Pictures of Fish

Believe it or not, sometimes I submit to the weather's mandate that I fish for lesser species than the noble salmonids. The temperatures soar in August and the trout take refuge in hidden spring seeps and the unfortunate hours preceding dawn. I yield to nature's demands, attaching beastly things to my tippet and lobbing them at the likes of muskellunge and smallmouth bass. Oh, life is hard!

This is my first (non ice-fishing) fish of 2011 and my best burbot yet, my first one of a respectable size, although they get much bigger. From the Tanana River in Alaska.

One strange evening on a classic trout stream had brought me nothing but fallfish (albeit nice ones) when I cast outside the main current flow at a fish rising to little flying ants in a back eddy.  It took and, much to my surprise, it was a sunfish I'd never seen before!  Turns out it's a red-breasted sunfish, a common species in the East. From the Beaverkill River in New York.

My dad finally broke his long, uncanny fishless streak with this nearly 2 inch long common shiner caught on a size 22 Serratella imitation during a Trico spinner fall. Heh heh. From the Namekagon River in Wisconsin.

Small burbot, but tasty!  If you think in units of brook trout, even the smallest burbot is a lot of dinner. From the Tanana River in Alaska.
