Thanks guys. I have read numerous articles about them. The chars are at Dillon and someplace in maine. Thought it might be cool to get one.

Your chances are better right now through the ice, they live deep bite light and aren't many in there. Good luck your gonna need it.

Lew, this weekend I am doing the Wounded Warrior Tourney on Saturday and then taking the Boy Scouts out on Sunday, so this weekend won't work. Maybe next weekend?

"They are super rare, only showing up in two lakes in the entire continental United States, so if I catch one I'll be sure to show picture of the fillets after I kill it".. :-(

Hey fordo them are decent looking fish. I have been wanting to catch one for a while. Got me all fluctured up now. How was the ice up there?

Wonder what it would take to get them stocked again? They're obviously breeding...maybe some more fish would give the population a boost.

Last I looked for them, believe found them at 130 foot, but got blown off by thunder storm, before getting much of a shot at seeing one. At least good to know they are feeding on some of the shrimp. And yes, I would have rather seen money spent on their stocking, instead of a bicycle path across the CC dam.
