    Thread after thread talking about pinning, beads, spoons on two-handers, plunking or plinking or whatever the hell you left coast rednecks call it,......but you'll tell this guy he's on the wrong site? I mean, I agree, but you guys are hilarious. Maybe you just don't want GL's guys here. Or maybe you can only deviate from one aspect of the title of the forum; you don't have to be from Washington, or you don't have to be fly fishing, but by god you gotta pick one or the other.

    Why do you need a weight estimate?

    Due to that fish being caught on a Rapala plug, I'm seeing an ad at the bottom of the page for men's fishing clothes from top Rapala brands. Weird.

    I catch all my fish with gear, remove the offending lure, then post saying I caught it on the swing with a traditional steelhead dry fly in my tweed jacket.

    I think the biggest issue here is not the lure, but thats he's a snowback.

    FWIW, my "don't plug us" was in jest. I like fish pictures. And I'm not sure if anyone disregards mid-westies, but I actually plan to fish the GR tribs for steel at leat once in the future...so no bias here :)

    Nope. You got it all wrong there Brady. But, do tell me why the hell this guy post up a pick of a chubby rainbow wondering how much it weighs. Is it a way for him to brag about his catch without just saying "look at the pig I caught." or what? Like I said photoshopped guppy, who the hell really cares? I don't. Don't give much of shit about how it was caught either. I do wonder why it was posted here and not on gamefishin.com. Oh wait, you don't think he was trolling do ya? Naw, you are right we are just a bunch short dicked winers that don't want any non fly fishing great lake posers posting on our board. You got me.

    You'd think with all the walleye fishing around me I'd know more about trolling, but I don't have a boat.

    Guys, I'm not trying to show off or start a debate about methods lol. I just want to know the weight of the fish that's all. I totally forgot about gamefishin.com, but I posted it there now too. Thanks for the responses so far. I now think it's somewhere between 16-17.5 pounds.

    Pay no attention. Most of the comments are in jest. Those that aren't, ignore. That's a nice fish.
