story--

a buddy and i decided to go down to meramec spring park to do some c and r. i started with a tandem rig (2 scud pattern and buddy did a egg pattern and scud). this first male that i caught i had hooked with the bottom scud(only 8x tippet on bottom) and snapped me off. i

then hooked it again and landed it. removed the scud and quick pic and release. after netting it, my buddy sticks a nice 15 inch bow but didnt get a good quality pic because the sun was behind him. these 2 fish along with a couple other smaller ones came between the upper bridge stretch to the handicap hole. we then skipped the upper portion and worked our way down and hit the white water pool that is one down from the bathroom hole. landed about 6-7 more trout here including the 5-6 lb that spit. then moved down below the white water about 50 yards and spotted a nice fish. i worked it for about 20 minutes with no luck. i checked my scud and the thread was coming off along with all the materials(i must not have tied it well) i then retied a different one on and first cast i stuck the 6 lb hen. for whatever reason it fought alot better than the first one and took me about 10 minutes to land. after about 5 minutes of reviving she swam off unharmed. whistle blew right after releasing so day was done. good trip but only got to fish for 2 hours. did notice that they are doing some improvements down there. they are cleaning moss out and putting huge bolders in the water throughout. the fish seem to like hanging around these bolders.

I didn't know they were improving the lunker pool this time of year. Just Kidding...I seen both of these monsters today, and for Maramec these are trophies. But,don't think the stream is full of these caliber fish, there are still an abundance of the 8oz stockers swimming everywhere.

Nice Fish, maybe more Wednesday.

Later,

John

In picture # 2 the black cord that is coming out off Center Punches sweat shirt has the "Big Fish Whistle" attached to it Leonard is selling, he probably told Center Punch to keep it hidden,from us that try to catch BIG fish!

I was one of the 4 guys that went out with CenterPunch and topjaw. I got to see this fish cuaght right in front of me, and it's the biggest fish I've seen caught out of Maramec in a long time. Not to mention it was with a flyrod.

Other than trying to keep up with these guys, I had a great time fishing today. Here's another pic with CenterPunch, and a couple of smaller ones that I caught.

Enjoy.

P.S. Jared my cell phone is still in your truck, I'll have to try and come get it tomorrow night.
