had tried a few places.
Some people said: try Korres and Rio. Bravo behind the Walmart. I’ve, never fished there, but it looked kind of trashy. They put up a fence. I don’t know if that fence has always been there, but there was a fence up.
You probably could have crawled over the fence because it was knocked down, but it just looked very shallow and trashy that’s. All I got to say you know when they put up the fence. If that’s, something new.
I think that’s, maybe not a very good idea, or maybe they should put up a short fence or something so that it’s still inviting to go in there. Instead of trying to keep everybody out because the problem is all the trash gets in there, nobody gets in there and cleans it.
But I know a lot of fishermen like myself whenever they find trash laying around in a spot where they’re fishing. We’ll go pick up the trash and take it with us. So if you let people fish there, probably I don’t know we might end up better off.
Who knows anyway, I did find a place and I won’t say where it is, but if you want to know my contact information is on my blog fishing money.com fishing without a GE, fishing, money.com blog, and you can find my contact info.
Send me an e-mail, I’ll, tell you where or a text either way and I’ll tell you where to go, but I did find a spot, and some people were catching them there. And apparently, you know, since I’m new here it’s, not my area.
I was doing it the way I do it and I wasn’t really getting any bites, but I could see other people catching them. So I was watching to see how they were doing it and you & # 39. Ve got a few pointers, a few tips, and I got a little bit closer and to what it you know was going to take to get it done.
I could tell some people were using Berkeley Power Bait and I’ve, seen not in this particular spot, but I’ve seen other people just using a worm. I didn’t have any worms, because when I went to get some they were out, so I had to try something else.
I tried a little black tube worm for trout. I tried I had some trout potion that smelly stuff to put on it. I tried that I tried. I tried a little minnow. I tried that a tri-five thought in because the water was a lot more.
There was a lot more current in the water than I thought there would be, and so I had to put a lot of weight. I tried to put a lot of weight and I did a drop shot rig where my weights were down on the bottom.
Stuck to the bottom and my lure, my worm was up about a foot off the ground foot in half and keeping it up out of the weeds and stuff more presentable. The whole drainage area right there was probably no more than 2 or 3 feet.
There were probably areas where it was deeper, but mostly about 3, maybe 4 feet at the most, and I saw a guy behind me, walk up and had a whole string of full of trout, and I thought, okay, I’m, doing this wrong, where, Where, where did he get those you know so I kind of picked up because I had been in the same spot for a while.
I picked up and went over to where he was and I was getting bites, but I think my worm was a little too long because they were grabbing the back of my worm and then and then letting it go. They weren’t getting up.
All the way up to the hook, the worm itself was only maybe three inches two and a half three inches. They’re, just little black ones, little black rubber worms, little skinny ones, not your like bass, worm but way smaller and anyway, I met a guy.
I met a guy named Paul and he was fishing on the other side of the river from me. I call it a river, I guess it’s, a river, ditch drainage, whatever he was fishing on the other side of the river for me and he I saw him catch one over there and then once I picked up and walked away pretty Soon he picked up and came over to where I was.
He was on the other side of the ditch for me and we did have a little conversation and stuff, and so now is where I got to say. I’m very grateful for Paul, because not only did he tell me what he was using because he was catching a few on the other side and I wasn’t.
Not only did he tell me how he was doing it, he when he was ready to go. He gave me what he had and I really appreciate that. No, I’m, going the wrong way anyway. So I really appreciate Paul for giving me what he had.
He was using a I don’t know if Berkley makes these but a little rubber white like a rubber ball, but I guess it’s made for trout bait. I’ve, never used them before a little bit bigger than a salmon egg.
I, though, and what it reminded me of, is the head that’s on the mouse tails I’ve used mouse tails before it looked just like the head, that’s on the mouse tails. I don’t know if they sell them separately from the tail or if it’s broken off a mouse tail, not sure.
Maybe somebody can tell me about that or I’ll. Look next time I go to the bait shop, but anyway um he had a little right, little white, rubber or little head that he put on it and then wax worms. So I learned something there too because be honest with you all these years.
I’ve been fish and I’ve, never used wax worms to fish with you use lots of different kinds of Warner’s, but not wax worms. I’ve, even used mealworms, but not wax worms. So I don’t know where he got them all, have to do some research on that, but he gave me what he had.
He had three wax worms left and he had I’m sure you have more in his truck. He said, but we were kind of far away from the vehicles and he gave me that white that little white head off of his hook, and so what did? I do? I had to re-rig my rig because i was using a drop shot rig and he was using a Carolina rig and I didn’t really have the luxury, it was getting dark already.
In fact, it was already dark and my I’m getting old my eyes, aren’t that great, so I had to retie and I had to try to do it in the dark. So I did the best I could and which was okay, not the best that I’ve done in you know that I know how to do, but the best I could do in the dark I didn’t have a flashlight.
I’m traveling. You guys I traveled for a living, so I don’t have my whole tackle box with me. I just have very minimal stuff, but now I know what I need over there thanks to Paul and he works for an airline, a well-known airline, that’s.
All I’ll say I really appreciate it Paul if you find this video, because you taught me how to do it, and so now, next time I go, I’ll know how to do it. I’ll know what to bring with me as well, that’s.
What it’s all about you, guys fishing, helping each other. He had a good time. He made sure I had a good time before I left and – and I hope he finds this video and he will – because I told him about my blog and so that’ll connect him to this video.
So hopefully he’ll find it in the future, but that’s, pretty cool that any fisherman will do that to help out other fishermen. So I appreciate it, Paul. I hope you guys are helping each other out as well.
Whenever you can – and I’m – not saying you have to give away your best spot, but if you see a guy standing there, that’s, having trouble, give him a hand fishings fun. It’s more fun when you catch fish, so I got some pictures.
I’ll mix them up with this video and tell a little story, and then I’ll, be putting this video on a blog as well.
