Nice fish. I have sat on that very spot on many summer nights drowning crawlers about 25-35 feet and pulling up some good trout. Gotta be comfortable with fishing deep water there.
I was actually free lining big sucker minners,,it was pretty slow and I put a split shot on and let it go down about 65 feet,in 80 feet of water,,just holding the line between my fingers,,whaen it took off it went down and out,,I would say when I set the hook it had well over 100feet of line out maybe 130,,it took quite a while to get him up and every time he seen the boat back down he went,,netted him 3rd trip up.
he swallowed the hook but wasn`t bleeding any so we cut the line and let him keep the hook,,hopefully it`ll go on through..
