    Not a flaw on it. 22 1/2 inches. Sure wish I knew where the wife put the diigital camera. &*^%$#@!

    Took pics with a regular camera though. Hope to have some nice reference pics to post soon. Three or four more pics left on the roll of film.

    What amazes me is I planted this fish last fall at not over 3 lbs. probably closer to 2 lbs! It was the first planting for that pond so it can't be a holdover.

    God I love those colors and that big hook jaw! :eek:

    For those of you that have brooks and browns reserved I'm hard at work catching them ;D and will contact you when I have the freezer full. The rest will be posted on this site as first come first serve.

    Took a 17 1/2 inch brook out of the pond today too just under 3 lbs.

    Send 'em out Bruce. If he disappears I won't allow them to dredge the pond until I get all the trout out.
    ;D ;D ;D

    BTW what's he doing with his hands in that pic and why are you smiling? :D


    Keep in mind that comment was just in fun. No offense meant.

    Oh wow Bruce a dream come true! I can eliminate the whole administration in one foul swoop. I'll get the IED's set up at the pond. When the dog barks tomorrow night whawoom whoom! You shouldn't come though -- I like ya. ;D

    Any way to can convince Deadeye Dick Cheney to come? I'm sure I can scramble up some lawyers for him to hunt with. I wouldn't want this to be an incomplete mission ya know. ;)

    Bruce,

    I guess your pic disappeared for security reasons eh? ;)

    Nope no cowboy hats here. We're not that far west on the other side of Ohio. BTW I was a Masshole once so I'm not that foreign to the east coast. ;D


    Edit: I see it now. So did he win? ;D

    Here's a pic of the brown. Sorry reference pics will have to wait until I get the roll of film developed. This pic was taken with the digital when the wife got home several hours later. Had 'em semi frozen until then so the colors were better whe he was fresh.

    Gonna mount 'em up for myself. Could have kicked myself for selling an almost 12 pounder a couple of years ago. :mad:

    Oh yeah and I'm expecting someone to make fun of the way I look. ::)

    Hey you brown trout specialists: Notice the tail is fully spotted? Not very common with browns but not unheard of either. Funny thing is my state DNR says the way you tell a rainbow from a brown is a brown has NO spots on it's tail. Yeah right. ::)
