a nice rainbow.  yes i ate him for dinner, but i am a culinary affecianado (spelling?).  i love to cook, and the only thing better than cooking fish, is cleaning, cooking, and eating a fresh rainbow.

Here he is... 2ft pickerel.  Caught him on an old fake worm with a jighead that i found laying on the ground at a local pond.  The best lures aren't the 7 dollar ones i buy, but the ones i find.

I am kinda bummed that I didn't get to go flyfishing yet this year. But everyone enjoys just going out to do some good ol' lure fishing. Got myself a few trout on the big lake here and also a 2 ft. pickerel. (biggest fish in my life so far) Figured I could share them with you. I know you guys would appreciate it.

That "brown" you caught looks like a brook trout to me....

figured someone would say that. all the photos i've seen of "brookies" shows they have a very distinctive red belly and are brighter colored than the one i caught. wasn't really sure which one it was but now i know.

my guess is its a brookie also...the white tips on the fins are a big indication. I don't see any worming on the back but I think we are losing that in the picture.

I don't know where you reside but my guess is either a brook trout or a bull trout. Light spots on a dark background definetly not a brown, a char of some type for sure. Perhaps a dolly varden but I would say with almost 100 percent certainty not a brown.
I have seen nothing more beautiful than the sunrise on a cold stream.

My guess would be a brookie. Do to his location its probibly not a bull trout. the white tips at the end are an indication along with the yellow spots with the very slight blue outlining. Still an awesome fish.

Just looks like a faded(or never colored) stocked brookie... nice pickerel by the way.
