Catchin Lots of Fish

By moose

The last few days have been excellent! Stan and his group from Dallas were out spinfishing this week. They caught around 60 to 70 fish per boat! Stan had the largest, a 4 lb brown, it was a fat chunky male that was well colored. Between the two boats,several browns were landed, but the majority were very healthy rainbows with several in the 17 to 19 inch range! Several of the rainbows weighed in at  2 lbs plus! It seems the hot baits were small river minnows, stitched on the hook. All in all it was a great day for everybody!

Dan and Rita were also out with Carl and they had a great day! Rita was a little under the weather,  however all the "catchin" made her feel a lot better. Stan and his group {3 generations} took a few fish over to the 178 Club and had them prepare them for dinner, they said they were excellent. Everybody is out again today and a new group from Fort Smith! Andy Anderson and his pastor and wife are enjoying a great day. Stan is also a pastor, so this is "the week of the preachers"! There has been some gentle ribbing going on with a methodist and baptist preacher under the same roof.

The Alabama group is out for a half day, and they are looking for rainbows. We will expect some good numbers with near perfect weather and water conditions. I'll report on them later, right now I am going to watch some deer and turkeys under my feeder!!
