FISHING — This 14.5 rainbow was caught over the holiday weekend off the Sun Cove Resort (509-535-7310) fishing pier at Clear Lake by Mike — he prefers to go only by his first name — one of the regulars who “catch fish like crazy,” said resort owner Brent Roundtree.

The fish was 31 inches long, caught on on a plain nightcrawlers, 6 pound mono line with no weights.

“There are 4 friends that come every Sunday and sit on the left side of the dock,” Roundtree said. “They catch so many fish that it frustrates, and baffles, everyone else. The fish can be completely turned off for 10 other people on the same dock… and they will get their limit every time. They grew up around here and know how to catch em. Week after week they do this.”
