Phil - you don't know what you're missing!
Chubs are small. I suspect most WCFers turn their noses up at them. The one in the picture is about 6" - pretty average for Salt Creek. A few years back I caught a 12"er on another stretch - a real giant. But again, they're a hoot on UL gear. I use 4lb mono on a Pflueger President 6720 on a 7' Cableas Proguide UL rod - the nicest UL setup I've ever had.
BTW - went back again this AM & got skunked. Lost 2 lures - a Roostertail spinner & a Wobbleright spoon in a tree. Closer examination of the tree through field glasses revealed many others caught in it. I plan to go back with my waders & liberate them all.
A solitary coyote trotted by on the opposite bank. Checked my watch & it was almost exactly the same time 2 of them came by yesterday. I suspect it was the male & the female is back home getting ready for a litter - it's just about that time.
Keep calm and fish on...
There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid
