Species:Lake Trout

Date Caught: 07/31/2011

Kept / Released: Kept

Region of Catch: Region 3

Length: 39"

Weight: 21

Lure / Bait used: Lure | T4 Purple Glow Flatfish

We were out trolling for Lake Trout on Lake Chelan guided by Darrell & Dad's Family Guide Service on a sunken ridge when the fish bit on the poor man outrigger's rod. The lure was a Worden's T4 Flatfish in purple glow. We were fishing it right on the bottom in 135 feet of water when it bit. It took quite a while to gain line but eventually we got a net under her. She hung 21 pounds 3 ounces on the scale.
