At first glance I saw the 21 and 10 and thought you were talking about inches...then I noticed your # (pound) sign....Man soak it in...If this is your bad day I would like to fish with you on a good one... ;)

Don,do they get shallower when they spawn? Or do they do it in the deep?I know its easier for me to catch em when they spawn.

Don,

Nice Fish! What is the biggest you have taken out of the Gorge. I know there are lakers up to 60 pounds in there.

This may be top secret info, but what does your rig consist of? Do you jig spoons or tube jigs? What size to get down 90' and do you tip them with anything?

I've fished for lakers right at ice out and again in the fall, but have never really gone after them mid summer when they are deep. It's another presentation I need to become familiar with. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Sounds like you have them pretty well figured out.

Congrats!

Don,

I'm tossing around the idea of either heading back to Powell, or to try something new; never been to the Gorge.

If you had to pick a few days in either Sept, Oct or Nov, when would you go for the greatest odds in timing the pre-winter feed?

Don,

Those are some nice fish and it sure makes me miss fishing at the Gorge. Seems like everything you catch there is a step up from the typical sizes. What part of the lake were you fishing? Lucerne?

Glad you had a good trip.
