No cake but there's pie


Carlos Valera

Whittier Ca

Species: Rainbow Trout/Steelhead

Date Caught: 05/16/2011

Kept / Released: Released

Region of Catch: Region 3

Length: 12 inches

Weight: 3

Lure / Bait used: Bait | Berkley Gulp Trout Dough- American Pie

A slow day at Irvine Lake in Irvine, California, had me believing that the fishing at this lake was not going to be a piece of cake. Not a fish in two hours and several lost lures made me switch to a Carolina rig with a piece of pie on the hook, American Pie that is. The Berkley Trout Dough in good old Red, White & Blue did the trick and I put this fish in the boat and then released it.
