nice fish!! Memorial day weekend we went pan fishing where we were camping.. The weather has been so screwy that they weren't on their 'normal' beds. Normally we can just worm dunk on each side of a dock and just slay them. This time we had to take the pontoons out and go after them. Were able to catch enough to feed 20 adults (with side dishes). Love good old fish fries

More nice smallies!
Youre so lucky to have those.
There is a lake up in the mtns where I caught nice smallmouth like that when I was a kid
.
Always thought about going back and seeing if theyre still there.

Meanwhile, streams are fishing good.

These are from the trip before last.
Nothing but small rainbows friday.
Still huntin them 4lb rainbows for the smokers!
They were catching them all around me week before last. I got one to slurp up a night crawler and I missed him arrrgh!
It usually isnt this hard to fill the smokers. Im about ready to buy some fillets.

The 3 I kept for dinner.

Just got word last night that my mount is finally done! The guy does this out of his garage and refuses to upgrade technology.. so i have no clue what the finish project will look like.. outside of the rack lol.. told him where i wanted to hang it, and told him to use his professional opinion on the shoulder mount. It's my first mount so i had no clue.. he laughed and said "alright!"

Our best taxidermist did it out of his house. He was $100 cheaper than everybody else and did 1000 times better work.

Did he have any done or waiting to be picked up you could look at when you dropped yours off?

yeah he does amazing work! he had everything you could think of hanging up in his garage, include awards. He started doing it as a hobby, and now does it full time. He only takes in a certain number per season so he doesn't feel rushed and can still have a life (told me to call before i came out to pick it up because he might be out fishing lol).

my wife had called him while i was still 'up north' shortly after sending out the 'i got one!' photos/texts, and told him about the story behind it. He reserved a slot for me, but told me to rush home so he could start the process for him. So i left the next day following the morning hunt. Now i have to find a small chain and drill a hole through the shell to hang around his neck as he hangs on my wall

Im trying to get time to get my trail cams out. Gonna set up in an area where there were two albino fawns last season.
Should have some cool vids in a couple weeks if they made it thru the winter and the mtn lions or bears didnt eat them.
