    Nice work Garro!

    I spent two days last week out off Beavertail, RI stalking blues on fly and picking up the occasional bottom feeder. Second day was 40's and raining and all I had was a ski shell over a sweater and cotton pants. AWESOME time.

    Dude that is sick sick sick.

    Nothing quite like motoring along at 30mph in a steady rain, no windshield on the boat, and having the rain pelt your jacket, bead off, and roll down to soak your crotch.

    I don't think I'd even bother cooking that trout. Looks incredible. I was snacking on Atlantic Herring all day since I didn't have any breakfast and all we had on board was a bag of pretzels.

    I may have posted this before but Karen and I spent about a week there staying up on the south rim and walking the trails one February. We met two guys with what looked like and turned out to be fishing rods sticking out of their packs. I asked what they were fishing for... "Rainbows"... I said really? and they said "as big as your leg". I had to reach out and grasp Karen's shoulder, the world swam before my eyes.

    Pretty good day out, forgot my camera but I'll see if the Mrs got any shots - water was a little cold but I got 8 fish, a mixed bag of both Smallies & LMB's
    Damn good fun!

    This thread is about to put me in the "whats chapping your ass thread." My ass is in fact chapped, that i am not there catching fish, or at least trying.. MAD!! Seriously, i love fishing. I love everything about it. To me it is like riding bicycles. I would rather be fishing or riding, no matter what, than doing anything at work..

    Garro, i do not know you... But, i feel like if i ever make it your way, we know each other.

    Steve,

    In Florida we call that size bass bait. You need to hook up with Ronnie E. and hit some of the phosphate pits here in Central Florida.

    Yeah, it's a 10' wide creek.......not bad for the back yard - You go fishing yourself?
    If you just want size then here you can go yank those God-Damn striped bass out of the lower Colorado or lake powell - they get 40lb-ers pretty common, and I can gank in 30" pike all day seven miles away (we have so many they tell you to throw them on the shore if you want) but I'm not a huse pike fan, either.
    Basically, I'm just stoked to catch fish.
    We're not comparing penises, just talking fishin' - fish for yourself and you're always happy........

    But........if I'm going for big fish I go for trout........but, it's tedious & I know few people patient enough to want to go with to catch the big ones, but if you ever want to go.........

    Damn, ain't that true.
    I'd just as soon catch 4" bluegills as much as the 30lb catfish that you are going to use them for as bait.........
