Fun Catching the Big Ones

Post By: cohuntr      Posted: 6/16/2017 10:50:47 PM     Points: 104    
Caught several stocker trout, but the big Lakers were still coming in shallow to feed. I hooked several and broke off a few, but managed to land a nice 30 plus inch, 20 plus lb Laker on cut sucker meat. Rigged the same way as I do for big cats - loose drag, wait for the pull/click of the reel, set the drag, wind down and swing for the fences. I gave this big one a kiss, took pics, made sure to revive her and left her to swim again. Too much fun!

That's a nice one. Congrats

That's quite the accomplishment to land that big fish from shore. Whole different ballgame in shallow water,

4 of us fished Taylor on Wedneday from a boat with tube jigs and sucker meat. We caught 3 small ones all day so pretty pathetic. Maybe fishing with a sinker and hook with sucker meat is the way to do it? Nice fish.
