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.

You would have wished to be around when we at AHT had our summer fish trip at Ashhurst and did our Crawdad Boil. It was the Best !!! Ranger Mike and his Wife did a Great job putting this on. Everyone that came contributed to the cook, The last year we had that camp, everyone ate their fill, and we ended up going to other camps in area and donating meals to our other campers in area. Gotta throw Fern into our Thanks, He had the Gigantic pot for the boil for us to use. Great Time to be had at AHT Group camps !!!
That was my first time meeting a lot of people from AHT, my wife and I came up just for the day and had the potluck. If I remember right it's Nate (CableGuy) who has the big pot and Camp Chef propane burner?

Nice catch @Savageman2506 , those are some beauties and you cooked up a righteous meal! I'm willing to bet your "nuts" didn't drop back down for a few days after being in that ice cold water! :ROFLMAO:
