Title: Told toy shooda came along.

 ;D
We went ling fishing last night, It was kinda like a perfect storm. Warm light winds moon rise in the AM and almost a new moon. Got there before sundown to get set up in the light, always lots of crap to carry in when we ling fish. Heaters lanterns chairs food ( Beer, No don't drink much )tackle you know the essentials for a night time fishing fest. As the sun disappeared the ling started there nightly food raid. It's like then come out of there hidey holes in waves. When one gets a bite we all get bites, any food laying on the river bottom must get eaten by the hoard. We turned back most the ling and a lot of the trout which are collateral damage, other wise we would be finished fishing the first hour. One of my buddy's came up from Butte with a friend of his he also had his girl friend come from town. I had a buddy from here and he brought his soon to be son in law.
Fish on rang out on the up stream fisherman then it rang out one to the other we all had ling on. Again and again, Most of the night. the occasional rainbow and brown swept up in the frenzy. There is a slot on trout you can keep three with only one over 18". At night with sucker meat , we had to keep track how many we kept, they where all over 18. The ling which we all got 8 or 9 each ( released most ) ranged from 12" to 31". At about ten the east wind came up and the fish stopped with in a few minutes. We hung on till 11:00 PM and caller her a night. Good thing my Butte guys had an 8:00 class back in Butte. Glad it was them and not me the 45 minute drive I had was bad enough . To bad no BSB boyz could attend...
Some Pics.

 O0 Wow! That's some awesome fishing, D! I bet you have some great eating there. I sure like your pictures, too.

Is that fish run usually just a one night affair?

Wow! Great fishing only 45 minutes from home! Is it sometimes hard to decide which to do, hunt or fish?
