Hey Guys, I trust you all had a safe, meaningful, and enjoyable holiday season. My time off was made more special by the trout I caught on a guided fishing trip with Michael Frank, again. I was home (Columbia, SC) for the Christmas, so I hired Mike to take me and buddy out on the Lower Saluda River (below the Lake Murray Dam). In short, JACKPOT! I landed a 22″, 4 lbs 10 oz. brown trout. It was the bigges trout known by the guide to be taken from the Lower Saluda. It actually broke his record of a 21″ brown.
I caught several rainbows, too. Two were tagged by the SC DNR. I plan to submit the tag numbers to the DNR for accoutability purposes (as requested by the DNR). Plus, I caught one bow on one of Craig Reindau’s chartreuse Wee Willie Wigglers. I included two pics of it, too.
See you next Wednesday. Happy 2013!
