Are you kidding me! Those are some big brookies! Did you weigh or measure any of them?

Those first three are salmon that they painted to look like brookies.

trapingaddiction/not to often do i weigh them,but i do measure a few of the bigger ones over 20".Here in nipigon you can only keep one if it is over 22", there is quite a few over 22" but you have to work for it .The river closes to brookies on the 15 of this month planning one to two more trips before it closes and an over nighter.

hoping to have more pic's before it closes,till next time Tim

Here's a "football" from an alpine lake in Colorado. The lake is lousy with scuds.

I haven't been there in quite some time Len. As you know I got started there on the Coaster restoration discussion. When that ended there just wasn't much else there to keep me interested. Looks like you've been having fun lately..

The upper river is awesome. A 15 mile boat ride would have put you guys at the Virgins. That's big Trout country for sure. How was the last trip of the season? Unfortunately I had to work on closing day. Same old story. Too much work and too little play...

    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles.
