The Cold Hunt for Trophy Grayling

Low (temps) and Slow

A nice Grayling (Feather_Flinger on the stick)

We fish a lot of lakes that change from year to year. Whether it's water levels, winter fish kill or other factors, we usually keep close tabs on lakes and do re-con trips to see how things are progressing. So when we have the opportunity to fish one of our nemesis lakes that had been putting out some good (like really good) sized Grayling -- and some decent Brookies -- we packed the boats and headed out.

It didn't go so well. But then, it did.
