Lake Ramona 7-29-12
I woke up this morning and I had that feeling that I needed to go fishing so I decided to make the 2.5 mile hike up to Lake Ramona. It's been a while since I fished there but everything looked the same. The water was very clear and except for a few small bass in the shallows, I saw almost nothing worth catching. I started at the dam and just walked the shoreline throwing worms texas-rigged and dropshot style. I quickly picked up a solid 5 lb bass. Over the next 4 hours I caught 8 more bass from 1-2 lbs. with the hot baits being the 4 1/2" Margarita Mutilator and 6" Bold Bluegill Roboworm . Most bites came at the beginning of my retrieve far from shore and every fish that I did see crusing completely ignored my baits.
At one point, a huge bass(10 lb?) threatened to eat one of my hooked bass(1 lb) but it couldn't quite commit to taking it in it's mouth. I left my hooked fish in the water for at least 2-3 mins and the big one kept following it, making occasional charges at it only to turn away at the last second. That was exciting! I kept working that area for a while but never saw it again.
It was a nice day for a walk around the lake and the fishing wasn't too bad either.

Nice Steve. I grew up fishing Ramona. It's a great place to get away from the crowds since most people refuse to take the hike there. And there is exceptional bass fishing at the right times. Thanks for the post and pics! Paul

Right on. I was up there last month, got skunked. Saw very few fish. I too was wondering what the main forage was in that lake. Didn't see any birds or fish boiling on the surface.
