Hey everyone.

Sorry this is a day late. I wasn't home enough yesterday to post. I got to Quincy with two buddies and we rented a boat (those red Lunds they have are nice) at 8, We didn't even stop to fish until I had rowed us to the back side of the island. We tied up in a foot or two of water and fished into the deeper water. After thirty minutes I caught a beautiful 18 inch rainbow on a bitsy tube (green). We moved along the back bank for awhile and there is a piece of wood floating that I think is chained down?? My friend cuahgt a rainbow just as big as mine on a blue fox pink and blue color. The other friend didn't catch anything. We fished until 12 without another bite and headed in. On the way in the ranger boat pulled us up and it was DOW guys doing something and we talked to them for a bit. I think they were maybe checkin cuz they stalked like 5000 trout a few weeks ago...correct me if im wrong. They were talking about tiger muskie situation and said they found a 38' and a 41' washed up on the shore from getting hooked in the gills and they took them in to be aged. Anyway, that's my day.


Good luck.

P.S. Both fish went back to swim another day. My fishless friend kept beggin to keep one but I said he had to "catch his own damn fish" if he wanted one.
