I went down to the Elkton area today to fish with my girlfriend's uncle. I got zilch but Uncle Razor got this monster...Biggest trout I've seen(probably not sayin much)..We had heard they dropped a bunch of big pellet heads so I was surprised to see it was wild in the pics....(I was so excited I forgot to look)

Caught bobber fishin' eggs and powerbait..(then released) I wish my boat wasn't all tore up or I'd go troll there tomorrow...

That's a pig for sure! I doubt it is a wild fish, most hatcherys don't clip their trout, even brooders. From the looks of how beat up that tail is, and the opaque coloration, I would bet it is a hatchery brooder, but a great fish none the less.

I was wondering if they clip the ones they use for spawning....she was full of eggs and dropped a bunch on the dock.

Trapped inside my own mind.
Definitely a Nice trout for sure. With how tattered the dorsal fin and the tail are that fish is a hatchery fish, But that doesn't make it less of a nice fish..

just curious, did someone put this pic on the first forum page or is it automatically put up there?


"that doesn't make it less of a nice fish"

I think it would be much cooler if it were wild! (or if I had been the one to catch it!)

That's a huge freakin trout! Nice job!

The way his eyes look and how there is no slime left on him makes him look like he's been dead awhile. haha. Am I wrong?

You got me Mike! That fish was stuffed and I broke HER off the wooden plaque.......no seriosly she took a few seconds to revive but swam away all good...She did roll around on a dirty dock so slime would be tough to see...

Looking at that blunt nose and rubbed off tail it is deffinetely a brooder! Looks like Loon lake in the background maybe?

Not really in the Elkton area, but those clearcuts on the ridge might lead me to guess Cooper creek.

Last October i fished Cooper Creek for the first time. I hooked into 2 larger trout toward the back of the lake on the boat dock, both trout broke my line though.... I still want to go back and catch a trout instead of the blue gills that we were catching. Also i want to fish Ben Irving by winston, i drove by it just to check it out, seems like a nice lake.

Btw nice fish :)
