I went to Paint Creek today. I wanted to go upstream farther to look for the wild browns, but the weather wasn't very pleasant so I stayed near the truck. I caught 7 bows and 4 six inch varmint fish (redhorse i think). I caught one good bow. The tape said 17 and 7/8 inches. Of course I have to say 18 so it sounds better though. In the pic the rod is a couple inches higher and makes it look shorter. Here ya go.

I wouldn't guess it a bit less than 17 29/32 but the camera angle could be makig it look smaller than it really is.:smile:

Serioulsy nice fish!

Haha thanks. I forgot to mention what else I saw. I was fishing a small hole when about 20 ft upstream I saw something rolling around on the edge of the water. I walked up to see what it was, and it turned out to be a mink with a huge bullfrog. The mink wrestled the big frog for a while then trotted in to the woods before seeing me and dropping the frog. I hope it came back for it since the frog was pretty torn up.
