never had a baitcaster.. used one one time in ocean for rockfish.. but it wasn't casting was just dropping it down 300 feet. so ya got one finally.. now need to learn it. here some practice with it..

first fish on it. and some other

also lots of trout being planted again this week at Castaic and other lake/s I think.. something happened at one of the farms and they are forced to dump all the fish in lakes before they are a full loss.. 10k lbs last week at Castaic and another this week.. I think also pyramid too not sure where else.
