First he fished at the corner.
|Yuki at the corner of the inlet|
|Another lake picture.|
|Yuki deeper into the inlet|
While he was casting and removing green junk off his sinker and hook, I rigged up my little Okuma the same way and started over in the inlet.
It wasn't long before I hooked this little brown.
|Closer so you can see how little.|
|Lake look familiar?|
So, after a thousand throws (isn't a Brown the fish of a 1000 casts? OK maybe not.) with crickets and I even threw several Kastmasters, I returned to the inlet. Understand, I'm only able to cast out about 10 feet. A BB split shot doesn't give you a lot of throwing power.
After several casts, I hooked into one that I thought I'd never land. It ran and ran and ran and all the time I was yelling "Yuki, net". After five minutes of fighting I brought a HUGE Brown to hand.
|Being as careful as I could.|
|Wet hands to pick it up for a photo.|
|Anybody have a forklift?|
|My biggest Brown to date|
Those, unfortunately, were the only two fish of the day and I was the luck one to catch them (The Yuki hex?). We're going to give it another shot next week. Maybe I'll let Yuki do all the fishing.
Oh, on the way home we stopped at Munnerlyn's for an ice cream cone.
