It's that time of year

With warm temperatures through most of the month of September, water temperatures on the big lake have hung in the low to mid 60s right through the end of the month.  Normally I would have guessed that this would keep those big, chrome Brown Trout out of the shallows but it hasn't been the case.  After spending some time out in the Islands looking around a few spots, there's already some very nice fish around.  Based upon what I'm seeing, there's going to be some very, very nice Brown Trout caught this year.  They seem to just be getting bigger, and bigger.  Yesterday, I hooked one, and lost, that I'm still thinking about.  It's actually been quite a while since I've lost a fish and have been really bummed about it, but this one is still haunting me.  That big lake takes a long time to cool down, which means fishing should be great for a long time this fall.
