Pictures of Fish, Page 2

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 one of the nicer pike my dad caught on this trip, around 30 inches. From Minto Flats in Alaska.

My dad was messing around with this pike for about 10 minutes with various goofy weedless lures with mediocre hooking quality, and he kept missing it.  Finally he threw on the only lure a spin fisherman ever needs, the Heddon Lucky 13 (my favorite for many years before I started fly fishing), and he caught the fish on the first cast.  Not only did he hook it--he also snared it. From Minto Flats in Alaska.

I was disappointed at first to find that all the risers one evening were fallfish, but I had fun once I adapted my expectations and started catching fallfish over 15 inches like this one. From the Beaverkill River in New York.

There are few sights more promising than a large pool on the Beaverkill full of steady rises to a parade of fallen flying ants.  It was a bit of a let-down, however, to learn that most of the rises were from fallfish like this one, and there didn't seem to be a trout in sight. From the Beaverkill River in New York.

Maybe I should have edited my fingers out of the picture to make this smallmouth look a little bit bigger.  I would have to pretend that the size 18 ant in its mouth was, I don't know -- a jointed Rapala? From the Beaverkill River in New York.
