That is the biggest Brookie I have seen in WA in 8 years. I saw three bigger in one day in May in 04. But Wow. Trophy indeed. I love brookies and big ones are hard to come by. Unfortunately I have only witnessed bigger in other peoples nets. My biggest was about 17 out of the same lake as the three biggest. Don't know where you got that monster but I could venture a guess.
Whoa! That's a trophy brookie almost anywhere less perhaps Labrador. Nice work.
Those have to be one of the most colorful fresh water fish, next to the Artic Grayling (in spawn season).
Nicely down! Thanks for sharing...
That is awesome ! Great job !!
A 20 inch Brookie still eludes me despite over 45 years cast. Congratulations.
My best was special to me because I caught it in the Yakima at the base of the diversion dam while pausing after portaging the canoe down stream. It was a 16 inch fish. I think that was a respectable sized Brookie considering the location and small population remaining in the main Yakima. It took a Dave's Hopper.
I love Leech Lake for it's Brookies although I have never caught one more than 14 inches from there. Hit a flying ant hatch there once and caught one on nearly every cast.
Must have caught over 35 in just 2 hours.
I love those from high elevations. Something about alpine tarns really brings out their colors.
Damm, that's nice.
very nice! been chasing those for 30yrs now and never had such luck on anything bigger than 16"....
The lake does iI am assuming, but triploidjunkie has been fishing there at his ranch all his life and still has only pulled a 17 inch out. An awesome size! But mine still bigger
That is a fish of a life time!!! Great catch and it truly gives you bragging rights with pictures to prove
That is an amazing fish Enlightened! Congrats! Triploid is going to have to fish a very long time to beat that one. Way to go girl!
Pretty soon school is out and your free all summer to catch a bigger one.
Funny thing is it was getting too dark to see much. She cast her fly(some purple and pink thing a four year old picked out of all the flies in my box)right into the tules. I was giving her crap about it when her line tightned up. I was about to say told ya so thinking she snagged up on the tules. Before I could open my mouth the water exploded.
Well that report makes the fish even better!
Nice fish! Never saw or caught one that big here in Washington. Rivals the big brookies I used to catch on the East Coast in Newfoundland, Canada. Good for you. And the Pig Tails are just fine too!
Beauty, and yes - rubbing it in makes it so much sweeter!
Monster brookie! Nice work enlightened.
Damnit!!! Quite encouraging her!!! She's still rubbing that fish in.
Wow, well done.
