I love fishing for smallies at Horsetooth. I fish from shore because I dont have a boat. I have been cathching a lot of stocker rainbows lately with an occasional 16 incher. Much to my surprise Monday I caught a monster. I thought I had a nice size smallie until a huge rainbow emerged with my tube jig in the corner of it's mouth. This fish was 27". Huge, for me anyway. I love Horsetooth!
I didn't get a picture. I laid it next to my fishing rod for a picture. Couldn't get my touchscreen phone to work with my wet hands. The fish started wiggling and I couldn't keep it from sliding back in the water. My tube jig was still in the corner of it's mouth. It snapped my line and swam off. I was heartbroken that I didn't get a picture. Next time I'll make sure to have my net with me.
