Nice dang Pike! This is my latest trophy size fish. I got it on the 5th. I caught three in an hour and a quarter and lost a big one. The smallest was 22 1/2'. This one is 29 3/8".

This isn't a real sought after gamefish, but it is the biggest Rock Bass I have ever seen.

Beautiful trout!!

I really miss hunting those browns. There are not any creeks with a population of trout that I can count on here. (Matsu Valley) The fish are on the move constantly. They follow the salmon up the rivers and creeks then they drop back to either the sea or the big rivers in the fall.

Down East I could count on finding fish when I went to the creek here it is a quest. I'm going out tomorrow to look for some rainbows in a local creek.
