Another excellent day yesterday. Several over 8 lbs.
Tigers: they fight very hard. Usually like a Brown, but sometimes jump several times like a 'bow. Lost one yesterday (~4 lbs) on his fourth jump when he jumped a full five feet and shook the hook out. I almost put down my rod and applauded. Fantastic! He really wanted his freedom.
Another fantastic day at Twin Lake for Tigers. We used P Quads when trolling, and Chironomid techniques when anchored. Both worked very well. Several Large Tigers caught as well as a host of 15-18"
Boy, are we spoiled! R. did not catch a fish last evg after supper and was a little pissed despite having caught ~ 30 lbs of fish earlier. He caught two 8 pounders this AM to compensate, however. :-).
Cannot believe yesterday. Learned two chironomid techniques and both resulted in huge fish. Caught two at or greater than 10 lbs and several "small" ones only 6-8 lbs. Best day ever. Biggest brown ever! Going to "trophy" lake today. Will see if that gets even bigger ones.
Quick report: weather is very benign. No bugs, max wind ~ 10 Mph. Fishing very good. R. got a 6 lb Brown as well as two nice 'bows yesterday. G. caught the 'bow of his life >10 lbs - had to land it on shore as was far too big for his net. Others caught lots too. Today, new lake (Patterson) and more Chronomid technique. Worked very well yesterday. D. and I also caught several nice ones - but no "hogs" yet. Much better conditions than last Fall.
