Congrats and nice fish. I like that you were more concerned with getting it back in the water than putting a tape on it. That's rare in this day an age.

Got into some brookies today...

UserPostedImage


They were tiny, but there were a lot of larger fish in all of the areas that I got them and I'm hoping some of those larger ones were also brookies.

The larger fish were being finicky (smart) and I believe the full sun gave away my lures in the crystal clear stream that I was on.

Can't wait to go back and try again and most excited that these are this far south and outside of the Driftless.

This was a tiny fish, but I admire the little ones that go after bigger streamers.

AKinMN, great point and I agree completely. Far too many of what I like to call instagram fisherman out there holding a fish out of the water forever to get that perfect shot so they can make sure everyone and their brother sees it.

My first brook trout;

UserPostedImage
I caught 4 about the same size.

Though they are beautiful, they are a pain in the ass and almost not worth the effort.
They hate the sun, they are lightening fast and can scare the crap out of you with instant vicious attacks!
They live under rocks and logs hidden behind thick brushy overgrowth and giant overhanging tree trunks and branches.
That is all.

That is fine primordial looking Brookie! The gold/red on black with those dark eyes, like a fresh water shark.

Watch out, those little bastards will get under your skin. If you think the takes are nasty now, just wait until you see them attack Hoppers. The little ones fight like crazy, but when you latch onto a fat 12-14 incher you'll think you got a 20" Brown on the line.
