Wow! Did we catch big fish. My fishing partner Herb Leuthe and I had a ball with Lake Athabasca lake trout last week. All but a few small ones for shore lunch were released. Most fish were 10-25 pounds. Best day 80 fish.

Here are some pictures of Herb, Jay (our guide), and myself:

I caught most of my fish using an old red Ambassdeur 5000 reel. It was too cold for the fish to hit surface lures. I am going back next year when the big pike are hitting Zara Spooks! They tell me it is easy to catch 20-pound pike on surface lures in July.

I am looking for someone to share expenses with to this wonderful fishery next year. Just email back for details.
