Didn't weigh it, but it was easily 8 lbs., could have gone 10. Measured about 28" on the pontoon stripping apron ruler. The picture isn't good, but you can get an idea of the shape. It was a total freak. If the rainbow colors would not have been so apparent, I'd have first thought it was a LMB. The girth was probably around 20". The mouth and jaw were square, and large enough to inhale a small ground squirrel. Took a Sheeps Creek about 4' below the surface, fished with a CGR 7' 4/5 glass rod which was pretty maxed (that's being generous) by the time I got her to the pontoon. This water is odd because although we're fishing in 12-15' of water in 49-52 deg. temps with a weedy bottom, regardless of the size they don't seem to react to midges or emergers at all, even though we can see them gulping. The only presentation that seems to work is a small selection of streamers, fished with a hover line with an ultra slow troll and hand twist retrieve. I use a 5' hover clear polyleader on a floater; others use an Airflo slow .5 ips intermediate clear line. The majority of the trout 6 lbs. or better I've caught have been in December - March in varying elevations, water temp right around 50°, all on streamers. Only a couple of them have been good fighters, this not being one of them. Just some good pulls with a lot of weight. .
