2020 Taneyfest pictures

That net works real nice still, almost put Kevin's big Walleye in it but was easier to beach her than haver her and that jerkbait make a mess in the net LOL.

So finally back home and just wanted to say thanks to all you guys who made such another memorable event possible.  Fantastic company and companionship with just a top notch group of folks who I call friends.  Thank you to our gracious host Phil for hosting us.  My buddy kept going on and on about how awesome the resort is, I know him and his family will be back for sure.  Thanks Seth and Les for being great Captains for us non boat guys.  Truly appreciate it.

I will share one thing from our last evening of fishing that goes along with all of the other fish stories and lies.  Around 2AM Sunday morning we were warming up and I took Kevin down to outlet 2 to see what was hanging up there.  I got to the top of the steps with my headlamp on and at the bottom was a beast of a trout.  I turned my light away from him and told Kevin to get back over here.  We both kicked on our headlamps and at the bottom of the stairs was a true Taneycomo sea monster.  Huge fish which was well over the 2 foot mark.  We got a big brighter LED light and when we kicked it on we truly saw how big he was.  He ended up pushing him with the light up into the shallow pocket of water next to the stairs and when he turned I saw the big red stripe going down its side.  It was a HUGE RAINBOW!  I'm guessing likely a potential new state record rainbow that we were both blessed to be able to see.  I tried to creep down there and threw a few casts with the jerkbait but he was gone by that point.  As soon as the water is shut off I'll be back down there to hunt that one for sure!

Should be a decorative piece on the wall of a bar or man cave...:)

She's a working net, but I do keep her prettied up and give her a fresh coat of oil every year!  Lives in my mud room cubby usually, too nice to be staying out in the cold garage LOL.

Poor Cody just didn't start things off right with her.  Needs a little more finesse and doesn't need to be man handled soo much :)

Looks fun! Wish I could have made it down but work is work. I assume I'll see some of you boys at the tourneys. It's finally trout time for me. Been a looonnggg duck season.

We didn't get anything real big during Taneyfest. Fishing was pretty slow compared to what it's usually like. This one was caught the morning after the CAM tourney last April.
