      @MusicCityBass No, red eyes do not indicate that a separate species. All bass have the trait to have red eyes, with the exceptions for only having red eyes are Rock ...more Bass and Redeye Bass (go figure lol

      @wyldechylde77 that is correct. Redeyes are found in the far southeast part of the US above Florida

      Smallmouth Bass with red eyes are actually quite common. It is not a hybrid, just a normal Smallie. A Redeye Bass (NOT the Rock Bass) is a different species altogether ...more and as far as I know not found..

  5. Details: Coastal Cutthroat Trout with a 3 Fly Rig 4x Flourocarbon Tippet 9FT 4WT

    Spent some time sight fishing and hooked into a bigger rainbow but lost him when he started running so I moved into some faster moving water. Caught some small rainbows ...more and immediately knew I had gotten something bigger when I heard the drag on this nice cutbow.

      good job
  6. Details: Golden Rainbow Trout with a 9', 5-weight fly rod, indicator, and multiple different flies.

    Duane Redford was my fishing guide. He took my dad, uncle, and myself on our first fly fishing trip in July on the South Platte River. We all caught over 20 rainbows ...more a piece (no exaggeration).

      @bassman3869 I don't know where you are but on the streams by me I'd be pretty pumped to have a 20fish day.

      They were between 13-19 inches. But we're talking over 60 in a few hours I thought that was pretty good.
