hit rampart again -- had to burn some vacation. took the boat and trolled all day. the final tally between my self and a friend:
Landed 7 rainbows
Landed 5 Lake trout
Lost 2 nice lakers at the boat (in the 3 - 4 lbs range -- estimated)
1 million hits without a hook up -- damn lakers can peel a garden hackle right off the hook

kept 3 trout and 4 lakers

trout in the 14 inch range -- nice and fat
Lakers were all clones at just a hair over 17

Docks not in -- Bring you waders to stay dry while launching

The view makes it worth it

What were you using for the lakers? What area of the lake were you fishing? Sounds like you did alot better on this trip, starting to figure them out.

We caught all of the slimers close to shore -- about 30 feet of water. all of the lakers came out of the center of the lake -- 100 --160 feet deep. Man is this  a deep lake and there are alot of fish in it.  the water temp is cold -- it hurt my hands to put them in the water.

We trolled worms (aka garden hackles) behind cowbells on lead core with 4 colors out -- so that equates to about 15 -20 feet deep.
