    Default My wife's giant Brown

    Spent about 5 days in TN staying on the Watauga with family. I caught a bunch of nice size fish, but my wife's brown stole the show!



    It was dark by the time we got it in, took it op to the garage to get the hooks out, and my wife made the decision on her own to let it go....she said it was just too pretty to keep. Needless to say I was very proud of her. She caught it on a micro spinning rod with a rapala lure.

    Congrats to your wife on a lifetime fish, and on her decision to extend it's life by releasing it.

    Congratulations on a fish of a lifetime, that thing is huge. It's awesome that she let it go that's a true sportsman. She'll want to go back every year and look for one bigger and better.

    Zoiks!!! Awesome fish. Did your wife run out and get a manicure just knowing she was about to face greatness that night?

    That is what I love about fishing tail-waters so much...! When I used to fish-monger; I would crush all the barbs and cut off one of the three-hooks on the the treble hook. That made it much easier on the fish and limited any difficulty in getting them back to the water. Beautiful fish!
