    Default 12.5 pound soho brown

    Hey all I thought I would post this just for the simple fact it is a massive trout. Sad to say it wasnt caught on a fly rod, but it is impressive at that.
    I wish I could claim it but a buddy of mine got it on a crankbait while they where running water.

    Were you smallmouth fishing with crankbaits or trying to catch monster trout?

    Default Monster Trout

    WOW.


    I'm curious if that monster had been caught on a fly rod what size rod would of had to be used. I have a 5wt so would it have snapped under his pressure?

    VERY nice fish. Where exactly is the Holston? I fish the Caney at least once a week, so where is it from the Caney?

    Default soho

    The south holston is near bristol tn/va. It would be quite a haul from the caney. And no he was fishing for trout with a lucky craft plug. In the past few weeks he's caught a 8 pound rainbow from the soho, and a 9 pound brown from Watauga, and now this one. And as far as the boat he has a polar craft flat bottom with a 65 evirude jet prop. He puts in just below the wiers and floats almost to Bluff City then jets back up. Im gonna get a bigger weight rod and go with him soon.

    Ditto, but I am in the process of teaching myself. I've got all the gear I need, but all I need to do now is perfect my cast, get better flies, and then I can start slaying them.
