WHACK-ITY...SMACK-ITY

We put a hurtin' on the fish, fishing Lake Champlain for Landlocked Atlantic's and Brown Trout this week-end.

Cathy piloted the boat Saturday...
We netted 13 Landlocks and lost three others.
A banner day considering this spring has been slower than normal.
A few are destined for the smoker.
Cathy's first day on the water this year and it was PERFECT!

The Brown Trout stayed elusive...
until Sunday aboard the Running&Gunning.
A couple good eater chunky footballs found their way to the net.

Then another nice Landlocked.
Again...
I fell just short of a qualifier for the Vermont Master Angler Program.
For the second time this year.

Total for the day, six or seven Landlocks and two Brown Trout.

And I loved the new Cannon Rod with the Daiwa 17LC I put on it!
Today's outing has been cancelled...
got a hard blow going on.

Fishing Lake Champlain for Landlocks, Brown's or Steel-head?
Be sure to pack some Honeybee's, they're hard to beat!



Fish on, fish H8 me.
