Blogger Len Harris asks for help with a trout puzzle

Can you see Sam's head peaking out of the weeds?

The hole is not very deep. Maybe 3.5 feet at max. The top of the hole necks down and really shallow. The bottom of the hole is a culvert about 2 feet deep and 4 feet wide oblong pipe that goes under the road.

The photo is taken upstream from the highway. I am standing where the culvert goes under the road.

Sam and I hit the hole at 7:30pm. This where the big broke him off about 2 weeks ago. She is about a 26 inch extremely fat female brown.

Sam's head is exactly where he hooked her before. Sam is seated in the above photo. On prior break off he was standing and it was 4 p.m.

Sam waited 2 hours for her to come out and she declined. Sam walked up to the culvert and dangled his worm in the opening a couple times. The third time she came blasting out of the culvert and attacked the crawler and went back in the culvert never to return this evening. I was watching from a distance and planned on being net man and photographer.

This trout is truly a puzzle.

How/when/with what would you attack this hole???
