Here's a compilation of fishies that I have caught this year around my new home in Oscoda. As you can see, it's been a good year, and I found quite a variety of fisheries. Enjoy!!

P.S. Let's see some of YOURS!
No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

I had some really good fishing this year, but I forgot to take pictures. Sorry.

Those are some really great pictures.

Great photos, Jonathon, I haven't caught a red eared sunfish since boyhood. It it's the same species, we call them shellcrackers in the South. The ones in the South like crustaceans. And that one brookie has brilliant coloring. Looks like you had a good year. I don't take photos, but had a pretty good season once the water came down here in PA. My best fishing was probably Trico fishing, not so much for the numbers or size, but for the challenge, and I caught the biggest brown ever on a Trike one early morning this July. I also had a couple of decent days on the Delaware, something that always makes me happy, since that river has beat me up more than once. We'll just have to see what weather and bugs the coming year will bring.

What type of fly is in the rainbows mouth? Does it catch a lot of trout for you? What materials did you use to tie it.

Thanks,

Sam

Wbranch, i think im going to need a microscope in order to see those fish that you caught. Why post pictures with such small trout???

Matt,

I'm not the techno guy, but maybe, if you have your pictures also stored on your computer somewhere, try going in from the "photography" section as a new topic. Maybe that would display them in all their glory and an easier to see size...If you don't know how to do it that way PM me and I'll explain...I actually don't know how to do it via Photo-Bucket or Facebook...

Jess...You shouldn't tease your uncle Matt...:) The apple didn't fall too far from the tree...I'm not sure but I think the old man's been fishing Montana since before you were born...:)

Spence,

I'll try your suggestion. I used to have no problem copying a picture from my Photobucket account and pasting it into a thread or post. But about six months ago I noticed the problem and have stopped posting pics.
