Just finished several charters this week during the most intense heat I can remember. Temperature hit 100 in Charlotte, Vt. Lakers are still biting at the 80 to 90 foot level on the Glow Bellys. Caught some beauties on yesterdays charter. Lake trout 32inches and 13lbs 3 oz. We had a double charter as there were 9 customers so I had Captain Obe White helping out with his boat. They also caught a 13lb 2oz laker on his boat. Lakers are growing like pigs. Was a rough ride yesterday with a 25 mph South wind but we got it done. Woke the lakers up a little. We also caught one around 7 lbs that had 8 feet of line hooked to ice fishing hooks. Our lure was caught in the line hanging out of the lakers mouth and we dragged him in by the tail. Salmon shut off in the heat but they will turn back on when the temp drops back to normal. South wind was pushing up the cold water from the bottom. I will post pictures of the big laker later in the week.
