"Lucky" is the name of the Mackinaw Lake Trout worth $35,000 to a lucky angler if they catch him. Although other tagged fish are worth $100 and $500, even the freebies are fun to catch.
If you are new to this blog, I'm talking about the annual "Mac Days" fishing tournament now in progress at Flathead Lake. The lake's trout population numbers in the hundreds of thousands and they are not native to Montana waters. The purpose of this semi-annual tournament is to help reduce the Mac population. The emphasis is on catching huge numbers of fish.
For all the rules and to read up on who is catching what and where, visit the Mac Days website. Mac Days is sponsored by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.
Good luck to all you fishermen on this last weekend. Save some for me!
