I was talking to a Game Warden about Hattie last year and he was telling me a friend of his caught either the biggest or second biggest laker in the derby last year. He said they stocked some brood fish from the Saratoga hatchery just before the derby and that they were dumb as a post. He caught a laker around 15 pounds in 4 feet of water with a big daredevil.
I hope you guys did good up there. post a report & let everyone know. that lake does grow some BIG bows' I
haven't been up there in the past couple of seasons, we
used to hit the plains lakes every so often & catch some nice fish, I've got a 7.5 lb bow on my wall from meebor.
tube jigs in the pumpkinseed color used to be the ticket?
hope ya had a good trip !!
