Brown Trout - Mike McManus Party

Mike made his annual trip up to the lake to fish browns over the weekend. We could not asked for any better weather especially after all the wind we have been experiencing this spring. Saturday we found the fish tight to the shoreline, bringing the boards as tight as only a few feet of water, where Mike caught this "bute" thats heading for the wall! Later in the day the fish moved off into deeper water. A few fish were caught on Stick baits, but most were on stinger spoons, in natural colors.....the "Vampire" was the best. Mike and his crew were true sportsman catching and releasing all the shallow water numerous lake trout we caught.

Sunday we went out and the lake was flat calm.....no clouds. Caught one descent brown, but then it was like someone flipped a switch.......the fish I think were still around but certainly not biting like the day before. We had a couple other strikes during the day but that was it. We called around to ther boats in the area and they indicated the same thing.
