Weight goes up by approximately the cube of ratio (the size increases by length, width and thickness). The cube of 39/33 is about 1.65. A twenty pound fish would weigh about 33 pounds scaled up; an 18 pounder scaled up would weigh about 29.7 pounds.Anyways, would a 39" fish outweigh a 33" fish of the same species by 10-12 lbs?
Are those portable ladders or are they weighted or somehow secured/anchored to the lake bottom? I imagine with those waves kicking up anI am scared out there, but still go. I'm just smarter about it now........
The ladder thing was STRANGE to me at first but has functionality.
Firstly, you are up out of the icy water so you can fish longer. Secondly your back cast is higher up above the water for a max cast
I have wet-waded in the Fall for smaller fish. But the bigger spawner fish like the waves and ice water of Spring.
Since I learned this silly style, I have tried it on other icy lakes, right by an inlet channel.
If you want to OD on loneliness, drive to the east side of the lake and walk north a bit. No peeps there, just wild horses.....
It feels like a time warp out there..........hasn't changed since John Fremont gave it a white man name.
When I fished there, my guide brought along an aluminum ladder like you'd find at any home improvement store. It was not anchored. And not the sturdiest to cast from. When we got to a spot to fish, we'd open it and I'd climb up. Much further down the shoreline I saw some guys fishing from very tall and elaborate "ladders". I was too faraway to get a good look, but a couple had chairs at the top, kind of like a lifeguard stand at a swimming pool. I'm assuming those belonged to some regulars/locals.Are those portable ladders or are they weighted or somehow secured/anchored to the lake bottom?
you bet...I just checked their website and dont see the dayglo luminescent ones I used to use at night. those were deadly at night....yes, apparently you know just how deadly those are on big trout, whether its Steel or Cutt.
