Entered an online tournement. BountyFishing.com The tournement rules were all trout species 22" slot which ment 22" was the max, you can enter...(please see full rules on bountyfishing.com)
I fished hard all week coming up will some decent trout on friday, 16's and 17's...but not the one that could get into the money. Yesterday got skunked because of off water and bad levels. Today was the last day of the tournement...infact it ends and midnight....
The day started slow, talked to some locals who had not gotten any bites or action what so ever. changed spots mid day...found the fish, hooked a nice 15"er, then lost a nice 16 or 17 at the bank. My friend drifted through just perfect and hooked himself a beautiful 19.25" rainbow. Sadly he didn't enter the tournement and there the beauty went, sorry no pic.....
Jelouse and patient, i fished hard my hopes dwendled when time past......
BOOM!!! "there he is" i said. a huge trout bit my line and was not moving an inch, i acually had to go to him, brought him to the nice sandy bank, my friend had landed him, we layed hgim out for measurement, got three very quick pics, and back he went, defenetly alive and kicking!!..

Wow, very cool. I didn't even know there was such a contest. I guess I am behind the times.
