The morning was unique. I started at 10 am fishing. No hits for the first hour. Was about to give up and then they turned on. When I say they I means 6 to 10 inchers. It was almost like I was behind the stocking trout. The water is not designated trout water so I knew this was impossible. Typically I catch 10-12 trout in this stretch and they are 15-19 inch range. I caught 20 little fish sticks....bang bang....bang... Then it it dried up again. I told myself I was going to give up if I didn't catch a decent trout in the next five casts. I let the cast fly and it was freight trained. This thing was one of the most powerful small stream trout I have ever had on. I couldn't control it at first. It hunkered down and refused to come off the bottom. I thought it was either hooked up in some roots or absolutely huge. I could feel its power and i got really fired up. Finally I got it to come the surface and I saw how wide it was across the back and it really looked deep. To make a long battle short....I landed it and i guess it to be an eyelash under 20 inches but it was twice as wide and deep as a typical trout its length. And it did NOT like its photo taken.
