    Went to Wye lake (kitsap cty) with some frineds this morning. Around 9:30 I hooked into a large 20" rainbow. She was so big I couldn't get her into my net. One of my friends came over and gave me a hand to coral her. Biggest RB I have ever hooked in any lake except for Cady Lake.

    Would have like to release her but the battle pretty much did her in.

    In my excitement I forgot to mention that I was using #10 Olive Wooly Bugger with red cone head. Trolling just off shore. When the fish hit I thought it was a bass by the explosive way the fish hit the fly.

    Kudos on that fish. Nice hen. I've been by Wye once but wasn't able to fish it that day. It looks like a nice little lake to work with a float tube. It seems that often there are these little lakes that people have a habit of overlooking that manage to put out a nice trout or three.

    Hit that baby again, and give us another report!

    Tight Lines!

    I still have a problem with one of the bladders. One half still leaks but I am able to still use it by blowing up the outside side. So instead of having a margin of safty I fish like everyone else. one bladder each side.
