The day I caught my monster/trophy size LMB, I knew I was done for the
! However, I had been fishing for a few
hours that day, and my hands had reached the point of being frozen anyway.
It did make all the other fish seem smaller, but I'm still chasing them all, right
down to bluegill
Speaking of bluegill, I caught this channel cat on a 4wt while fishing for
March bluegill with a #14 Green Weenie!
Those are size 13 boots, and while I didn't measure the fish, I did estimate it
to be 22-24 inches based on my stance. You can see the little Green Weenie
still in his lip, and I had to beach him to land him. He made several long runs,
and was a blast. I had just begun fishing when I caught him, so continued to
fish for bluegill...which seemed small that day
Tell your dad you heard someone caught a 30" trout where he was fishing....
