fished ruedi yesterday from 7AM to 4:45 PM. It was post front kind of, and that is the worst condition for lakers possible. I caught 8 lakers from 15-18". They were usually in 36-44 FOW, so a little shallower than usual. I also caught a 14" cutthroat trout. Lost a decent laker, probably 22" or so. I lost about 15 lakers after hooking them (I was using a huge lure for there, a 4" tube). so if I was using a proper lure for there, a 2.5" white tube, I probably would've caught at least 20. I don't care though, the small ones just had problems getting it in their mouths and I don't want the small ones anyway. Just going for the big ones, which didn't show up. The best thing to do was to get them off of the bottom with your vexilar. Make them chase the tube 3-4 feet off and they will just stare at it and never hit. Then, drop it back to the bottom when they are still looking at it, and they would turn around, go down, and hit it pretty much every time. My brother caught 8 macks 14-18" and my dad caught 4 macks 15-18". My bro also caught a 8" rainbow and my dad caught 15 rainbows 10-14" and also a 12" kokanee. Ice was 5" thick pretty much all over at freeman and it was solid. We kept 12 macks (4 a piece, the limit). Trout were biting well in 10-15 fow, according to my dad, and that is also where he got the koke. Tipped all lures with anchovie and salmon egg smelly jelly.
