    Here is all the nay sayer's proof they can make it over the dam at Yates. Hooked up to him on 4 pound mono and a 5 foot ultra light rod... You could say it was a bit sketchy. 30 minutes later managed to land him! 0502181148b.jpg

    I hooked one of those many years ago on the Paint but wasn't so lucky in landing it. Congrats.

    Was fishing near the dam this afternoon. Saw a nice steelie trying to make the jump. Saw him twice, and he almost made it. He'll get there.

    Was this taken last year? I don't think they're in the river ATM. They probably made their way back to the lake
