...biggest brown trout of my life.

...judging by the fat rolls im pretty certain this fish might be part manatee... thank god she fell out of her mobility scooter after the first jump, otherwise she might have gotten away.


steelh

...started my season out by catchin this sweet ass steelhead on my first day on the river.


salm

...giant storms cut the salmon season short, but i still managed to catch some decent fish.

Thanks Eddie ThumpUp

Sasquatch is definitely in his own club!

I left off the list: salmon, steelhead, walleye, chubb, golden shiner, pike, redhorse sucker and sculpin. Also saw Shebs catch a couple nice largemouth bass hahha. The western WI upper driftless is an amazing place.

Happy Fishing!

This was my first season with a drift boat. Drift boats are awesome, but you end up spending all your time rowing while your friends are catching fish. I probably caught less than 60 trout this summer, and I only caught two fish that broke 20 (20 is much easier to hit on the rivers I fish than in the driftless). This particular fish was my favorite of the season because my buddy was in the bow ripping streamers while I rowed, after about 3.5 hours of getting completely skunked he offered me the rod and asked if I wanted to take a couple shots. I caught this on my third cast, and immediately went back to rowing. I'm not a better fisherman than him or anything, it was just a right place at the right time kinda thing -- call it karma.
