I was fishing from my dock the other day to a school of stocked rainbows (I think) and I finally managed to get one of the buggers. For stocked fish, they're being awful difficult to catch this year. Last year I'd get plenty with a Panther Martin, but they won't even go for that this year!

Anyway so I got the trout in, and I couldn't figure out what exactly it was. The markings were more like that of a brown, but along the top of the fish and a little on the bottom it was emerald green. Also in the middle where the pink stripe usually is on rainbows it was a sort of pale gray-ish.

There's Atlantic Salmon in the lake as well, could it have been one of those buggers? I'm totally lost.


...maybe it was just a little seasick!
