John,

Did you wade beyond the fish then cast back toward the bank to them? Post spawn fish? Or, are those fish in all likelyhood males?

The flats there are huge phone, so in most cases the fish could be cruising all around us. Our favorite shots were the really shallow ones casting back at the shoreline but the water was only knee deep a few hundred feet from shore, so we had to keep our eyes peeled.

There were still quite a few fish spawning, which helped us locate the groups. The great lakes fish are so aggressive that several times we had small males break away from the females to chase and eat our flies. Don't see that out here in OR! Most of the fish we caught weremmales, but we did catch a few of the larger females. Wendy landed a 23 lber and I broke one off at the net that was high 20s, possibly 30.

Unique experience for me, seeing such aggressive carp.
