Friday: got a late sart fished for about two hours at lake george caught 4 because i was a little pre occupied with the bear only about 20 feet from me.
we then left george and had lunch fished the owens for a litle bit and lost count how many i caught

Saturday: fished george again for a couple of hours and one native trout on a thomas bouyant and right as we were leaving we see the bear again eating some trout. went out later that evening for about an hour and caught 5 fish

Sunday: went to convict fish for about two hours with 1 fish and then found the sweet spot and landed 12 trout in about an hour and had to leave.

Monday: convict lake drove and slept most of the day but went out late for about two hours first hour got 3 fish fish then it went wide open and ended up with 13 then it got dark.

tuesday: got up early caught one on my first cast nice sized fish but then only got two little ones after
then at about 9 it went wide open and ended up with 22 in a couple of hours released all but seven which we ate for dinner and another guy offered to buy my stuff but did not have enough
then my mom hooks into a monster so my dad took over and when it got close to shore it looked like about an 7-8 pounder but broke the line right at shore and i weent in after it with the net and just bareley missed the beast.

Congratulations, those are some excellent looking fish, and some really great numbers.

It's a good thing you missed that big fish with the net. If a DFG warden saw you net it you'd get a big fine.

Were those your goods the bruin was decimating?
People, that's why you aren't supposed to keep food in your tent.

I'm sorry, it just sounded like the line had snapped BEFORE the fish was in the net.

You cannot net a fish if it isn't on the hook and line, even if you fought it for 24 hours. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Well, that sucks you lost a monster, but it happens. But in the end, looks like you guys had a great time.
