Big brown

Recommended Posts

Today while fishing for pike on my local lake my friend drops down a gold jig and a waxie under an icebuster bobber. Were talking to each other when for no reason nothing on the vex he gets this hit and this "thing" starts taking his drag on his panfish rod that only had 4 lb test on it. The fight lasted for a good 5min when the trout swan under the hole and took off again. After another 5 min the trout tired out and we got the big baby on the ice. The slobbo measured 25 inches and was full of eggs. I am not much of a trout expert just wondering what this baby might haved weighed.

Cool that you let it go. Do they spawn in lakes? I've only caught rainbows before in the mine pit lakes near crosby. Just curious about the spawn deal.

I really dont know about the spawing situations in the lakes this is something to ask Renneberg about. For this lake it used to be an old sand pit it reaches depths about 75ft but the majority of the lake is less than 20ft.

Yes and no. Brown and rainbow trout cann't spawn in lakes. They require moving water to flow over their eggs. Brook Trout on the other hand can spawn in lake but they require springs. They lay their eggs on top of the spring and the water coming up out of the spring turns the eggs keeping them well oxygenated.
