Well, I've just got to share the great day fishing I just had. It was my first time fishing the Alouette and my first time fishing in years. After about an hour and a half of nothing, I looked over to see my rod bent right over, HOLY SHEET! My wife got the other rod in and turned of the boat and I knew I had a great fish on. Took about ten minutes to get him in. My best guess would be about 10lbs and about 28". I wasn't sure what kind of trout it was, but I later checked online and believe it to be a bull trout. Large head, silvery body with red dots, white leading edges on all fins, blackish gums and TEETH galore. I cut the hook and let him go for another day even though my wife and kids wanted him on the bbq. Man did that make my day.:thumbup: And yes I got video to prove it, sorry for the editing.
