Piker Day - Part 2

It was a Friday to remember, got to the lake at about 3 PM and fished till about 7 PM with my buddy Jean. Caught and released over 50 fish each, about 1/2 of them in the 12 to 15 Lb range.
Tried every fly swap fly and caught at least one fish on each fly. Saturday was slower but we still managed to hook & release well over 50 fish between us in about 5 hours fishing. Several were "pounders" as we call them, anything over 15 lbs. qulaifies because they just pound the heck out of your rod and your arm.
One fish came in at 19 1/2 Lbs., a real thrill and beautifull (if you can call them toothy critters beauties). Got to get back there tomorrow or Tuesday for a few more days.
Roop, I sure hope that little mouse is worth it! because you are missing out on one of the best springs we have had for sevrela years. Many lakes are reporting great fishing with many "pounders" some in the 18 to 20 lbs.
