Disinterested fish

Hardly anyone posts about this lake so thought I better provide an update. There was about 12 inches of ice where I fished, but be careful. It was so warm up there, I had surface water on the ice in my hut. In January???Wow. Road in is gravel all the way. Bite was very slow with lots of echoes but few bites. Multiple colors...multiple snubs. Had fun anyway!

Hey John, I went to that lake last week and also hit up Continental I did great in both.. I limited out on FAT brooks at Rio Hondo and big bows at continental.. Imma have to show you a few tips one day.

Nice fish! I did manage a nice brookie from Rito, but was surprised to see she still had a bellyful of eggs. I think they normally spawn in Oct-December so that surprised me. Thanks for your reports up that way...guy!
