As I have stated before I have been wanting to get some other species under my belt, even though I have caught a couple of LMB's before but they were very very very small.

So I traveled a little bit this last weekend to try and get some on the fly. I am happy to report I was successful in that trip.

After fishing for an hour and half plus at one fish and changing flies NUMEROUS times and only getting two very soft bites from the fish, I decided to give up on that one and move on.

Found a couple of other fish that were not interested either until I met this one:





Continued to look for fish that were willing to play but not much luck.

I then went back to the fish that i threw at for ever and within 10 minutes had it hammer my fly!!! What a feelin!! Tried to drag me under a tree, but I fought back, then it tried to pull me into the weeds and it went into the weeds. A very short time after being in the weeds it came off and left a wad of weeds on my fly. :-[

Threw a couple times to another fish that was near a tree, which i proceeded to hook, the tree not the fish. I lost my fly!

Tied another one on and went searching for mo bucket mouff's:smile:

When I found this willing and able guy or girl, didn't matter to me, I got it landed!!




same fish.
Hope I am holding it right.




I gotta say what a blast it was to hook my PB LMB!!!

I will searching these fish out more often. It was a kick in the pants!

Thanks for lookin.

Fun on flies. Try poppers for 'em if you want some more of that feeling. I was out at Pueblo last Sunday and took a break from the walleyes for a while and threw poppers made from cheap flip flops and feathers. Caught a LMB and 4 or 5 SMB on 'em. WAY cool when they explode the surface of the water to get after 'em.

Thanks guys!

Ninja, it wasn't too hard to beat my previous personal best :eek:

Just took a lil time and effort, more importantly the effort.

I've got a friend here tellin me the same thing. I tried a popper the other day but no takers. These I had to bounce it on their nose.

I want that explosion for a frog or mouse or popper, that would/will be so dang cool.

Nice man, glad your efforts paid off!!

You should consider trying to get some pike on the end of your fly rod someday; that's a blast as well.

Thanks man.

That is definitely on the list sir. I have in the past landed some on the the fly even though they were just hammer handles. (not sure if they count) In a few more weeks I plan on trying for some toothy critters in a lake nearby. :smile:

I finally got myself an entry level pontoon to help facilitate my goals of other species on the fly. I couldn't decide what toon to get for the longest time I felt I needed/wanted about 2 or 3 to get what I wanted out of one pontoon. I finally said eff it and got an entry level one to see how much I would use it and if I get into it as much as I think I might then I will get another for those wants and or needs.
