I fished Minersville with my father on Saturday, 1/19/08. We fished from 8am - 6:30pm. Fish were suspended at a depth of 12 feet, in 18 feet of water. The bite was fast from 10am - 12pm. We had about 40 strikes/bumps, 25 hookups and 18 landings. All fish were between 16 and 18.5 inches, with the majority being 17.5 inch rainbows (5 were cutts). They were very fat and appeared far healthier than the skinny cutts. I wonder what percent of the fish in this lake are over the slot...... 1 %??? They are fat, beautifully colored fish, but not very long. After 1pm, the bite died and we only picked up fish sporadically until we left at 6:30pm. The lure of the day was a small, white/pearl tube jig (1/8 oz w/ white head). Both head and body were glow-in-the-dark, but I don't think they were hitting it for that reason, as there was plenty of light. The problem was consistently finding fish. If they showed up on the fishfinder, we were almost guaranteed a bite. They seemed to be spread-out and not as grouped together as in the past. Other nearby anglers were doing well also. I found most fish to be at the edge of the inclined bank and the flat bottom, but anglers were also catching them in shallower water (8 - 12ft). It was a fun day of fishing.
