sightings of big rainbows

on August 24th

At the far end of the lake from the road in. Big rock on left side... high water - early summer. lots of fat slow 2" minnows in the waters along the shore. Two at least 8 lb. healthy rainbows in the shallows under the drifting bark and branches in that end of the lake... in maybe 3' water right under me as I jumped rocks to get the that big rock... thought they must be carp until I got a glimpse of their red stripe along their side from above, good girth apparently, dark green back, spots.. my brother a few feet away on the shore... whispered to him ...get the net... then they scoot off.. They are there... and apparently after the dark little fat chub like minnows... tried the baits we had... not prepared for these in this small lake - no bites.
