Another perch upgrade and my personal best. Probably my last upgrade though I'd be thrilled to catch a bigger one. Northland jigging spoon fire tiger, no bait. This warm weather and wind is trashing the ice. Hopefully the ice survives the next two days so we don't have to start over again. Six inches and shrinking. Main reservoir is open water.

That is American Falls again? 12.5 inches.

Do you fish every day? Smile

I saw a shirt recently that said "I could probably survive a day without fishing, but why risk it?" I'm thinking you need that shirt. Wink

It was American falls. I try to fish everyday if the weather is partially agreeable and I think I may catch something. I like that saying.

American falls rainbow on the perch colored jig in his mouth. I left it there because I don't remember the name of it. Tipped with minnow today.

Nice fatty! 20.5 inches. Looks a bit like a Lindy Slick Jig to me, but I can't tell for sure.

That's what it is called. Thanks. . It was one of the fattest trout I've ever caught. Still swimming so I can catch him next year.

Got you down for 27.5 on the carp. Nice fish!

13.5 on the brown. I'm giving you 16 on the cut, but that should technically be disqualified. Please get the whole fish and measure in the pictures so I can see the whole fish and tape.

The carp replaces the chub submitted, so I didn't score that.

Because of the curved tail, I'm only giving 20 inches on the channel cat. Please try to eliminate that in future photos. It skews the measurement.

Made my first ever trip to bear lake, and caught my first bonneville cutthroat. I fished 2 days sunrise til past dark and today from 5.30 until noon. I caught only two macks, five cutthroat, and three whiteys. Pretty slow. Everybody I ran into kept saying you should have been here last week (figures).the first mack I caught was incredible. I've never had a fish be unstoppable through the ice for so long. He made one huge run that took me to within 20 yards of spooling me before I finally turned him. The Mack is the only one that needs scored. The tape is not straight past my board, but it's not a contender for biggest fish so all I need is 25 from it. I was in a hurry to get it back down the hole. It's the biggest fish I've ever caught and I asked my neighbor on the ice to come take a picture for me. caught him yesterday on a blue northland jigging spoon tipped with crawler. One other thing, that ice is the weirdest I have ever been on. Every morning it will instantly shift 6" one direction with no warning at all followed by a huge bang all the way up the lake. It's the weirdest feeling I assume similar to what an earth quake feels like.

It's clearly 25 inches. That's what I put you down for.
