We went today and it started out really nice like it was forecasted to. Low wind, sunny and then the wind that was not supposed to blow started to blow and then it quit blowing and started to howl. We managed 9 decent legal trout and I did catch one mule.

43" long and some where over 35 to 40+ pounds. I never did get a good weight on the boga. I was so tired from fighting it in I couldn't hold it up long enough to get a good weight on it but I did see it was was well past the 35 mark. Caught it on a Deadly Dudley Mauler Shrimp under a cork. Caught it on my spinning rig so it took a little while to get it in. It got about half of the 300yd spool of 20# Power Pro in a couple of runs before I finally started to gain a little on it. The fish was so exhausted that it took several minutes of TLC to revive it but it swam off really strong.
