Steve, I have heard a lot about the LL's in Maine, but have never chased them. I'll have to add them to the list, I've read about 6 lb fish up there... I didn't see any fish of that size. I did however find a bigger fish that broke me off once the first afternoon, and then again the next morning... in the same slot of a tail out. Funny how it doesn't matter how many nice fish you net.... the obsession lies with the wicked strike, head shake, giant golden belly rolling in the middle of a boil, and then immediate slack line.... brain rattling... that was a huge fish... Huge.
