    @Wee Friar,

    Aaaaahhhhh! You shoulda taken a close up of the trout, so we could see how beatiful it is.

    I’ve never seen a freshly caught trout in real life.

    I’m just curious about the dates for the trout fishing season?

    Now, use it to catch a bigger fish!

    heh heh

    Here…I enlarged it on Photoshop.

    The photo doesnt’ do it justice. Speckled trout are beautiful pink/green/brown/silver, with pink spots.

    The season is from April 30 to Sept. 30. But about 80% of all trout around here are caught in the month of May..when the water’s still cold. This guy was a straggler.

    Noooo!!….trout are hard enough to catch. I’m keeping everyone I catch (So far, it’s been TWO this year!)

    There were tons other fish I caught…useless chub…I’d rather use those as live-bait.

    Happy Father’s Day Mike!!!! That’s a cute little minnow.

    Well, at least he was tasty.

    He should be. 1 hour of driving, 1 hour of paddling, just to get to the lake….not counting the hours of fishing just to get him.

    This will probalby be the last trout I’ll catch all year. The water’s getting too warm now.

    Thanks for the enlargement, but . . . the fuzzy photo doesn’t do it justice. Still, it’s a much prettier fish than the ugly pike we caught. That one was frightening.

    Breakfast for champions.

    That’s a very handsome little trout you have there, Friar.

    Yeah…pike aren’t know for their looks. Especially the big ones…who would inhale a little trout like this in one gulp.

    I was due. It’s been a while since I posted something about lame-ass dead fish.

    I thought so too. I was almost gonna let him go, but my fishing buddy convinced me to keep him.

    He was pretty tasty, too.
