11.0 in. Brown Trout caught by Joe Brown fishing in New Jersey on 05/24/12
11.0" Brown Trout caught by Joe Brown fishing on Thursday May 24, 2012 at 08:45 near Budd Lake in Morris County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a spuddler fly pattern a In-Line Spinner by Joe's Old Lures

Strong little brownie. Caught him on my cheapo $10 spare rod (my good set up needs to be respooled), so I was doubly happy to land him. The hook got him right in the corner of his mouth, but it bled like crazy. Thought I got his gills at first. He swam away easy enough, so as long as the heron that swooped by doesn't get him, he'll live to fight another day.

Joe. The only trout I keep are the one's that are stocked in our local lakes as you may seen on here. Other than that all released.

Angelo, I release most of them. I have two kinds of fishing trips: Therapy Trips and Mission Trips. Therapy Trips are when I jump out of the car, fish for 15 minutes, breathe some fresh air, get my head clear and my shoes dirty, and maybe catch something. I usually throw everything back on those trips. Mission trips are when I get the okay from the missus to neglect her and the kids and take a whole morning to fish somewhere where I don't normally get to go with all my gear. I feel obliged to bring back some dinner as recompense. Luckily, my wife can knows how to cook very well. How about you?
