  1. We talked about it for a while, but finally, we entered ourselves into the round valley trout and lake trout contest and fished in the pea soup fog…. 30 minutes ...more in, we landed the biggest lake trout they’ve seen in a few years! The rest of the day sucked, honestly, but it didn’t really matter haha. 13lbs for the victory!

  9. 25 mph NW winds, 3 foot waves, spray over the bow won’t stop the mayhem aboard the Essential but catching another NJ Skillful Angler lake trout in Chris’s face will ...more get you a 2 month ban from the boat. ☹️ Score is 2-1 Squatch leading πŸ€ͺ
