Have fun with your Steelies. It is so much fun to fight a fish with strength, acrobatics, and speed. I'm just happy to hook into one and feel a tight line for a minute. If the fish throws the hook, I'm a happy camper.
The spring run is happening in Northern California, too. But the fun thing is that these fish are smaller (16 to 22 inches). Lighter weight gear gets to be used. I like breaking out the 5 weight for these fish.
