    The trip was great! My son Alex caught his biggest brown a 20.5" nearly 3 lbs it was the last fish of our 14 fish limit. No lakers again ,the last stocking was in 2001 so I'm thinking there may not be any left. We caught browns,brooks, and rainbows most 10"-15".Trolling was tough from friday on because of the wind. Action was slow but we probably ended up catching 60-70 among the four of us. The last day we found out the trout were within inches of the bank under the trees eating bugs and caterpillars blown in by the wind.the weather was awesome ,usually it rains something fierce.As for Watauga we are planning to go up on free fishing day in June.Last year we caught 6 lakers,all about 2.75lbs.We have hooked and lost a couple of monsters on past trips.
  2. TM, I have been twice since I have posted anything. I get a hit every now and then but not as much schooling as I saw the first time. Water was 56 degrees and windy. I have not given up and will keep taking trips as I can. One concern I have is alot of the Kokanee lures have double hooks. I like treble myself but did not know if you had modified some of your lures or do you not have a preference. Is it legal to tip with corn? Do you have to have a trout stamp to fish? I have one just in case but thaught I would askyou? Thanks H

    Harpoon Bear definately has walleyes we usually catch one or two on summer and fall trout trips downrigging.We never get more than that but don't really target them,but when one is in the net it will soon be covered in zatarans fish-fry and swimming in hot oil. A few have been 19"-20" and maybe two pounds.Last Sept. we found a ball of shad near the dam and picked up trout ,largemouth,bream ,and walleyes from under the shad.I'm hoping to get to Bear this weekend if all goes well.Do you have any Nantahala trips planned?
