Here's a brooky I caught in oct.2001. up in the flattops at a lake which has no name that I can recall...We literally waded through waist deep snow over a saddle to get there.The lake was 50% frozen,and was the only bite in 2 days!

Oh, my god!

That is a wonderful fish, and a male to boot. My congratulations, esteem, and every humble bone in my body. THANKS for the pic, and hope the fish tasted good. (Actually, I hope the single empathetic bone in your body let it go, but if not... YUM!)

Owe ya another beer, just for the trek you were on.

Be Proud! Ya deserve it!

It was 21" long. Didnt weigh it but it was right at 5 lbs. I have a scanner now and will post a better pic- the pic I posted is a camera phone pic of the framed brooky pic on my wall. If that makes sense--

I wanted to let it go but It was hooked in the gills. Bled like a stuck pig! It was the only fish we caught in 2 1/2 days. One bite-one fish.

One bite- one fish...that's classic!
Nice fish, most (ok, all) of the brooks I've caught would be bait for that thing

Slayer. have you ever tried hooper or keener up above stillwater res? 15-20 years ago I watched my buddy pull out about a seven lb brookie. I say about cause I don't know for sure. It's on a wall someplace, but don't know where, as he passed away 6 yrs. ago. Real tough fishing there though. Went 3 times and caught 4 fish between us, but all real nice ones.

I don't believe the picture - it was Photoshopped.

1) There is no tape measure by it
2) The finger sticking out of the glove is at least 6 inches long
3) It looks like an Arctic Char and not a Brookie - I can tell because my wife is a biology teacher
4) You didn't post a map and/or GPS coordinates to the lake
5) You didn't get it weighed by a certified scale that was recently tested by the department of weights and measures
6) I've never heard of any brook trout of that size coming from that area
7) You didn't release it.

Sorry, I'm just trying to fit in around here. ::)

Mr. Ed:
You were entirely too polite with your argument. I don't believe your argument as I have made similar arguments , seen them on the forum, and yours is definitely not as substantial as mine. Even though it was a different argument, and I don't know your wife, Slayer's fingers, or a tape measure, I am absolutely sure that the picture or you argument may or may not have not been Photoshopped or edited in some way.

Now I'm just being stupid. I'll stop.

If a spectacle is going to be particularly imposing I prefer to see it through somebody else's eyes, because that man will always exaggerate. Then I can exaggerate his exaggeration, and my account of the thing will be the most impressive.

Gee, Mr. Ed, only 7 reasons?

Certainly there are more reasons than that to blow away a wonderful fish... ;D ;D

Did it fit in a 'slot'?
It was caught on_____ (fill in the blank)
Probably 80-90 more, but still a wonderful fish, even if he ate it and turned it into ****. >:D

Waiting for the next pic!

I agree - great fish. But those 7 reasons tend to be popular at the moment. I'm sure that will change around the Christmas Break, then around Spring Break, then over next summer again. Seems to be the trend.
