I like the suggestion of posting some of the lakers from the fish board last year. It was an impressive year. However, let me be clear that these fish can be caught all year. It just becomes much more of a challenge and one has to venture out of the bay to find them later in the year. The early spring bite is appealing because the fish are shallow, they are close to the lodge, and one can use light tackle. All of the following lakers however were caught in very deep water in August (Yes, trout are the exception when it comes to adjusting their bladder but they do require some attention to release them back to deep water). Unlike the spring, you are not going to "accidentally" catch lakers in the fall. You have to be targeting them and not many people are doing that. Thus the board won't show as many lakers other then in the spring. Nothing is a guarantee. That's why they call it "fishing" rather than "catching". However for the last 3 years the professors gone wild have had great success with the day we set aside to catch lakers late in August.
