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.

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
