      these were all caught on the same yakima bait co. rooster tail in the tiger pattern, dressed.
      i love this little lure.
      biggest one is third up from bottom, just over 17 inches.

      im located in the PNW, Washington state to be precise.
      went back this morning before work, holy sh*t was it cold.
      so much so that about 80% of the lake is now frozen over, i was able to coax two fish to hit my lure in the five to six feet of water i was trying to fish, it was one of the only spots to cast from that didn't have nothing but frozen water and thick ice in all directions, but unfortunately it wasn't very deep so fishing wasn't as productive today. i considered myself lucky to have the two i got. after three hours i packed it in and headed for work. cold way to start the day, but kind of rewarding. oh, used the same dressed tiger pattern rooster tail, just wish i could have fished the deeper spots.

      and in case you are wondering, the meat was nice and pink!

      Nice coloured up buck a buddy of mine got on a float trip we did this weekend. Fished both Sat and Sun and slammed them! One of the best days I've had this fall... Well over 25 steelhead on Sunday..

      water looks pretty brown from the pic, floating eggs under a slip bober, twitching jigs or throwing spinners if you don't mind my asking?

      The water was up over a foot from Saturday.. That fish was caught in one of the last holes we fished.. Buy the time we made it to the truck, the river was pretty much blown.. Started off the day with a good 1.5ft of vis and a nice green tinge.. Ended the day brown and with maybe 3-4 inches of vis

      As for bait running big loonie sized roebags in chartreuse/bright pink under fixed floats.. The river was ripping, I think I was running a 15gram float..

      One of my local lakes each year does a winter stock with HUGE brood trout, some measuring up to 28-30", and some weighing as much as 10lbs. I have been hitting this lake up each day on my lunch break from work, throwing a dressed rooster tail and twitching and slowly dancing it along the bottom and top parts of the water. The past two days I have gone I could literally watch these HUGE trout follow my lure in from the deeper spot i cast to and follow it in to the shore/shallow looking all pissed off but they never try to inhale it like im wanting. badly. each of these fish in this lake are bigger than any fish i have ever caught to date, should i maybe mix it up and try throwing some Rapalas? sinking or topwater and see if that initiates a take down? my heart was pounding out of my chest as i watched this huge brooder look as though he was going to nail my lure, was about the coolest thing i have seen in a while, fish that big would put up a hell of a fight on my light gear. any tips on getting them to strike? this is a selective gear lake, no bait, no scent, single barbless are the rules FYI....anybody?

      Try a plain silver or gold spinner, go bigger then you usually would since the trout are bigger. Make sure to slow the retrieval every few reels so the fish has a chance to catch up to the lure. I’ve never been able to catch anything a rapala, but I feel that’s more of a personal problem

      Winter fishing = slower.. I'd try some suspending Rapalas or similar where you could 'twitch twitch pause'... That will most likely get thier blood boiling...

      Remove the front hook and make sure you pinch the barbs on the rear treble...

      Awesome man! Where about's are you going? If you ever make it up to the southern shore of Lake Erie, there are a tonne of rivers I can recommend and give you a few pointers on

      BTW, they are called steelhead because their backs look like a cold blue steel.

      Good luck!

      Hope y'all had a good holiday weekend. I got to open my present early and spend all day Christmas Eve fishing....






      My brother in law makes custom rods in his spare time and he built me this nice 7 foot bass rod. He calls them D.I.P. Stix (his initials are D.I.P.), one of the best presents I've ever got. It has my name on it and everything.

      ^^ looks like a nice rod. if you know someone who makes them, then you have no excuse not to own about 20

      and on that note, i got a new musky rod for xmas so my count is up to 8. it may be time to sell a few
