Had a few minutes between holiday commitments so I stopped by at the marina. The air temperature was in the 40's and that fact brought out a large group of fishermen. Several fish had been caught in the morning at first light. Most of the fish were again caught using brown trout spawn suspended with a bobber above the bottom. I saw a nice fish lost at the hole while they were trying to land the fish. It looked like the hook just slipped out of the fish's mouth. The gaff was not near the fish at the time and the angler played the fish perfectly
