Went to CSP and CCSP on the 15th.  Hit CSP from around noon till 4 with my wife.  Trolled along the bouy line near the plum creek area.  Got this rainbow in about 14 feet of water on a crawler harness 2-3 feet deep.  Hit hard and jumped all over the place.  It was a little difficult to reel in with my sore hand, but tons of fun.  Also caught another of about the same size 10 feet under a slip bobber at the bridge.  We were marking tons of fish at that depth.




Then hit CCSP from 6p-8p with my son.  Nothing caught but a nice evening on the water.  The sunset from the east side of the lake.



I caught this smallmouth at the end of August.  I was fishing for bluegill with bit of crawler just covering a size 14 hook.  It was not even big enough to pull the bobber down. 

I think I have reclaimed the record for the smallest fish caught for 2005!

Way to be a warrior and fish all bandaged up!!! Looks like a great day on the water. Its so impressive to me that you can catch fish smaller then the minnows I use as bait. :p

Someone please help me! Something is just begging to sneak off my keyboard while I am not paying attention.

I think Zman has been set up.

I think someone is jealous,  Epic, when are you gonna post a picture of a fish you caught?  Seems we see pics of Cody and hear about his fish but rarely yours.

And when you do post it seems there is always a little disclaimer on the picts that says "This picture has been modified using PhotoShop"!  j/k   ;D :D

Epic,

My sincerest apologies. I can see that I was wrong and only a fool would believe that any of your pictures were modified using photo shop! It was my own jealousy coming through.

But I would like a report on where, when and how you managed to catch such beautiful fish!

Whoa, it needed a [i]double axle[/i] trailer! That's some big fish! My biggest, from Flaming Gorge, was small enough to fit on a single axle trailer:

I was lucky that rigor mortis had set in, otherwise his tail would have been dragging on the road...

Did either of you have your fish mounted?

Dan

Epic, Work2fish,

Nice, some huge filets I bet. What did you catch them on?

Filled up my deep freeze, my dads deep freeze, my inlaws deep freeze, and my friends freezer. Plus we had a fish fry for all the ones that didnt make it into the freezer. The garbage company charged me extra for some reason.

Dan,
I could not afford to mount it, either -- I couldn't justify the withdrawal from my retirement savings.

I thought they took pontoons off an 18 foot pontoon boat and painted them up to look like rapalas...

mine was caught on an 1/8 ounce red and white tube jig on an ultra light crappie rig... I barely had him hooked in the corner of the mouth it was a great fight.

Wow work2fish, I get tired just thinking about casting that thing, your daughter must be really tough. I kind of have you figured out though, she casts all day, hooks the fish, and you take all the credit.

I'm thinking I would rather be using Epics catfishing/crappie bait, the down side however would be what I guess was probably a long lasting fight.

Still, they both are amazing!
