Nitro vs Me on Germantown lake

Recommended Posts

well, it wasn't really a tourney it was just to make things fun! well lets see...in the morning we were running buzz baits for about an hour and hit the first cove, nitro hooked one butttttt didn't meet minimum standards :)  (12") so we kept working the left side and of course i gave up on the buzz bait and threw a popper - that didn't work and i didn't have much confidence in it to begin with and then i tied on my Rapala X-Rap 8 - after the 3rd or 4th cast caught me self a keeper! so we worked the rocks for a while since traffic was holding us up (people in canoe) and then Nitro tied on a spook and worked it in the next cove and got himself  a keeper, from there we pretty much snagged because of careless casts :) so we kept working and working and working the left side and so we trollied backwards towards the launch again and went into the cove where the stream would come in and got some bites there with a watermelon/charteous senko. So we kept working the right side for majority of the day. So overall together we had 8 keepers but 1 didn't make it to the weigh in :( so nitro had 4 keepers and weighed in at 3lb 12oz? and i weighed in at 2lb 13 ounces with 3 keepers. and we also caught too many dinks. Other than that, it was a verry good day and nitro is a very cool guy to fish with, if you get a chance to fish with him, take it! haha. I'm shocked at how many fish i caught at a lake that i've only been to once but then again, i was with someone who knew the lake :) thanks nitro for the funness :P

NICE! sounded like you had a lot of fun.  You'll get him next time! Always great to get out on the water with someone who's familiar with the place.

and the funny thing is after we weighed them and threw them back in the water - we realized that we forgot to take pictures.. :-/

Better than my dad and I fared out there on Saturday man. Nitro knows that lake like no other. You got out with the right person. Good job on snagging so many keepers. We only managed two keepers but missed a couple others out there this past weekend. Where are the lunkers?!?!? I see the pictures on their website, but then I hear a lot of the bigguns are caught on live bait! Bleh! Lol.

Good job again man.  If your free Thursday we got a couple people hitting Mercer for the big ladies!  Let me know.

:(no lunkers. Nitro and i were at it all day trying to get one. Yeah, there are some hawgs in there but nitro has told me that once those hawgs are caught they're not placed back in the lake - which really gets me mad >:( CATCH AND RELEASE PEOPLE!!

HAHAHAHA This sounds like we had a hard day of fishing....

It was a lot of fun, we could have done better if my dang battery would last me longer then 7 hours!!!! I need a new one!!!!

Last year a young kid about 4 years old went out with his dad fishing with night crawlers and he pulled out a 7+ pounder and I know for a fact that they kept that fish to mount it... Guess they never heard of getting a replica and plus... at 4 years old who cares anyways??? Take a pic and throw it back!!!!!

I plan on talking to the park ranger there and asking him if I can take some small bass from a local private lake and put them into Germantown Lake so hopefully the fishing will get a lot better.

But I know I will need someone to go fishing with me on the private lake (200+ caught per day) so if anyone wants to go I'll have to get permission first and then we can transfer fish!!!!

Thanks for going again Chai hope you had a great time!

Nitro, let me know where the private lake is and I'm down dude.  I love private farm ponds/lakes.  I'm at my best there ( like most).

It is in Fauquier County... What days will you be availiable?? Just let me know when you can go and I will check my schedule. I have a good friend of mine who is coming home from Iraq on Saturday and I already promised to take him out fishing with me ever day that we can go until he heads back to Iraq. I think he will be home for 2 weeks but the fishing ain't going away in 2 weeks!!!!!

So let me know!!

haha, well it just took a little time after we hooked a fish to catch another one, but there were times where we caught one right after another! yeah man, thanks for having me out on your boat today, totally appreciate it. whenever you're available we need to put our skills to the test at burke and see if we can even pull keepers out of there :P

Sounds like you guys had a good time. That really stinks if a lot of the fish are being taken out of this lake. I know I hooked into one real nice one (3-4lbs) down at the first point on the left when you head toward the dam. He violently struck my lipless crank and then hit the boat hard with the bait in his mouth. When I went to pull back to keep him from going under the boat he broke free.

Ron,

I know exactly where you are talking about. I have caught a lot of fish off of this point but I have had trouble this year catching any fish!!!

Last year I pulled a good 8-10 lb. Channel Catfish off that point with a white spinner bait.

I'd like to get a bunch of fish to put in that lake. Hopefully I will get the OKAY from the county ranger!! ;)
