    I moved my fish house to a laker lake. And here's my first fish there.

    That's a good size !! How many pounds do you think?

    As an aside, do you make filleting knives? I'd be interested to see what you use.

    A few days ago I noticed there was no Fishing 2019 thread and thought about starting one... then I realized I had not taken any pics of my catches this year! Oh well, I'm glad someone stepped up!... Here's a fat Bluegill from the other day I caught with my Dock Demon Deluxe!

    When I got home from work last Thursday afternoon I was dragging ass after a 16 hours shift. The weather was unbelievable so after a shower and cold beer I decided to slip away for just a couple hours. Good thing I did, for me not for the trout. Got him on my favorite lure for spinning rod, 1/32 oz gold jig with a watermelon pearl Gulp Minnow.

    We had some incredible weather here last week, so I took the day off work and snuck away for some time on the creek.

    What species are those? The first one especially looks like a Little Kern Golden Trout or perhaps a Kern River Rainbow, but you are not anywhere near their native range.

    Probably a steambred South Carolina rainbow. We have some very pretty fish in some drainages.

    Those are both wild rainbows from the Pisgah Forest in NC.

    @JB in SC we sure do have some great wild trout streams in SC if you're willing to get to them.

    I caught my first trout on a fly in 1965. I fished a lot of small streams over the years in GA, SC, and NC. I really enjoyed it when I was younger and more agile.

    I've pretty much forsaken all other fishing besides mountain fly fishing. I love getting out in the middle of nowhere with nobody else around enjoying God's creation for a day and testing myself against those wily trout.

    Is that a big Brookie, how big? It's pretty hard to tell the lakers from brookies when they get big and the tail is altered.

    It's a Brookie. I caught him in a delayed harvest stretch of state trout water so it may have been in the stream a year or a few weeks. I seldom keep fish but my wife asked me to bring a few home for dinner. The fillets had a wonderful color similar to salmon. My friends had a fit when I told them we ate him and didn't bother with applying for a citation.

    Somewhere between 3 1/2 and 4 lbs on a cheap set of pocket scales.

    Don't think I've ever seen a white perch. Are they as good eating as the yellow perch? Where are they? Nice fish.
