I went out on the kayak the other day and found a bunch of agressive gills in deep water (25'-30') off a weed edge. Took several 8 inchers for a meal but also got this beauty that was just shy of 11". Released it to swim again. See More

"The lake does not have an access site nor is it private. It is on National Forest land and there is a path to the lake from a nearby dirt road. I'm going to try it again tomorrow and see what else I can learn about what lives in there."
