Mantua
11.5" Cuttroat Trout

With that lack of any vertical bands I am thinking it's a bear lake cutthroat that slipped out of the Mantua hatchery?

I agree. It does look like a Bear Lake/Bonneville cutthroat.

I think you just put the nails in the coffin, I don't think I can beat you anymore since there's no ice on a pond in the state with bass or crappie, I don't think i can catch you even if I beat you on Mac and Burbot... congrats well fought out season... Still may try to push you though... Later Jeff

That's funny Jeff. I had the exact same thought about the Trout category when I saw that Bow you just posted. What a hog! I've been chasing that #1 Trout spot hard this year. I easily caught 40+ fish at Strawberry and not one was over the slot. Congrats on a reel beauty there! Like you though, I'm not done yet Wink

You have sure worked hard this year and traveled a lot to work this contest the way it should be done... Looks like it might pay off for you... Not sure if Redfrog has any options left open to him, but he's probably the last one you will need to conquer for the title... Good luck... J
