Hit it o dark 30, Trolled for 3 hour without a hit. Set up around the boat rental area to drift some crawlers, Inflated. Nothing for 10 mins then Bam, fish hits and takes off, 3 or 4 minutes later I see a big fish on the other end very nice trout, so I really take my time and a few minutes later fish in the net. It's a brute, but you can tell it's a planter, No Tail, But the shoulders on this fish, it was 24" L at it's widest point 7" girth and then went down to 2" by it's tail as you can see in the images. I tried to gets weight but the shack was closed, So I assume 6+ pound Easy.

Get my line back in the water 1/2 hour later same rod goes off and it feels pretty good, get it to the boat, 20" catfish, released. Another bite hear and there nothing sticking. Troll around for a few more hour for nothing, threw everthing at them.

Great day out there a little slow, just good to be out. The place was packed with bankers and about 8 boats. No one seemed to get alot of fish that I could see or hear, but there where some fish being caught.
