Caught 2 at chatty last summer, one on a gulp minnow, and one on a half digested shad a smallie puked up in my boat,... both in the upper teens lb wise. Hella fight and I gotta say the cold water ones her are not near as disgusting as back home (Phx). In those desert lakes in the summer they stink to high heaven,and have weird lessions on em (warm water breeds bacteria),... frickin disgusting. The 2 last summer were big, pristene, and fought hard! Beats sittin around not catching anything:-\Filthy beasts. I don't see why people intentionally fish for them.
Not that I would ever go out targeting them,... but can see why some would.
