Wow. That's one heck of a Mack if it is true. I saw a picture of the 34 1/2 lb. Mack on the Machkinaw Board here and I thought that thing was huge!

I think it would have to be about 90 years old and I don't think the lake was there in 1915.

And let me guess it was a 100 degrees outside and snowing at the same time, and the guy who caught it was using a paperclip as a hook too. ::)

As far as anybody on the boards knows, there are no macs in Ice House.

Yeah I heard the story. Two guys went to Ice House. They had to walk 10 miles up hill to get to their secret fishing spot. First cast he fells a bite. He sets the hook and his drag goes crazy. Then all of a sudden his line snaps. He reaches out and grabs his line with superman like reflexes. For the next hour and a half he brings in this huge fish. The line cutting in deeper and deeper into his hand with every tug. With his hand still bleeding he picks up the fish so his friend can take a picture. The fish leaps out of his hands and eats the camera and part of his friends arm before they could even get the flash working. With the camera and part of his friends arm still inside the fish flops back into the water never to be seen again. Yeah its a great story

I'd believe that the dip#### telling the story has had about 45 beers!

Not only as far as "the Boards" go, but as far as the DFG, SMUD and FERC know there are no macks in Ice House. No records of plants since they built the dam, and no macks in test nets set as a part of re-licensing.

Definite BS.

Great first post by medicrob. He must be a troller. ;)

How easy would it be though to plant a species like a mac in ice house and just have it grow from maybe 3 or 4 lbs to 45??? LOL Constant food supply, little rainbows. After 6 or 8 years, the sucker is HUGE. Just a theory.

Well I guess that settles that fishing story, clearly BS. Thanks for the replies. :)

Easy to dump a mack in the water, very difficult to transport a mac, even from nearby UVR... They like cold, well-oxygenated water. You'd have to do it in the winter... Even then, you are talking a fish that has, at a minimum, been hooked or netted, stressing it. Bad idea, anyway.

Illegal idea also. >:(
