C,mon Madriap, it must have been in NZ, although fresh water pike are only in Britain & Europe so whats the
story, Mate? Did she go 7.5 klos ?
Dont say it was in Tassie in the river mouth!

I`d rather be fishin` !!

Gday Rainbow

This fish was caught whilst fishing for pike. Normaly trouts don´t take such big lures. Since that day i often hunt for trout with oversiced bait with good results. I don´t get so many, but when i hook a fish it´s siced like this one. The rainy was caught in the alps in Europe where i´m fom. We have excellent troutwaters over here. I didn´t weight her but she was heavy ;) !!

Nice fat trout. What brand of lure and reel were you using?

It´s a Daiwa Shogun reel, and a Turus Ukko lure. Turus Ukko lures are handcrafted in Finnland, very expensiv, but the action is amasing ans they catch a lot ;)
