    Trying to find my fishing photo album.

    Here's a 28 pound Striper from Silverwood to gander at while I search... It's an old pic from the mid 90's. It hit a rogue in 18" of water on 10 lb test right up against a sandy beach. It immediately burned drag and towed the boat an honest 100 yards off the beach before it tired. Damn thing was half the size of our little alum bass boat of the time.

    Honestly ( all fishermen are liars, not even their wives know what 6" looks like) I have to scan some photo's before I can host them and put them up. Let's just say I've caught some nice trout in my day.

    Who can name this species of fish?

    I fish but normally forget to take pictures, maybe that's why I never actually catch anything.

    I love fishes cause their so delicious.

    raised in TX...so I never lost the bass bug.

    This lil' guy caught on a 4" handpour (witches T) tied to a cross carolina/texas rig with rattle....

    I miss the dawn patrol double rigging. start with a top water lure, if they miss, pick up rig numero dos (with a plastic tied on)...cast it where they broke the surface..wait 7-10 seconds and BLAMMO

    works like 90% of the time...

    RandyBoy, ever fish Fin & Feather in Plamdale? Those gigantic trout they stock in there are supposedly a cross between a Rainbow and a Salmon. My biggest outta there is 11 pounds but I lost my way to get in because the member who used to invite me as a guest got kicked out.

    I fished it once... also fished some stocker lake down in Irvine, CA for BS Lightning trout. Once was enough, never again... Pretty much took up fishing where there were lakes in in national forests with no launch fees when I had my little Gregor /Honda combo. I am suffering from a brain fart for the clever name I had for my boat. My handle on another board was Grand Teutons.... It's a long story ( a good one) how I came up with that name at a bar on the Trout Opener with a beer or two too much in me at high elevation.

    Edit: Just remembered it... "Nuthing but Net".

    I know they're hybrids but I'm not exactly sure between what species although I'm fairly sure brown is one half of the equation. Brookie for the other half? Funny thing is when I fist looked at the picture I saw the belly and was thinking brown, then I saw the fins and that idea was shot down. Then I finally saw the whole fish and it was tiger. Never actually caught or seen one but I've looked at some pics from friends. Pretty cool looking fish.

    Tiger trout are a hybrid between Brook trout and Brown Trout. You get the eagerness of a brookie to feed, and the aggressiveness of a brown. There are a few states that breed and stock them PA and UT I believe. The resulting crossbreeding equals a sterile fish. They do occasionally occur in the wild since both brook and browns spawn in the fall.

    Fly fishing for trout has been my obsession for the better part of the last 20 years. Recently it has given way to mountain biking. Between getting spoiled on the fishing in WY/Yelllowstone and mountain biking here I don't fish my home waters enough. I need to change that, along with getting some offshore time the coming year.

    Here are a few more...

    Southern Spec


    Been known to build rods too


    Fine Spotted Snake River Cutthroat, not from the Snake but the species






    Yellowstone Cutthroats







    saw one of these up there too


    I'm embarrassed to say I have a bunch of pictures from a backcountry trip in Yellowstone back in July that I haven't even gotten off the camera yet. Includes a closer than I wanted to be grizzly pic.

    It's a Sheephead. It was taken right off Vandenberg AFB on the Central Coast of California. It's the largest reported Sheephead that landing has ever had (19 lbs). My smiling face is on the wall inside the landing holding that beast. It supplied an incredible fight on freshwater bass gear. I was starting to doubt I would ever get it up to the gaff when it finally tired out and gave in.

    Cool. Nice pictures. I've never been much for fishing, no particular reason, just never got into it. I like being around the water though, which is probably pretty obvious being as I live in the desert.

    Sounds like a fun fish to catch. Actually your story is similar to mine in that I used to fish all the time but now it's mountain biking for me. I'm hoping to get a more fishing in though. Those are some beautiful pics-talk about wetting my apatite!

    No pics, guess I need to start taking some but usually too busy fishing. Mostly flies for Grayling and Apache Trout, Rainbows when I get desperate. Some really nice fish in this thread.

    I'm not much of a Salty. Only been out a few times through the years. I had bought an OK Trident Kayak to attack the North Ca. coast.
    But, traded it for my Highball.

    Ok found a pic of my black marlin. This fishign trip started off slow as hell, pissing rain. Never been so cold hugging the equator. Had a few dorado, and small tuna, then pay off. Three marlin in the spread. Hooked two, the one on my rod stayed on. Team effort for sure.

    The day after this the clouds cleared and had an amazing day catching dorado /mahi. No lie easily released way more than 50. Caught them on everything, trolling cigars, spin cast, and on the fly till they broke the fly rod. Good times, need to do that **** again sometime soon.

    That's pretty dang cool!

    Speakin of Black Marlins (and hookups), in highschool we had a term for those ultra-hot chicks that you wanted to hook, but were 'out of your league'.

    That term was 'Black Marlin'

    EX:
    "hey, did you hear Jason hooked up with Tonya Jacobs?"
    "No way, that black marlin? right!"
    "Dood, I got proof... As soon as finish up this roll of film, I'll take it down to Kmart to have it developed"
    "Damn, I always wanted to hook that one "

    What was really cool about that term, was that you could use it right in front of them and they would be none the wiser.
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    So Dell, would Emily Batten be a Black Marlin, or a hook up?

    ^ Super awesome video man!! That last trout looked real nice! Now I must find an epic place to ride/fish. How did you carry your fly rod with you?

    ^ Super awesome video man!! That last trout looked real nice! Now I must find an epic place to ride/fish. How did you carry your fly rod with you?
    Thanks! Good thing I threw that nice one back because I swear I caught the same fish again on a very slow fishing day. I carry my nice rod in its aluminum tube inside a day pack along with the proper number of beers.
