    Here's the story of the big one that got away. Penn slammer III 7500,65 pound braid, 80 pound fluorocarbon on the jig. Andrew locked the fish up and battles for 20 minutes. We switched and battled this fish for another 30 minutes when Ryan snaps the new Carnage penn jig rod rated for 80 pound. The line held, so I spliced it to a Penn 80 conventional. We battled this fish another 30 minutes only to break it off. After a Hammerhead over 100 and a bull over 200 this fish was way bigger and prob not a shark. πŸ˜ͺπŸ˜ͺ. We just wanted to see it. Back at it tomorrow. LOCKEDSTRONG.

    Well, I told the guys it's been mostly browns lately with a couple steelhead mixed in. Today we could not catch a brown trout till the end of the day. All the spots where I've been getting browns we got nothing. Good thing a few steelhead decided to bite. πŸ‘πŸ». Tough bite but we looked ok at the end of the day. All released to fight another day. LOCKEDSTRONG 2017.

    • Skip Wells Nice!
    • Steven Day Most people would kill to look as alright as you
    • Tom Quinzi Hey, those guys look familiar :). Thanks for a great day Kevin!

    A huge water drop to start the morning. Mike and Joe with a few nice browns. Always released to fight another day. LOCKEDSTRONG

    • Mark Minard Are you seeing more browns or just repeat offenders?

    We knew we were in trouble when Nick caught one on the first cast of the day. The Jinx. 😬. Not a bad bite for brown trout but the steelhead were very tough. Tom fought a large for a long time only to break him off close to the boat. For the cold water temp it had to be very big. πŸ˜ͺ. Always need the story of the big one that got away. Lol. Great day to be on the river. Always released to fight another day. LOCKEDSTRONG.

    A little snow, a little rain and many fish. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜ƒ. Tom was on fire today. Chris was having some bad luck but still captured some. A great day on the river with no ice in the guides. All released to fight another day. LOCKEDSTRONG.

    Brutal conditions for Mike and Phil, but we managed to catch a bunch of nice fish. The guide ice up and wind was not in our favor. Released to fight another day. LOCKEDSTRONG.
