Day 3 Frenchmens
Never fished here nor has Mark, got to lake around 8am to fog and temps in the 20's, with snow on the banks. Trolled in a circle for the first 45 mins, as we couldn't see thru the thick fog and didn't know were we were going and if there was any structure out there. The fog stared to lift and we we able to see enough to manage our way around towards the dam.
It was alot thicker than this

Probably just holdovers. When they plant the trout usually have rounded tails, then if the fish can avoid being taken home for a year or 2 their tail starts to get a more natural point. Man so far this sounds like a trip of a lifetime. Now on to day 4.
