Cotton has been plagued with hammer handles since I can remember and that would be in the 50s. They recently put in a slot limmit and we are starting to get some larger ones now.

I see you love sunfish too heres something to try

scale and half only then put them in cold water till firm

then with a butter knife scape the skin (you'll be a mazed)

I do this two times and then do the ribs (ribs come out real

nice) and have you ever fished the lake inside the island and do you fly fish for sunnies? smile.gif jim

Jim,

The lake in the island is shallow and freezes solid every winter. If there was a chanel to the main lake it would make a good bay to fish early in the season. My brother brought a fly fishing buddy up from the cities a couple weeks ago. It looks like a lot of work and it's hard to keep the worm on the hook with all that back and forth stuff. You will have to provide more info as I don't understand your sunfish cleaning thing. I usually scale, head and gut,and pull the fins.
