    Default Redhorse Skunk Blown- Report

    Y'all may laugh at this, I don't care.

    I've been trying to catch one of these things for quite a while, and finally managed to




    The rest is kinda elegant, but the first 10% sure is ugly



    Some mushy pelletheads were landed too




    Nothing too exotic, but a good last day before going back to work.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    Oh man you would love the Erie tribs in spring! They flipping carpet the bottom! Sometimes on a crowded day in spring you can walk down the river and hear random g** damns and SOBs echo all around. You might catch 3 steelhead to 8 redhorse.

    Oh man! I'd rather catch a million pellet heads than those suckers! They really ruin a two or 3 fly rig with all their twisting and slime...

    I rarely catch them on the Arkansas, but for some reason we must have found a honey hole of them! We ended up pulling 5 suckers out of the same run. Is it spawning season for them already?



    I do have to admit...yours is much "prettier" than mine.

    Doubt it, I just caught this one because I was trying to pull trout out of the same cut in the bedrock.

    We've got loads of them, but they sure don't feed like bass. Bouncing a nymph works much better.

    That's a good one Cliff! I like the ugly fish, and I finally caught a small one this summer. Pretty good fight too.

    Cliff: Congrats! Kind of reminds me of the suckers we were landing on the Missouri last spring during high water.

    Fish are fish Cliff and that is a really good one to break the streak with. What did it take?

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
