Used this test subject to search some larger, deeper, uglier looking water.

It took a Tiger Trout… My first ever, awesome!

Then it took something a bit larger…19 1/2inches to be exact.

[singlepic id=2486 w=495 h=415 float=center]
It was lost to a snag…then the #6 Brown SMB saved the day…18 1/2 inches.

Needless to say this was a very good afternoon. Got ran almost to my backing (a rarity around here), landed two of the largest trout I’ve managed this season, didn’t lose a single fish or hookset for that matter, caught a tiger trout, (wow) all in the span of a couple hours. I apologize for the crappy photo edit but it had to be done if not for me for the innocent fish that live here. I spent little time taking pictures of these trout (thus the reason for the crappy edit) as I wanted them back in the creek and quickly, both were hard fighters, a seriously heart racing excellent time, they both kicked water in my face as they left my hands. Looks like I should go searching a bit more, maybe tweek my proto-type and get a few more tied up. I love this sh*t….
