    Rainbow with an assist from Mrs. Mingo!



    This battle was friggin' epic....I hooked this fish and he went apeshit, ran downriver and sulked under the 405 abutment, deep into my backing. I couldn't follow due to a tree in the way.....and my line was caught in the branches. My wife helped by grabbing my 5 wt BllX while the 'bow thrashed waaay downstream. She hung on for dear life while she was "coached" by some scuzzy-toothed white trash numbskull with a giant blue parrot on his shoulder. I scrambled downstream, grabbed a stick, leaned out, hooked the line and somehow managed to handline this beauty in for a couple quick shots before the release. I wish I had it all on video! You can see my backing...I still didn't have time to reel everything in since I had to get this bad boy back in the river.

    That is a beauty; the fish, I mean.


    By now it's probably been consumed by a Schlitz drinkin', wife beatin', tank top and mullet wearin', smelly, trailer park livin', unemployed, crack usin', no teeth Cedar River poacher. (no, I don't mean Mingo!). :-)


    Sorry to be such a downer; it's just a shame to see fish like this disappear from this fishery.


    But, that's another story!


    Way to go, Mingo!
