I was going through some old photos this afternoon and came across this gem. This is the day before the 1st treatment of Lake Davis to eradicate the Northern Pike problem, and one of the nicest rainbows I have taken from the lake. This bad boy went 24.5 inches and 5.5 pounds. My close friends and I had a funeral that day, we placed a headstone marker complete with two pike hanging off it in the Mosquito Slough area. We prayed, and kissed the lake good bye before heading home with limits of fish - We thought it was best if these fish saw the smoker instead of the rotenone. The rainbow took a pistol pete, which is a wooly bugger with a gold prop on the front.
