Re: Boone lake
Those larger wipers always amaze me. They have an incredible ability to shake a hook loose. You always have to decide if you want to use a regular hook so the lure will run right, or use a larger hook in case a large fish comes along. Last weekend I didn't catch a thing, but the guy on back of my boat caught a nice sized wiper. After a few minutes, it swam away. When he brought the lure in, one of the hooks on the treble had snapped off. The lure was right out of the box. Same day I lost one. It was on for a few, then it was not. I think most of the fish in my favorite lake are about three or maybe four years old this year. I'm thinking that will put them in the 7-9 pound class overall, and some larger. I better consider changing out my hooks.
