Mixed it up today and went to a high numbers area and it didn't disappoint. Rivers are on their way down and clearing. Water color was about perfect with a nice stain and good flow. The fishing was smoking hot...it was almost comical! No big ones though. Couldn't have asked for a better day except for the ridiculous wind.

He gone!

That has to be one of the better action shots I've seen on this forum.

Biggest brook trout I ever caught (18 inches) was on a Bill Dance eel crankbait. Surprised the heck out of me!

Mine wasn't quite smoking, but I had the same experience in terms of no big ones.

Cookie cutter 10-11 inch browns... 10 of them. Where are your big brothers? Did get a 15 incher as the last fish of the night, but by then the scuffling for little fish had worn me out and that couldn't rescue my blah mood.

Lots of even smaller ones tugging for a bit and getting off. Fish seemed noncommittal last night.

One 11 inch brookie though. Funny how that's a really good fish and the same sized brownie is meh.

No. Was a lake in northeastern Minnesota. Was fishing for bass. Biggest brook trout I caught around here was about 14 inches.
