Was out before work fishing almost to the very end of the dam.. (I try to get out everyday too throw a few lures out on the way to work) and trying out a new swimbait I have.. a 6" line through rainbow trout.. on my third retrieve i feel the hardest hit I have ever received on my heavy casting rod.. and the fight started... I was walking up and down those crazy rough rocks working on getting this monster in, and everytime I got him close to the rocks he would strip off another 100ft or so.. pulling like crazy.. I almost got him all the way in when he hit the top of the water and spit the hook... but after 30-45 minutes of trying to take this fish in I was done either way... So I will be back out this evening trying to get it in again.. I also saw lots and lots of smaller striper chasing my lure in everytime and I didnt have any small kast masters or antrhing with me or I would have tried to get a couple of those.. well happy fishing people
