Going to be camping with my wife for our anniversary at Alder Lake Park. Dragging our drift boat with us. Since Mineral Lake is close by, figured I'd give it a whirl. I hear there's some monstrous triploids, as well as some nice browns. Can anyone offer up any advice?

Grats on another year of her putting up with you.;)

Good morning/evening type lake. F&G plants a lot of fry in there that ends up as food for the big fish. Bait patterns trolled/stripped around the shoreline on a sinking line.

Watch out for the otters. They like to steal fish.

That's my kind of lake fishing...but you already knew that.

Fished the lake all day on Tuesday. Slow trolled brown and olive bead head Wooly Buggers on sinking lines around the shoreline. Kept hooking tiny largemouth bass on the olive Bugger. Managed to hook quite a few rainbows in the 10"-12" range and lost a really nice brown right at the boat. Also hooked into something that nearly spooled my reel. Wasn't able to get it close enough to see it before it came unbuttoned, but whatever it was, it was huge.
