One thing I really love about fishing is you never know what might happen.

Many of the lakes that I like to fish have debatable ice at best and I am not like DrCro or Slayer and willing to walk on 2.5 inches of ice. Not even for jumbo Perch.

So I went to a lake with a fishing pier and popped some holes off the pier hoping for some panfish. Ended up getting my PB Brown trout on a 1.5 inch tube jig tipped with a wax worm. Sorry the pictures are not better quality. My hands were shaking and I wanted to get the fish back in the water as fast as possible.

Nice! :thumb:

nice very nice pretty sure I know the lake actually the ice is pretty good, but better safe than sorry
It must be "there." And I guess I "know" where "there" is too then. ;D

Nice brown for the front range!
Absolutely! I was surprised as heck. I have caught some big Rainbows and Cuttbows up to 27", but this is my first truly large brown (Over 22"). I was just telling my friend that I am planning on getting an annual Wyoming license for the purpose of catching larger browns, and then I got this big brown not far from home.
