    I have gone up there 3 times now in the last 2 months and each time I did well. I never used a 'baitfish' pattern. I did the very best on a size 10 clown leech and a size 6 carey special.

    My bro in law was throwing streamers trying to catch one of the large browns and he caught nothing in two days of fishing with it.

    That doesnt mean that what I was using is the only thing that will catch fish and it also doesnt mean the streamers wont. But, that is how it turned out.

    Can't say that I've been up there recently, but Mickey Finns in the shallows on summer evenings have pulled out a few browns for me. Not helpful now, but though it would be fun to jump in and harass anyway...

    Imagine that little Dan-Dan...someone else had luck with a plain old Mickey Finn. Ever think about the size and profile of the baitfish in the lake? :hmmm:

    Hey wayne, you should stop rubbing in the fact you catch a shitload of fish at pass, I never denied you that. Slim, sparse minnows eh?

    I've gotten them on slim sparse and big and orange. Check out the 2006 Sculpin swap. My orange sculpin has taken some nice sized fish out of Pass.

    Not rubbing it in young man, just trying to make you aware of something...If they aren't into the Big Mac on a particular day try an appetizer. Why aren't you in school!? LOL

    I like using big streamers and bunny leeches in the winter. Haven't been up there in a few weeks though, with all the crapy weather.

    If anyone is interested--and only because I am physically unable to fish these days--I am willing to tie and mail a couple of buggers I use only for browns to anyone planning on fishing Pass Lake. These woolly buggers have worked like gangbusters in another lake I've fished. I'm kind of dying to see if they work elsewheres. Any takers? I'm willing to supply only two anglers with three flies a-piece. Beyond that, people have to share.

    PM me.

    No mas. Hendersonbaylocal and mat1226 were the first to bite. They now owe me a report. If you run into those guys there, you might be able to bum a bugger off of them. Otherwise, go to my gallery to see the fly.
