Even though it's been slow, I've been driven to get out and get after it lately as I'm leaving the West and moving to Maine in just a few days. Needless to say, I was stoked for a plan to mountain bike 24 miles round trip with my float tube to a lake that may or may not have been frozen with fish that may or may not have been eating.
Turned out to be worth it. Our best estimate was around 40 cutthroat, all but a couple were 3 lbs. or better and at least 10 were 20-22" gorged footballs. It was one of those days.
