  1. She whooped me again at our favorite lake. The wind was ferocious, forty plus mph(sorry for the word shortcut old timers), and spotting fish with white caps was difficult to impossible. At one point waves were hitting a big rock and shooting spray high into the air much like the ocean. That actually happened to be the rock enlightened took here best fish standing on, a gorgeous pastel pink cut of around twenty five inches. I had chases and one or two brief hookups, but was schooled by my protege'. We stopped at Rufus on the way home and I somewhat redeemed myself with a ugly little hatchery brat,but not quite.
    Different fish in the pics, minutes apart. Then the last pic is what a bad fishing partner looks like when they're gloating up on the hill, realizing we're calling it quites when the other partner hasn't landed one. I believe it's called satisfaction.? IMG_20130413_170412.jpg IMG_20130413_171529.jpg IMG_20130413_171549.jpg IMG_20130413_173258.jpg
     
  2. Excellent report. Congrats to E, great last pic.
     
  3. Obviously the fish prefer your fishing partner because she is so cute! How did you end up fishing with a model? :) I do think you need to buy her a different hat. Oh, nice fish, BTW.
     
  4. OH,OH-faux pas alert! Gene, you never call a lovely woman cute! Haven't you seen Bull Durham?

  7. Good LORD! I'm really not a fan of stillwater, but after seeing all your posts, I constantly rethink my judgement. Pretty awesome to see lake fish bigger than most of my steelhead.
     
  8. Chased one bad boy down after tri missed it. Fantastic and rare day for me. The golden boy got skunked.....:)

  11. I'm with Luke - not really into stillwater fishing, but I may need to rethink that. Great fish!

    I assume you are fishing streamers?

  15. Trip, no offense man, but the reason we like the Triploid Junkie and Enlightened couple...well, the answer is enlightening! Great report, glad you two were out despite the harsh conditions. Hopefully this is the first of many fishing reports for you two this spring. I'm pulling for her to outfish you in each of them, but I know you'll hold your own. Great photos. Great fish. Great fishing partner. You two are doing it right!

  16. Man, that does it! I could never beat a report like this one! (Very nice!) I might someday catch me a whopper of a trout, if I'm lucky, but i just don't photograph all that nicely. I can't even qualify as a "hand model" any more.:D
    I guess my reportin' days are now over with.;)
