Jim lifts up two "reel" big smallmouth bass he caught
on Otsego Lake on the morning of August 4th.
That fish on the right weighed in at 4 pounds!
Awesome fish, Jim!
Jim's dad, Steve shows off a nice smallmouth bass and a
good sized largemouth bass he caught while fishing
on the morning of August 4th July 24th on Otsego Lake.
Both fish weighed in at 3.5 pounds
Steve and his son, Jim, display the four biggest bass
they caught on Otsego Lake on the morning of August 4th.
Looks like Jim beat his dad and won the big fish contest
with that whopper smallmouth on the right!
Janet and Doug show off four of the many big smallmouth bass
they caught while fishing on Otsego Lake the morning of August 7th.
Andrew picked the right dry fly and worked on this big, wary, trout
until he got him to take. Here he plays it carefully, but the fight is not over.
The big trout were rising on this "secret" pool on the West Branch of the
Delaware River on Thursday afternoon, August 2nd, but they were very
selective! Andrew was the only fisherman in our group good enough
or lucky enough to hook a big one!
In this shot, Andrew gets ready to net the big trout!
The battle is won and the big brown trout is netted! Great job Andrew!
Andrew shows off the big brown he caught on a #18 blue winged olive
dry fly. You think he enjoyed catching it??
Take note of the "Trout and About" hat. That hat must have been the difference
as no one else in our group wore that hat and we caught nothing..
A final shot of the big 18" brown just before it was released.
Andrew revives the big fish and releases it into the 52 degree water
of the West Branch hopefully to be caught again!
