Mallards pics of those beautiful rainbows from up north of the border got me to thinking. I guide for trout a good many times every year. I have posted a few reports on MFP from trout outings this year as well.
However, I haven't seen many, if any, other trout reports that I can recall. If you have been out this year and nailed some rainbows, browns, brookies, or lakers (I know, I know...lakers are technically a char species and not a trout...but still... they are fighters supreme!)..give us an update or report on your catches. Let some of us know what you caught them on and what type of water you were fishing.If you have a picture so much the better.
It seems we have been a little short on trout postings this year and Mallards pics brought it to my attention. So how about it...who has caught some trout this season?
YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME! That is the gahuna tuna of all rainbows. If I could go out and have a shot at as many of those as the article indicates these guys are nailing I might have to reconsider this whole muskie hunting thing I invest a bazillion dollars and hours into every year......well..maybe that is going a bit to far.
Actually, I can't believe I said that in my moment of weakness!
But no doubt that pulling in a bow of that size would put a weakness in your knees when you got it boatside. Caught on a 4 inch Mepps Cyclops (at least as memory serves)...hmm.
actually ...if mark's bow would have been another 1/2 inch longer we would have had to provide an actual video of the measuerment as well the written testamonies of the measurment! that was a great sea run trout on the pic provided no doubt there!!
