Default Re: Other Fish than Trout Photos

These are an invasive species at the cabin and you are encouraged to kill every one caught. On a really good day you can catch a bunch of them, this trio is typical, 28 & 30" fish. Back in June and July I fished every day until I had between 3 - 6 of them and then took them up one of the nearby creeks to where there is an eagle's nest. The eagles had 2 young ones in the nest and I would leave the fish right across the creek from the nest tree. It only took a few days before the 2 adults would come flying from far and wide when they heard my boat coming upstream. They would land in the nest tree and watch as I put the pike on shore and leave. if you stole a glance over your shoulder while navigating the narrow channel as you left you got to see one of the adults swoop down to the stash.

It made me feel better about killing the fish, now we can some from each trip. I'll feed them again if they have young ones next year but I don't think they breed every year...

Oh yeah, the fish (other than trout)

Caught those on a Whitlock Sculpin There is a giant that lives just north of the cabin. This one eats ducks. I had it on 3 summers ago and lost it. This year I had a fellow from France toss a big pike fly to just the right spot and the big one went for the fly just as he stripped it. So close, maybe 4" behind the fly! We fished there for a long time but the pike would not come twice. I fish that hide every time there but have not got that fish.

We have a cousin of theirs here called the Muskie and although it is invasive some smart ass decided to give it sport fish status so you can't mass kill them.

Rocketbomb,

I've never seen trout with that coloring or spot pattern before. Those are beautiful fish. They almost look like a hybrid between a brown and a cutthroat.

Great catch!
