Got up to Crane early this week, with my closest friends, before the “grayness”. The weather was outstanding and so was the fishing. Many fish to hand…but wait…where are those mongo cranebows?
One angler had the misfortune of hooking one and of course….it wrapped around a log. That fish was the only fish we hooked of “mongo” size. However, the day was great for fish in the 10-15 inch range. They were all very scrappy and represented the larger cranebows quite well.
A slow retrieve with smaller leech or bugger patterns provided much success. We also indicator fished with balanced leeches….they worked!
The weekend cloud cover should provide some excellent angling for those who go!
Get out there!
