Jeff took the day off to hit Pyramid (thanks for sharing your day with us, it's appreciated!) "Got a dozen today and polar opposite of last week, all but one under an indicator on a red midge. The big boy took a black bead head bugger. Ironically it was a very, very slow morning. The wind and waves never arrived until about 10 a.m. and although I got big boy a little before that, I never hooked another fish until after noon." The big one.. 11 pounds per a calc program. "All I know is that he took me half way into my backing within fifteen seconds of hooking him and didn't stop until I started to get nervous with a very tight drag and forced him to pump the brakes a bit. It was exhilarating for me. I've never brought a Pyramid fish this big to hand. I believe I've had a few on but only speculation. Made our day!!!"

Congrats on a nice one Jeff!
