    I live about a mile from Ballinger and fish it frequently with little or no success :beathead: (but I do like it for summer bass).
    I considered Silver in So. Everett and wouldn't rule it out, but launching the 'toon is pain in the ass because there's no close water access. That, by the way, is one reason I frequent Blackman's - you can drop the boat right from the truck into the water. Never tried Thomas Lake, so maybe worth checking out.

    Ballinger can be a challenge but they are there. I live a block awat and use the west side access. In june the evening chronnie hatch can be a blast.

    Hi Chef, I've been following your posts and would like to meet you and the others for a great fishing outing. However, I won't be back home, Redmond, until next week. Have a great time at Blackmans.

    Tight lines.

    I thought that they filled in Thomas lake and built houses on the land fill.

    Jimbo, I havent been that way in awhile, maybe they did. I used to hit it in the late 80"s and early 90"s. But what do I know I'm just a guy with alittle over a thousand posts.

    Blackman's can be a good winter lake. Mark and I fished it a bunch of times and have had pretty good luck. I have some good pics of fish from there, might just show up.

    Dang it Steve, do I need to track down a baby sitter and show up at Blackmans on Sunday? Hmmm, maybe the boy would hold up to the cold ok. No, can't bring him I want his first few trips to be a tad warmer. Back to the baby sitter idea. I'll call his grandma.

    Chef,
    The "dark side" holds a lot of fish as you saw on sunday.
    Get addicted to the hatch, not the bug.
