Well, after a quick day of wetting a line yesterday, didn't think that I would make it out today. Woke up at a bit after 9 in the morning, looked outside and the weather looked good. Played on here for a bit, then figured what the heck, I'm going to head out. Made it to a spot that I had been thinking about trying for a while, but hadn't in a couple years at about 11:30, wandering in threw the bushes finding a rather nice piece of emerald green water, the vis was good at about 3 feet or so. Made a couple casts in close, nothing. Then spotted a nice seem about 80 feet or so out. Made a cast into the seem, about 10 seconds nto the drift, I feel a bump. Hookset came up empty, but I did have a shredded roe sack, so I throw another one on, plant a cast in the same spot and what would you know, another bump, so this time, thinking I set the hook to fast the first time, I give it a count to one and the float rockets under again. Set the hook and GAME ON!! :eek: A beautiful steelhead comes rocketing out of the water and proceeds to cartwheel for what seemed like forever, she then catches some water and goes on a real nice run down river. Now at this point, I have probably about a 100 yards of line out, so I take off after the hot fish, crawling under a couple of trees and stumbling on rocks. Finally I have gained ground and this beauty is sitting right out in front of me holding. I am not sure who is more tired me or the fish!! ;D Soon after that, this piece of chrome comes to hand.


So after the day was 2.5hrs of driving and about 30 min of fishing including one heck of a battle!! :D
Was also the first time out with the new combo!! Which worked awesome. Didn't get to use it much :D, but it performed flawlessly. ;)

Nice fish Big Steel and Birdman! The bloody photo is hardcore! I know of a lot of magazines down south that would love to publish that photo! No doubt the fish went to good use - roe, bbq or smoker - you can't really tell with all the gore! ;D
