That's right. If that statement does not immediately blow your mind, go ahead and google "record rainbow trout" and get back to me. Of course, you don't catch a fish like that without an expert guide and captain, which was This Guy. We caught him trolling off a shelf in the Bay of Islands in Naknek Lake.
My parents visited here for a week and had the time of their lives. We also caught a bunch of Arctic Char in Margot Creek, and of course some sockeye salmon right here at Brooks River. My mom hiked up Mt. Dumpling on a beautiful day and got a bird's eye view of Brooks River. It's too bad we didn't take a good picture of the trout, now no one will believe us. The pictures we have don't have a point of reference so you can't tell how big it really is. But we measured it, 32 inches, and it was fat as hell too. Put it this way; it was way bigger than the biggest sockeye I have caught. It was huge.
Just for fun, here is a picture of me at Halloween dressed up as the guy who got drunk and chased bears through the river (see previous comments). Note that my coworker Greg looks way too much like me.
That's all for now catch y'all later. If anyone can send me a tape of the Jags first game, or the upcoming ones, let me know.
