Fished around Spider Island this past weekend and caught a bunch within the slot. In fact a buddy and I pretty much hit the limit. AM was the best for us. Used crawlers and harnesses and lindys. Most of the fish were caught shallower then 20'. Largest was a 29" :-) - I heard tell the bite was off this weekend but I didn't see any of that.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
