Just got back from 2 weeks on the Sutton River.. Talk about epic.. Polar bears and brook trout, can't beat that combination! Biggest fish were around 4.5lbs or so, but we were catching 50-100 of them EACH per day, lol! All on big top water mouse patterns, you can't beat that!
Caught this nice smallie down on the river the other evening. Hit a white buzzbait like a freight train right at dark.
Nice bass indeed. We caught about 30 of these last weekend. I was using the fly rod, the boys surface lures. They were unbelievably acrobatic (4' out of the water!) and parasite free, so we kept 6.
We're going back for more "triple headers" this weekend.
I was fishing for pinks over the weekend. They were not really interested in food any more, I literally bounced a fly off a surfacing male's nose without eliciting a reaction
We then switched to "Fire tiger" Rapalas with pretty good success. I assume we were appealing to their territorial nature. At one point I set the hook on a nice male, only to have most of his face come off. That one was definitely past his prime (puke_smiley.gif) We called it the salmon of the zombie apocalypse.
