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.
