    Three generations fishing at one time

    Congrats to all of you! Glad that you all had a good time. Can't wait to see the bass photos!

    Mouse bite

    I'm assuming that you are tying these yourself. Are they commercially available for those of us that are not tiers?

    I'm a bad man! May have even jay walked a few times. I don't care! I follow my own path!😔

    Sunglasses ?

    Jimi would fish a spinning reel with the reel on top and using his right hand to reel😂!
  5. Glad that you guys had cooperative trout. Very nice! Would love to have some photos to go with your report. Regardless congrats on your success! I will concur that I was put off a bit with the mix of fish from many regions all itogether in some of the big tanks. I think that I really liked the smaller regional tanks like the South American fish area better just because they were true to that region.

    Mouse bite

    Congrats on your White river browns! That's an impressive total of quality fish on a pretty heavily fished section of river! I tend to throw jerkbaits for browns, but have considered a mouse if I could fish at night. Had a trip fall through this last spring where I was planning to fish some traditional big fish holes at night. I hope to see some more of your big browns. Keep posting.

    Mouse bite

    Yes there are at least 20 species of dogfish (Squalus) species. The one that I would like to catch is the spiny dogfish.

    Mouse bite

    I never verified this, but an old friend said that his dad and buddies would take small cats and fish for tiger sharks in the Gulf of Mexico off of Texas coast.

    Mouse bite

    That is a beast of a brown trout! Congrats! I have thought about using a mouse fly on the Current at night. One of the guys here in Maryland caught a 30 inch brown on a mouse fly. I also knew a guy that would tie a hook to a live mouse, put it on a Styrofoam raft and send it out for bass. Once it got out far enough he would jerk the mouse off of the raft. Not sure how legal that was at the time. Certainly would not be a PETA approved bait. Don't ask me about cats .

    What's Cooking?

    Ok this is the last meal that I felt was OAF worthy. My Betterhalf was cleaning out the freezer some more and pulled chicken thighs and legs. She was going to make soup. I gave her some thoughts on an Italian Hunter stew - chicken cacciatore. She browned the chicken in olive oil in a dutch oven. she removed the chicken and then sauted diced onion, green and red peppers, and sliced garlic in the oil. One the onions were translucent and the peppers softened a bit, she added slices of chanterelle mushrooms. She put the chicken back in the dutch oven, added crushed tomatoes, and sauce, basil and oregano, then about 1/2 cup of chardonnay. Simmered for about 30 minutes till the meat fell on the bone. Served over rice.

    I have got to see this. Let me know when you are going to make this happen.

    Trip Tuesday

    That is an awesome example of a naturalized McCloud river rainbow! Just shows that there is new recruitment even with the droughts the last couple of summers. Now that is a great fish. A southern redbelly dace! Thanks for posting some great photos! Wish I could get back to Crane! See any pickerel?

    Have three at least three and maybe a fourth at Folly farm😁. Packed the bow for the move. Most likely safe from two legged predators.

    Longear Sunfish #2

    I would hate to tell you that you're wrong but I don't hate it😁. NASCAR avg speed 130.453 mph at Daytona versus Indycar (not F1 buddy there was actual passing) 149.737 mph at Iowa. Far more driver skill needed to race at faster speeds when you can't just push your way to the front.

    Got a 410 and now a pelletgun from family. I have to get relatives like those. Got any to spare buddy?!? I didn't get out for any squeals this year. Love those tender little guys. Congrats! Sure that the fall rabbits should be scared as well!

    Another White river brown 7/15

    Great brown trout! Congrats! About the cold, you have to love having to soak the boat and then shake it to get it unfrozen and off the trailer😁. I'll be working to get to the White for Jigfest. Would love to meet you and maybe get to fish with you. Maybe a side trip for cutthroats.

    Can't watch the taxi cab demolition derby races😌!

    Longear Sunfish #2

    A friend of mine "collects" race tracks that he has been to and seen races. He and I were talking about how we can get together and him having another new track. I mentioned the Barber Motorsports complex in Alabama. That track is one of my favorites and the racing is usually very good. Also the Cahaba river runs within a couple of miles from the track. That would be the home of the Cahaba redeye bass ! Two birds one stone my friends.

    TR place holder for next week!

    Here I was thinking that I was a road warrior fisherman with 400 to 500 mile round trip day trips. You got me beat buddy. Also you were half way to Maryland. Just saying!

    Found a Walleye

    Sounds like a great day even if hot. Congrats on a variety of fish. That sucker looks like it might be a black redhorse. That crappie with the black mark is really cool. I heard of them being called blacknose crappie. My buddy has a pond that he stocked with crappie and about half were that strain. Congrats!

    TR place holder for next week!

    That would be a lot for me, especially fishing with @Ham ! Never caught a bat, had lots and lots of close calls especially with foam/feather poppers at dusk. I've caught snapping, painted, and a loggerhead turtle (fortunately it only held the bait in its closed mouth. It let go as I pulled it into the surf). Caught frogs, water snakes, and I did catch a 4 1/2 foot alligator. Only bird that I caught was a pelican, but no mammals.
