    Haha I know, I forgot to read the details. That sucker is going down this year though, I got a feeling. Thinking dry falls or lenice for the big one. I know dry falls has plenty of browns that are in the 30 inch plus range but they are a tuff customer.

    dry falls definitely has the big one. i got some things figured out there. once the steelhead rivers close down, we'll start working on the browns.

    WooHoo . . . I have a shot at this. Lost a big 'un while ice fishing this winter . . . don't know exactly how big it was, but when I looked down the hole, all I could see was an eye . . . I'll be back with the proper rod . . .

    "1st Place --- is currently occupied by our first entry from CEVICHE. 20 inches of pass lake brown trout. a good start to the year."

    That fish is 20"? Surely you jest!

    Or Northern California?
    Old Man; it's probably because Sean knows the winner would be from out-of-state.

    Click the photo and you'll be able to view it larger. The measuring net starts at zero at the middle bottom of the bag, and numbers increase going outwards to the ends. That means you have to add the numbers visible at either end of the fish to get the length. Yes, the trout is rather skinny, but the numbers are there. A pox upon you disbelievers!
