Hi mate, no cats the other night but my 1st Tench. It was only 2lbs, but if you get one at 6lbs or over it’s considered a trophy so I wasn’t too gutted. They have a lovely Bass green but you cant see it with the flash.
One of the things I love most about fishing is seeing the joy that it brings to people of all ages. Sherman was kind enough to send us these photos of his 60 year old father and the biggest trout he has ever caught! What a beauty!
- This is a email about my 60 year old father and his brook trout. He lives in the Gaspe Coast, there the trout fishing is great but they don’t grow to a big size. They are anywhere between 8 to 12 inches, thats the normal size for our brook trout…so my dad and I decided to fish a lake that a brook was feeding into. We both knew there were a lot of brook trout in this lake for we fished it for years as well as other families. That day was a day we will never forget. We were fishing with fly rods and we weren’t having a lot of success, so we trolled the lake with spinners. I gave my rod to my dad and I put a Mepps on (just to try and see) and all of a sudden this trout hit and the water went flying everywhere. It took 10 minutes with 6 lbs fishing line, but we managed to get it into the boat. Well the trout measured 19 inches and 4 and 1/2 pounds. Wow what a fish! We were going to release it when we saw the hook went into the left eyeball which cause too much damage to release. I have some pics of this trout for you to see. We so wanted to put it back but we didn’t want it to suffer with this injury.
This trout is the biggest trout he has ever caught in his life and it makes me proud that I was there to share it with him.
I’ve caught a few blacktips in my day, but none anywhere near as big as these guys!
- Just wanted to say I love the site. Wanted to share some pictures of a recent fishing trip we had off the coast of NC. Me and four friends chartered a boat, same guys that we always use out of Little River, SC. I had the feeling that they didn’t feel like going to the Gulf Stream that day, so they talked us into shark fishing. None of us had done it before and let me just say it was one of the most fun 10 hours I had on a boat. We caught some nice blacktips, got boarded by the coast guard…you know, just a typical day. Hope you enjoy them.
Mark was sure he had caught his personal best carp, but this beauty fell just short.
