Well, yesterday it finally happened. After losing a fish of similar size under the ice Monday (possibly same fish?), I knew I had to go back. These big lakers sure are a trip to try to play and land through the ice and boy was it fun!
To begin with...this fish came at 1:30PM! Ya! In the typical afternoon slow down, when many laker fishermen give up (me included) I had this 37" shoot 20 feet off the bottom and inhale my tube after I gave it a slow twitch in its face. This has been the most aggressive take Ive had all season (and Ive been catching lakers since Nov!).
Super hyped, released to fight another day. As a note guys, even when things seem slow, hop around a few holes and you may be surprised what happens when you persevere.
Thats bad ass..I have been chasing lakers for a few years now and i have yet to hook anything over 23 inches.The joys of fishing in the deep water you never know what you might get into.Again awsome fish.
