They're finally opening roads up here in Flag. That means I can finally go out and do a little fishing. After some tips from a member or two here on where to go, I took off to Ashurst and caught my limit in about two hours.

At one point I dropped my multitool, which belonged to my late grandpa who taught me how to fish, into the lake. You better believe I emptied all my pockets and got in the water to get it back! Took 20 minutes feeling around with my feet and hands at times, waist deep in rocky cold water, but I got it back.

15-17 inch fish, all caught from shore. Had a good time, and I'll be eating fresh fish for dinner!

Here's a comparison betweenca deboned fillet off of a 17" fish versus a 15" fish. It makes a big difference.
