I headed out this afternoon to test out a new to me boat by terrorizing the local population of panfish and largemouths in the lake. I casted my way around going from dock to lillypads to docks hooking up with a few small bass. As I was going from dock to dock I left my fly out behind me on 20' of line(to lazy to reel it all in) when the rod just about gets jerked out of my hand. I quickly lifted the rod and was rewarded by a large rainbow jumping out of the water(I also dropped my beer but that is another story). He ended up putting up a hell of a fight and was just under 20" and fat as hell, definitely the biggest rainbow I have ever caught, and I wasn't even trying to catch a fish. Guess I need to start trolling streamers around the lake more often. Not a bad first outing for the boat.
