    On the weekends we aren't attending a shoot we love to head out in pursuit of Lake Trout. My preferred method is downrigging. There is something about the humming sound of the downrigger cables slicing through the water and seeing a rod pop when the lure is pulled free of the release that really gets me fired up! And not to mention seeing fish come up on the graph making a beeline to the lures tracking across the screen then seeing that rod pop when the lines on the graph meet!

    We love fish though my wife doesn't like trout or salmon so I keep only a few trout each season. Most are released.

    Yeah yeah, What i am really interested in is what beer you are drinking.
    I can see the big blue cooler.

    No beer, I don't drink... My rear livewell is plugged for dry storage use to store tackle and other essentials and my front one gets used to put ice and bottled water in for cold drinks. The cooler is for the fish!
