You're right footmaster. The 5 fish bag is a common measurement for the serious bass people, used in tournaments. (I watch too much TV). He's not suggesting he caught a sack full of 15 pounders. He would be on the cover of USA Today if he did that & every bass fisherman in the world would be converging on CC.
I think it's safe to assume that he made the honest mistake of writing pounds where it should have been inches. I've got a half dozen punch lines to add but none are suitable for the possibility of a family audience!
Back to Shenk's original question. Yes, they are there. Unless the lake has been poisoned or drained. If the lake ever approaches 60 degrees, they will breed like flies. At that elevation, the time to go after them is now.

Correct, 5 fish for a total of 15-16lbs. Biggest was about 3.75lbs. So no giants, several 2.5-3lb fish. I honestly didn't expect that, since i was just goofing around and had fished maybe twice since the year before.
