23.0" / 4.0 lb. Brown Trout caught by Chris DeMartine fishing on Wednesday April 29, 1998 at 09:15 in South Branch Raritan River near Flemington in Hunterdon County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a 1/8 oz. Rooster Tail (Royal Coachman) a In-Line Spinner

My friends had caught about 2 dozen rainbow trout & I had only caught one fish. So I switched to the rooster tail & started killing them. I caught the only two brown trout of the day, and the smaller one was still over 2 pounds! I thought I had snagged a carp when the big one hit. I had only 4lb. test and it took a long time to chase this fish in the current. I borrowed my friend's net to land both of them.

Nope – I’m in NH now. I missed my opportunity! Have a trout stream in the backyard now: http://www.mascomariverfishing.com
So, I’m not complaining.

Great fish? Have you ever fished the Manasquan river for sea-run Browns? It's fun.

Thanks Al -- I must say that you should be a corporate spokesperson for Hooked-In. I read all of your comments this morning. Thanks for all of the kind words. Good fishin'...
