Which brings me to the title of this post. Back on Tuesday January 25th, I noted that I set a new personal best with the 5lb-2oz Cuttbow. Well, today I landed this one that was 7 lbs even. I'm not sure why, but when I landed it, it was already bleeding. So, even though it was a personal best that I would have preferred to release, I put it on the stringer. This one will be hard to beat. Oh, caught it on a little white crappie grub jig. You just never know.
The third thing today, I mentioned about the cold. Well, when I left home, it was 29 degrees. I figured, way too cold to put in the float tube. Little did I know, that when I got to the lake, it was around 40. By 10:30 or so, it was t-shirt weather. Would have been a great day for launching the Float Tube Cumberland. But then again, I would not have caught the "big" one.
To end the day, I managed one more of the little 10 inchers on the same Kastmaster I caught the first one on, minus all the blood from my finger. I figured that Bob might have a freezer full with all the big ones I've given him recently and since he wasn't home, I caught my neighbor Roy and gave him the three fish.
On the way home, I found the ideal place to fish. Check out California Dreaming to see where.
Till next time.
Great catch Mark! Sweet fillets...Almost could make steaks with that one!ReplyDelete
That's a pig!ReplyDelete
White crappie jigs = Multi-species catching machine
That's a damn fine fish, Mark!ReplyDelete
Great job, Mark. You can fish a lifetime for a big Rainbow Trout like that hoping that someday your fish will come. Today yours did!ReplyDelete
Nice job Mark!! You've been catching some great trout lately. I hope some of your luck rubs off on me lol :DReplyDelete
GREAT trout Mark - you've gotten into some really good fish already this year. And - that on IS going to be tough to beatReplyDelete
You sure the blood on the fish isn't from your finger??
Two personal bests in less than two weeks? I'm not questioning your angling abilities, but go buy a lottery ticket right now.ReplyDelete
Nice fish! Too bad about the finger...gotta love barbless hooks...ReplyDelete
