  • Walrus 27" kype jaw Brown

    We had a stain this morning, and what a wonderful stain it was. It was one of those mornings where you feel you have have a shot to make the Quality vs. Quantity bite worthwhile.

    I was up at 515 and in the water by 615, 30 minutes before sunrise. I had been trying to get this fish to bite again all week. I'm pretty confident this was the fish that I hooked about two weeks ago that got off.

    I legitimately thought I was hung for 3 seconds. That is until the first headshake. My rod was doubled over and I was moving the fish, but not turning it, so I knew it was a dandy.

    I saw him at about the 2 minute mark. At maybe 5 minutes in some awesome helpful dudes in a drift boat helped me net him. FOR ONCE I was able to get a good picture of one of my fish! Thanks a million guys!

    Anyways I'll stop rambling. 27 inches just north of 10 pounds or so I'd guess. Clean healthy release so he's back in there to dance again.



    Just a shot of how gnarly that gullet was! That fish could eat an 18 inch rainbow no problem.

                  Thanks yall! Fall is gonna be the time to go get em.

                  Fish like this validate getting up early and chucking big stuff for a few hours for sometimes a couple days on end without even a bite. It gets to where you question what your doing, but when it pays off its cool.

                  Gotta admit that dude had me thinking about the wall, but I want some little kid to catch it.

                              This is just sick!
                              Btw. I went out this morning and caught and released 6 stocked rainbows. Let the kids catch those....I want a shot at that monster. I hate to admit it but I would knock my own kid over for a shot at that one.
