I fished from roughly 630 to 1 yesterday for lakers. It was supposed to be windy and snow-filled and it didn't disappoint. I got two lakers on the lucky craft flash pointer and one on a generic kastmaster. I was by myself but luckily there was a guy there that was willing to take a couple pics for me. I've been really wanting a big laker so I spent a decent amount of time throwing the 6inch bbz1 and the 168 river2sea s waver swimbaits. On one of the retrieves, the s waver felt like it got stuck. Then it began to budge just a tad. Either I had foul hooked a decent trout or a nice one had taken my lure. Even on my swimbait setup with 25lb line, it felt strong. After about five seconds, the hook popped. I don't think I got a good hook set because I had a brace on my wrist. It was a bummer but I the three trout I landed were decent. I'll be thinking about what was on the other end of the line for a while. I continued to throw my swimbaits but my shimano Cardiff wasn't doing well in the cold and moisture and eventually it froze up. I need to get a baitcasting reel that can handle the crappy weather because not being able to throw the big stuff after losing one was a huge letdown. The biggest was 23 but they were all pretty close.
