Fish Story

Recommended Posts

Long time OA "lurker" that reads most every post and usually keeps to myself, but I have a little fish story to tell. I know...I know...and I was by myself to boot, but I lost a BIG brownie at the boat yesterday. Big for me anyway. I have a 7 1/2 lb rainbow on my wall caught just below fall creek a number of years ago and this one was quite a bit bigger, I'd guess in the neighborhood of 12 pounds. Had him on the side of the boat, net in hand and snap. At least I have the memory and the satisfaction of watching him swim leisurely off after a 10 minute battle. He's still lurking somewhere just above the narrows if you catch one with a white jig and a couple of feet of green 4# test hanging from his lip!

What a fun couple of days. Caught a ton and great sized, too. Can't believe how hungry they remain with all they have to eat up there right now. 

Maybe next time...

Dang those are heart breakers.  At least you got to see him.  Def some big ol beasts out there.

The ones that just pull drag and you never get to turn them much less see them are a big bummer too!
