Tom had already battled a couple of scrappy smallmouth bass on an Oxbow pattern Rat-l-Trap when a BIG fish bent his rod double. Thought it was a big pike. had to chase the fish downstream, then upstream with the MinnKota, netted just before it reached flooded timber–a 23″ brown trout!
Tom & Buck also caught a couple of quality walleye, numerous SMB and WB…every one of them on that Trap! This is the 2nd brownie in my Lund this year. The first, a 17″er hit my signature series Teddy Cat. I know personally of four other brownies caught on the pool this Spring. More than I can ever remember.
