Ok you crazy fishing geeks. I had a lot of fun with the last photo comp, and with all the people asking if I will do another.... well what better time than now. I'm gonna change it up a little bit now. 1. You get one post for photos meaning you can only post the 3 photos allowed in it. (you can keep posting normal posts if you like.) This is only because I will be picking from the top fins up. 2. There will be 2 winners this time. One will be my choice and one will be most fins up. 3. Photos must be of fish this time around. (any species any size.) 4. this will go till July 8th. (just to give some time for people to fish and take pictures of what they really want.) 5. Vote. Please make sure if you post you vote. (If there is a tie for the voted photo I will have the people who tie upload a new photo and it will be re-voted on.
1. MA brown caught in the Dream Steam a couple of months back. She went just under 8 lbs and pushing 26Ē 2. Late season ice pike from the Mile. 3. My fishing buddies first ever Mountain Whitefish while drifting some flys in Rifle at about 11 PM

Ive heard stories about Centennial carp. Havnt fished there since the 80s. Hope to top all these fish sunday...The carp in the middle pic was 29" and 11lbs. One in the right photo was 11lbs caught on a UL.
pic 1: a very nice male cutbow my buddy got at spinney this spring..thing was just sooo tall. mouth full of chironomid midges, went 5.5lb and only 21 inches..talk about fat!
pic 2: a nice 20 inch brown i got while waiting on my friend to get to the river this spring..caught 4 20 inch trout before he got there...god bless the month of march
pic 3: a pic of my pb (in length) lake trout caught thru the ice the season before last. I went up on a monday and lost this fish under the hole after a 5 minute fight on a light weight rod...went back up two days later that wednesday and sealed the deal out of the exact same spot

1st is biggest: Zihuatanejo Mexico Blue Marlin 2 Ĺ hr fight. Unfortunately wasnt able to release it so donated it to the local fishing village to feed the unfortunate. 2nd : my Favorite fish Rooster Fish Cabo Mexico 3rd: My brother who passed away at age 38 on our family trout farm in LaSalle Colorado. Miss you and love you Scooter!
Before this year I mainly fished for trout since I was a little kid but branched out a little and got a PB and a few firsts to check off the fishing bucket list this year. 1)PB flathead @13lbs (in Iowa on a bluegill I caught an hour before) 2) first wiper I've ever caught (Colorado) 3) first Tiger Trout I've ever caught (Colorado)

Thanks to TADA32 and to everyone on the site for the fins up! my wife snapped that brookie release picture with lucky timing on a high-country lake. If only it didn't have those sun spots it would be a poster on my wall : ) Despite what the books and fly shops say, I LOVE fishing streams on sunny days as the water looks so clear and sometimes the water just sparkles around those colorful wild trout. Finally run-off is ending and the snow is melted so I'm excited about hitting the streams and lakes the next 3 months. Fish On!
