first cast!

This may well be the deepest trout i have ever caught. It was a great catch. My 11 and 3 year old sons were with me to share in the moment. My 11 year old would have more than likely caught this fish had he not got snagged in some weeds on the opposite side of the stream.

Whoa, that's a hell of a catch. Even better you had your kids there to enjoy it too.

Anybody know how I can get to these Pictures? They are on a computer that I have but has since crashed. I also posted them on another forum but cant seem to find the post. Thank for any help you have.

That cool moment to share with your boys, I bet they will remember that you caught that fish longer than you. Since the pictures are unavailable at present give us a description of your catch?

Congrats as well!

BTW it looks like the runoff from snow melt is over for most of our SE MN streams. Streams should start to drop and begin the clearing process starting tonight. I would not be surprised if many streams are close to normal by Wednesday and back to decent clarity as well.
