Your best looking catch.

Post by Brownie » Mon Feb 11, 2019 5:14 pm

Hi guys, posted the same around the site upgrade and it seems to have gone, here it is again.
Your best looking catch. Fish, crab, yabby or anything fishy. Fresh, salt, carp the lot. Have seen some great examples of all over my years fishing but not recorded others catches or enough of my own, much before phone cameras and digitals. Throw em up if you have any, love to see them.
This is a trout I got, around 3 to 5 yrs ago. Caught bigger but as soon as I saw this gem on the end of my line I was desperate to land it. Big relief when it was in the net. 2 1/2 to 3 lb.

That’s a ripper fish there Brownie :thumbsup:

My best Redfin, caught at Lake Wendouree. A mate bought a few of those cheapo “pen rods” for a laugh, casting a small hard body the tiddly rod buckled then the fish put up a good fight trying to tangle me in the rowing lanes. It was a fatty that went 46.5cm.

I flogged that tiny combo on my next few outings managing to land pinkies, flathead, squid and a gummy. It did surprisingly well until the plastic reel seized up.

How's the blue, flouro/iridescent, magic the colours of some things in nature.
The trout? Brook trout? Never caught one of those. But whatever it is its a looker mate.

Not my photo but it's one I found on the interwebs that really stood out for capturing a moment of sheer joy!

This was my best ever looking wild brown trout taken in a river, caught & released this 8 lb 8 oz brown on the last day of the trout season.
Two days earlier I caught a 5 lb 4 oz wild brown trout in the same river.. I probably have a few rainbow trout that are just as good in looks too..

cheers
