Can Can with a moostache, and hair?
dunno, but that is a nice trout.
WOW!!! Nice rainbow!!!! Is it Stan? If so, he's not what I pictured at all.
thats what i was thinking, just couldnt remember his name. think i seen him at BB03..
I believe his username is Bigdummy89 or something really close to that. Does that sound right, Grant?
If there were points being awarded I'd split em between Paul and Grant.
That is stan, AKA BigDummy89K5 with one of the 15 rainbows he caught on a recent fishing trip. (I got skunked... )
Pic of the "Big Dummy":
Nice pic Rene.Man that was a nice trip,cold weather,warm wall tent,cold beer and good food.The fishing was good also,at least for some of us.Nothing like a 4 pound rainbow on the fly.
man the rainbow we catch out here are no more then a pound to a pound and a half. Make for some damn good pan fry though... I gotta go out west and get the brooks with my fly rod...
That pic was not Stan's biggest fish. He got one up to the boat that was easily 6" longer and another 1.5-2lbs heavier. Had to be close to 26-27" long and round as a football. We had this pathetic little net though and I couldn't get enough of him into the net to bring it into the boat. Single barbless hook, so you don't get a second chance to net them...
Next time we are bringing a bigger net!!
Maybe a stupid question I havent been to the coast since I was like 5 or 6, but is the water open year round? Are you guys out in the waders fly rod in hand in January? If so Im gonna pack my bags and header on down west. I went ice fishing yesterday and just caught a sauger and a maria (sp?)
That particular lake freezes over in the winter, but it's a couple of hundred miles inland and at 5000 feet elevation. Most lakes on the coast here are open and can be fished year round.
This lake is a 2 hour drive away (including the 10km offroad). This pic was taken in early April I think...
The pic of Stan with the rainbow was taken on Oct 30th and the lake was just starting to ice up in places.
when the ice melts off the lakes this spring, come west. The Cronomid [sp] fishing before the lakes turn over is simply incredible. But usually I'm too late, plus i lack the patience for that kind of fishing. So we just throw on a leach pattern and troll. But for eating your right the 1 1/2 pounders are the best, but for catching the 5 pounders are king. I can't wait.
OH thanks Rene a picture of my favorite local lake,the fish are not to big but plentiful.unless you hook on to a cutty, and the view.Now i'll have to take Monday off.
How is the lake trout fishing? I love going up north in Manitoba here for lakers. We usually go out to George Lake with some deep running rapela's and fish the 25-30 foot depth. Gotta go just after the ice melts and it is usually the most terrible weather. However the fight of bringing in a 10 lbs lake trout is worth it.
I gotta see if I can find some pictures.
Don't know much about lake trout only caught one in my life,a 2 lb fish that fought like a 1/2 lb Rainbow.But if the sucker is 10 lbs, and your using 6 lb leader things could get interesting. By the way what are sauger and maria [sp]
a sauger is a cross between a perch and a pickerel. A maria is the ugliest fish in the world. It looks like a mutated cat fish. Some old man wanted to keep them though, said they are a poor mans lobster. They are also known as a Burbot. Most people know them of that, but I always grew up calling them maria. dunno.
Here is a picture of one.
That is one ugly thing, and to think some would eat it."yuk" My dad used to take me ice fishing north of Edmonton, we caught mostly yellow perch, alittle on the small side but good eating. But once in awhile a pike would hit. One that I remember was 26 lbs. Once it was thru the ice, it tried to bite the old man, dad won. Seems like a long time ago, oh wait a minute it was.
yea the pike get shark sized up north here too. Damn good fight bringing one in, in the summer.
