The only trout I eat these days are winter or spring caught Rufus woods triploids, and they are good
Eight pounds on the first telling. AND it was a stillwater lake in Idaho....so they grow slower there. I suspect it will take at least five more years of story telling to get to 10 pounds.
That is a nice fish does no matter what weight and size. I have a hellva time packing in my scale & 36 ft tape measurer just in case I get that whale of a fish
Today is the day to smoke that thing! I put it on the scale and it was 8 and a 1/2 lbs 28"clean'd out with head still on. So I would say close to 10lbs.
Tastes like Chicken!!
Dang nice fish Rob. Looking at the kind of scrappy fins, maybe one of the 'trophy' plants the State stocks?
I've used these types of online weight calculators and they're usually pretty close.
A definite hog!
the "big fly, big fish" idea works some of the time while out fishing, my fly box can have 6 of the same smaller flies and nymphs, but not more than 2 if even that of the same type of streamer
