Got the grand boys out for some fishing. One caught a cuttbow the other a rainbow. Both were in the 12-13 inch range. I caught zilch. I was surprised to find they were pink in side considering the lake they were out of. They must have put some brooders in the lake. I saw a guy that had a trout approximately 24" and 4 or 5 lbs. I was kinda pissed it wasn't thrown back. But I don't know the circumstances of the hook up.

It has been my experience that a trout that will hit a lure, as opposed to bait, will more times than not will have pink meat. It may be because the trout that hit lures have been in the lake long enough to be hunters of prey rather than scavengers and their meat reflects this theory... JMHO
