I took my 16 year old son out on Sunday afternoon for some trout fishing. Conditions were not what we would consider favorable but the trout thought otherwise. It was over 90, no clouds, and very windy where we were. I caught 3 between 17-19 and my son caught his first "big" trout 20.125" I'm glad I was with him when it happened, pretty special.

Nice Brown! Does that thing have some battle damage on it's tail?

Looks like someone tried to set it's tail on fire. Still a very pretty fish!

The other side was actually worse. It had a big patch of skin missing. Hard to believe but it actually looked like something tried to eat it this past year. It is a trib to the Root River so it could have been a Northern but I'm telling myself it was from a 30+" male brown. I wonder if something (otter maybe coon) was able to try to eat it or pull it out of the water and it escaped.
