that fish looks like it must have gone at least 10lbs, what a beast. What size rod and tippet were you using?

Where on the Soque did that come from? That fish would be measured, girthed, put on the wall. A very STOUT wall.

i should have included this info before
5wt Rod that i built myself. it was fun to land that hog on an rod that built, but i have to admit i was worried about my craftsmanship.
Here is another picture of a Soque Hawg my brother caught in November
HM, I believe I saw that fish earlier this month, She just smiled at me when she swam by ;)
A VERY VERY nice fish to say the least!!!

I've caught some big rainbows on the Soque usually on private land by permission. Nothing that would touch that, atleast not by a few pounds.
I caught my biggest Rainbow on public land last year and finally had to have it mounted after stalking him all season, That one would swallow mine! But hey it was sentimental I was as proud of 3 1/4 lbs. bow caught by the bridge than some of the 6-7 lbs. caught on private land. Goodness I don't where that was that sucker is HUGE!!!!!! CONGRATS

to fish a private section with rocketroy and lemme tell ya Honest to god i hooked a fish as big or bigger than that. i pulled in one or two in the 6 pound range well over 20 inhces and and a couple smaller unfortunatel lol .... but this fish made then look and feel weak it even jumped giving me a heartattack when it the water sounding like someone dropped a boulder off a cliff. that river has enormous fish in it.

How did those Big Rocky Mtn Trout get eastward? Nice fish......

Why do the fish get so big in the Soque as opposed to other streams in the Southeast? Is there plenty of water to fish if I drove down there? I've caught some nice fish on the Clinch, but nothing like that. Looks like fun.

i was fishing on privite land, with permission. i would not recommend fishing privite land without permission.

The fish get so big because they are fed daily. And, the fact that almost 100% of that river is privately owned and catch-and-release only, that means that the fish are protected from being harvested, so they get old, fat and stay happy.
