Actually, I'm not a big fan of trout for my plate. I love me some yellow perch, walleye, bluegill, and crappie, but the more fishier tasting catches like your trout and catfish I'm not crazy about. We cook them up every now and then, because it's nice to eat what you catch, but 9 times out of 10 we're releasing these trout (like we did with these) to be caught later. The more trout you release in the fall, the bigger they'll be in the spring. The ones we caught today could be another 5 or so inches when we go after them when the snow melts. A guy just north of us was tearing up the crappie. Wish we could have ripped into those, but no luck. We were targeting trout anyway though. It's so awesome that the state stocks these trout in local lakes like they do. Once you find them it's so easy for kids to catch them. I taught my boy how to use a spinning reel. His second cast, after I simply showed him how, and he lands one. Pretty cool. And they fight nicely of course. Splashing all around. Had to remind him to get it away from the water because they have a tendency to flop around, spit the hook, or slip out of your hands and land back in the water.

What what?!

:-b Just jokin' I love trout for eating but I can understand why you don't. You should take him to a stream with trout. It's a totally different ball o' wax. Crystal clear water, you have to use 2 lb. line, and when you hook one downstream you gotta really finesse it to reel it in without breaking your line. I love bass fishing, it's exciting don't get me wrong but trout fishing in a good river takes the cake for me. ;-D

... and catfish are only good if they're deep fried, and even shoe leather is good if it's deep fried. :-b

I hear ya on the fight of a trout on a 2# test. Never done it, but I got crazy fly fishing friends who swear by it. We're taking baby steps right now. He still likes catching bass over anything else right now. Caught 4 species this year, bullhead, bluegill, bass, and now trout. So it's a good start. :-D

I've never caught a freshwater drum either, I have caught a saltwater drum though. Just one. It was pretty sizeable. We didn't eat that one, but I have had drum before and it was tasty. It was saltwater drum though. :-?

Quick update. 40 truckloads of dirt moved over the weekend. I'll get some pictures up this coming weekend.
