I like the 47 pounder. Most of the (very few) browns in Michigan's upper AuSable this Spring were around .47 pounds.


Tim...They were just hiding from you, my friend...J.R. must of told them you were headed their way and they hid up under some old logs stacked up against an under-cut bank...:) You scare them, sir...All those "old-timey" flies you tote around from the old legends of the Au Sable river valley...Madsen. Borchers. Roberts. They know they can't resist those things...Better just to hide.

Perhaps at age 70 they are just getting harder to see............

OK, so this guy from Georgia posts a question:
How big would you guess this trout weights?
and quite obviously fails to post the photo somehow. Start at the beginning and read the through the posts and you'll find out just how funny the whole thing became. We certainly know how to amuse ourselves with only the smallest excuse. Only on Troutnut.

Now that Jaird has finally posted the picture I would say that he is correct in his guestimate of between 10-15 lbs. However I think that could be narrowed down to between 10-12 lbs.

When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

What picture?

Reminds me of a time when a picture in our family photo album came up missing...

Lessee... February, March, ...

I respectfully disagree. It's clearly more than 10 pounds, and more like 12-14.

OK, one last adjustment to my estimate: 10.41 lbs. That's my story and I'm sticking to it...

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

I don't know Louis, if you examine the picture, a little more closely, I think that at that particular angle the girth looks a little exaggerated to me.

Hmmm. The angle may exaggerate the girth. OK, I'll go 11-12 pounds, but not an ounce less.
