Trout questions / input ?
I have lots of questions and just looking for input, there are no wrong answers
I grew up small stream fishing Trout, but outside of that my catching of Trout species is very limited. I have trolled a few small local lakes with good results, and just started ice fishing for Lakers a year ago. I know the stream fish go nuts once hooked, and those Lakers are very strong and hit very hard.
Here are my best (nothing special) ...
-Brown 19.5" (from stream) / 15" (from lake)
-Rainbow 14.5" ... i have only got 2 ever (one from stream, one from lake)
-Laker 26" (through the ice)
-Brookie Never caught one
-Salmon Never caught one (i know a Salmon is not really from the Trout family too)
So i see post like RJ's recent one and i'm in AWE of those monster fish
I know the river and fly fishing guys it's more about the journy and the hunt of of them.
Fishing from the boat must be just as fun ?
I know what a 25lb Striper is like (after one good run it's just weight and stays down) but a 20lb + fish going air borne and drag screaming has got to be nuts !!!!
All of those fish look like strong and fun to catch.
What species is the most fun in you opinion ?
Funniest way to fish for them ?
Not like i need another species to start chasing around NY and i dont want to have to change my name either LOL
Slow Monday here i guess.
