8.0" Brown Trout caught by Brian Shea fishing on Monday December 24, 2012 at 12:27 near Farmingdale in Monmouth County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a nightcrawler

It was a chilly 21 degrees and the eyes on my rod kept freezing up but it didn't matter. The trout were biting. I got 15 brown trout between 7-10" in a little over 2 hours. It makes for some nice Christmas Eve fishing. Then I stopped at the Rancocas Creek on my way home and caught a nice pickerel on 4 lb line.

These fish were on the small size. They have to be 9 inches to keep but its not worth keeping fish that small. Unless you plan to cook the whole. Brown trout get much bigger. I think like 15-20 pounds or bigger.
