    CHUBBB CLUBBBBBBB!!!!!!!! @CJS21 @MusicCityBass @crookcody19 not everyday when you're fishing streamers and catch a chubzilla, also not everyday the chub is ...more bigger than the trout. This creek chub was about 7" so we will set the bar there to be beaten in the 2017 Chub Club.

      Yes just chub no shiners @lhp9

      Do only creek Chub count, because 7" is around the average for Utah Chub in big lakes.

  3. Details: Golden Rainbow Trout

    Caught a nice holdover rainbow very far downstream where the trout are supposed to be, and the trout usually die off when the water temps reach 75°+ so this ...more is a very unusual catch.

  4. Details: Flathead Catfish

    Ok I have an even stranger story than @seaturtles gar on bread. About thirty seconds after I was attacked by a 12" crawfish I ran out of the water and was standing ...more on the bank. Suddenly this 10lb flathead low key fell out of the sky nearly missing me by 2ft. Yes it fell out of the sky, if it had hit me or might had killed me. It had a gash on its belly from where a raptor was carrying it and ⬇️

  5. Details: Golden Rainbow Trout

    Tried a new spot on trammel. Water was high but water was clear so I drifted a trout magnet and caught only one trout and a nice chub. Put a Roostertail and caught ...more 4 in a row. Cow fields and bluffs made it a pretty stretch of the creek, but with little or no cover in the creek the fishing wasn't to good. I'll come back but it's not a new favorite spot. Sunny 55°

  7. Details: Golden Rainbow Trout

    My first Trammel creek trout on the fly rod. Very high water called for streamers so I could cover water to find those wolf pack trout. The creek was 2ft higher ...more the it was supposed to be from rains. Fish were holding in pools with current. Very little striping more just letting the clouser minnow sway in the current. Also tried a woolybugger but only caught chub. Caught 6 trout in all

  8. Details: Golden Rainbow Trout was a cold one, actually felt like winter. Trout were in deep pools with lots of current or hugging the bottom under the bridge. There were trout varying ...more from 6-19" so idk what the KY DNR was thinking when they were stocking. Vertically jigging crappie jigs over the bridge, and drifting a SJW. Spitting snow and 30°

    1. King_Fisher 0
      Good haul!
  9. Details: Golden Rainbow Trout was cold. First cold day we've had, 30° with little spits of snow.

  10. Details: Spotted Bass

    Nice little spotted bass on the Nikko baits Tadpole. Just bumping it along the bottom. Caught probably 15 smallmouth and rockbass on a t-rigged River bug and tadpole. ...more Lost a monster smalljaw on a t-rigged UV speed craw, Spit the hook. Water was high and murky. Fish weren't really biting, I tried everything. Frogs, x rap, dropshot, t rigged plastics, and spooks. Fish were concentrated to pools.

      Thanks and Yeah @matt I'm in search of a big fish though, I've been in kind of a big fish drought. I've only pulled three good smallmouth out of creeks ...more this year and I need bring that number up.
