Looks like LippRipper and I are heading up to Bucks this Saturday for a few hours. I plan on targetting Macks all day and will land the new lake record before the day is out ;D.

If anyone else is heading up there, keep an eye out for two younger guys in a 14' Aluminum with STARS, and say hi.

Good luck for Macks. My friend Doubleheader was just up there this past weekend. He caught nothing but Kokes on the troll and with practically everything he threw at them, including nightcrawlwers. He only caught three (I think) rainbows while baitfishing with Powerbait and worms. Fish were in the top 15-20ft of water at the time. Looking forward to your report.

Wel... No record Mack :'( :'( :'(...

But, we did have a great time and caught a good variety of fish. We started the day trolling deep with large Rapalas looking for some Mack action. We were marking fish between 40 and 50' regularly and had the riggers set to 35' and 45'. After about an hour of that with only one trip on my F-11, we decided to go after the Kokes. Kokes were much tougher yesterday than they had been a few weeks ago when I was up there. They were jumping ALL around us but didn't seem to be hungry, at least not for what we had ;D. I think they have something else on their mind right now ;). We were able to catch a few. Most were in the 10"-12" range with only two above that at around 14". About noon, we decided to go after the rainbows and browns. We hit the shallows and Lipp had a nice rainbow on in a matter of minutes. Or confidence up, we trolled the Mill Creek area and then out towards the dam with only one more rainbow (mine). Spent about 3hr.s on the trout only pulling in one more, and it was a tiny brown. Loaded up about 3:30 and headed home.

The weather was awsome for the large majority of the day. We arrived at the lake about 8:30 to find a light dusting of snow on the ground and the peaks around us. Water was glass and there was zero wind. About 11:30, the wind started gusting and we began to have a few quickly passing rain showers. It was a mix of sun and rain for the rest of the afternoon with much more sun than rain ;D.

Water temp was 57 deg. on the surface. We both had trouble finding any consistant lure or color, but red seemed to be working maybe a little better than other colors.

LippRipper got a few pic.s on his phone, but that's about it. Unless we can figure out how to get them posted, there won't be any.

BTW... I used about 1000 words. Isn't that worth 1 pic.? ;D
