    Default first catches of the year!

    Just thought I would start a fun thread and throw in a few pics. I know there are threads with fishing pics in them, but I figured one dedicated to the first fish of the season might be fun. I included a bass I caught last month while in Tennessee, as well as my first Alaska trout. I believe it was a stocker, but it sure was pretty. Yes I threw it back, and yes I was fishing in a lake.

    Holy Smokes, where did you land those Rainiers? I thought that brewery went under some time ago...

    Default the R

    Vitamin R sold out, they are brewed in Irwindale, CA now. Different recipe too. Not nearly as good as the old stuff.

    Pat,

    I thought you were against keeping wild trout?

    Beautiful fish!

    I'm heading out to Willow today. Maybe I'll have pics of my first wild trout of the year this evening.

    I've got nothing against keeping wild char in saltwater when they swallow the hook... (Seriously they really like deer hair for some reason)

    Just jokin' with you a bit. Outside of nailing the "kings" left and right down at twin lakes I haven't been out a whole lot. We'll have to wet a line before the summer is over.

    Me neither... I had some fresh sea-run dolly cooked over the fire while camping on the beach out from Homer last weekend. Man, that hit the spot.

    Nice steelie monkey!

    Hubby and I went to Homer and tried our luck. Didn't catch much on Saturday. Next day was different. While I slept in, he fished the lagoon on the spit on the outgoing tide early Sunday morning and brought back a nice 15 pound king. Grilled it on the beach that evening! Yum!!!

    Congrats on the king, kimjn!

    No picture of the year's first fish... but here's my first fish of 2010 caught on a dry fly. Nothing special, but it was good to catch some fish on the rise again.
