RE:Casting practice

As my memory of the fish fades, I really long for a picture as well. I stood out in the pissing rain on Sunday for two hours trying to repeat last weekend's encounter with the mystery fish. Nada.

Did see quite a few bait guys with trout and at least one land-lock over at Peter's Pond. Bite was off by the time I got there and I needed dry clothes in a big way so headed home long before dusk. Might get out again this weekend.

RE:Casting practice

Definitely piqued my interest... a picture would help tame my curiousity for sure (weather permitting of course!)

Forked, and pristine -- i.e. no scarring or raw hamburger from nest building. I really wish I had a picture of it. I'll just have to go back this weekend and catch him again

Your landlock will have a sharply forked tail, in contradistinction to a "square tail" brookie or some hybrid thereof.

I'm starting to think this was a tiger trout =&gt; <i> S. fontinalis x Salmo trutta </i> -- a cross between a brookie (explains the long mouth and blue spots) and a brown (teeth??).

...hope springs eternal.....

Caught what I believe was a land lock salmon this morning at Spectacle. Long slender body (about 14"), elongate mouth with slight hook in the lower jaw, multiple rows of very small, very sharp teeth, mettalic slate body with light blue spots near dorsal, pronounced nasal openings just above the upper lip, "hinged" head (lower jaw detached from skull cavity), eyes behind maxilla. Sound familiar to anyone?

I hung him in 2 ft. of sunlit water near a gravel point; hard fighting fish despite the cold; he took a gray drop-nymph.

I caught a few perch as well. Good to be on the water, but I need a sauna room to escape the chill I caught.

Good luck Al -

Wear the 'hope' on the inside!

I'd recomend Long-johns & Neoprenes! My hands & feet got pretty cold at Whites the other morning. Maybe the Cape has stayed a little warmer. BTW, My dad has done pretty well at Ashumet & Goodwill Park this time of year. Good Luck.

Come thrill to the delight of throwing a chilled line to a cold and numb body of water and other untold treasures!

If anyone is in the area of Spectacle and Peter's pond in Sandwich on Sunday morning around sunup, drop by and say howdy. I'll be the non descript guy dressed in seven hundred layers of clothes and one layer of hope.
