That water is full of them. Can't even imagine where to start targeting them in that lake. Trying to find weed edges in there would be quite the task.

Gross is a magical place. Admist all the small fish there are a few giants. There are also a few BIG browns. Very hard to find in that deep of a lake though.

Gross really is a special place, and truly a tough place to consistently catch fish. On top of that deep lakes kinda freak me out.

I brought a snorkel and mask to Lake Powell one year on a trip with the family when I was a kid. I threw it on expecting some cool underwater world. I got down about 10 feet deep and looked down a steep drop off into deep dark water and the feeling of uncomfortable dread filled my swim trunks. To this day I feel super uncomfortable being in water that is really deep.

I'm no expert, but I'm willing to bet it took more than 6 years for that fish to get that size.

I've been doing a lot of map reading and looking at possible structure of where these toothy beasts might be fishable to give me the best opportunity on the lake and i have not a clue. I will be fishing for some Lakers in second week of October and maybe I'll accidently catch one.

Magical, special, mythical call it what you want that lake does give me the jeebsy everytime I fish it. Back in high school (90's)we use to jump the cliffs and now as an adult, I keep reminding myself what were we thinking. Big toothy creatues does roam it and I have seen them come up once in a while. Go at the right time and place and you will hook into one but to bring it in is another story.

Killer, I've fallen every time I fish Gross, it's definitely a lake people need to be careful on.
