There's always Troutstock!

He'd out fish us both anyway, fuck that guy Razz

In all seriousness though, I owe him big time. If it weren't for him sharing some (tons of) intel with me, I'd probably still be wasting my life chasing dinker browns on hay creek in MN. He and I are on a quest for a 16" brook trout, and we've got some pretty solid leads...


Yeah I am not gonna make Troutstock this year. We leave right after that for a week in Canada, so I will be packing, finishing my honey-do list, etc. that weekend.

That beaver pond is where I caught my tiger trout last year. I think that stream is one of the better ones in the state to catch them at least according to the DNR shock numbers.

I think you're mistaken, as there aren't any Brown Trout above the barrier in that creek. I've fished it at least 30 times and never seen one.

...I decided it was time to white trash up the place a little bit. What better way to do that than to go worm dunking in a beaver pond?



Hahaha, awesome post

Good call on the tires.

Why not up the ante? How bout a 20 incher? A 22 incher was caught a couple of years ago in WI.

Chasing Brook Trout already consumes my life, and chasing a 20" fish in the Driftless is nuts. If that were the goal of shebs and I, I think our lives would turn into that of Ahab. I've heard of rivers that produce 17" Brook Trout, but not much bigger. I've found a couple wild Brookie lakes on the N Shore of MN with the potential to produce 18" fish, but 20" seems like a reach unless you're talking Coasters. They've surveyed a few 22-24" Coasters up N of Grand Marais the past few years, finally seeing the benefits of the regs put in effect 17 years ago.
