I’ve been gone the last four days, fishing the Flaming Gorge UT/WY for Lake Trout. Fishing was slow, fish finicky, got to spend more time on the water to learn how to fish’em, but I did catch several, including this 42″ 31 Lb Laker
Here is another picture, this one of a 30.5″ 12 lb Lake Trout. One can actually smile holding up a fish if they aren’t almost having a hernia doing it. The blood you see on the fish’s mouth is from my finger … Lake Trout have very sharp teeth. I always bend/break the barb on the hook and fish barbless. It tears up the fish less, the hook slides out easily, both out of the fish and out of my leg if you look closely…Ouch.
